Okay, everyone is making this more complex than it needs to be.
The 28 day rule basically is "don't automatically record the same episode more than once within 28 days". So if it's skipping a recording, it probably thinks that the two episodes are identical.
If you manually pick one and select "Record this episode" then that is not an "automatic recording", and the 28 day rule won't apply to it. It'll still apply to the other one, however, and yeah, your manual choice will remove the other one.
So, pick the other one and say "record this episode" on it too. Tivo will record them both. Why? Because when you manually tell it to do something, you're playing the trump card. It always should do everything you specifically tell it to do. The only time the 28 day rule applies is on "automatic" recordings like Wishlists or SPs or even repeating manual recordings.
Anything with "one check" in the ToDo list is something you specifically told Tivo to do, and the 28 day rule will not apply to that specific airing/recording.
All comments made in this post are my opinion and my opinion alone. Deal with it.
