Disk to tape append and overwrite, yeah I know

I rotate our incremental tapes every two weeks. On my nightly incrementals to tape, I want the tapes to be overwritten with the current sets from that night. Is my best option append-overwrite if no appendable?

I ask because I noticed that with this option, only the last few jobs of the night were on the tape. With append-terminate if no appendable, we were getting more jobs but if two jobs happened to be running, the later one would terminate. With overwrite, only the last few jobs were making it to tape.

Much thanks for any help.
