#3730: mythbackend ignores early record starts

 If you schedule to record a program with a record start time that > 15
 minutes earlier then the EPG start time, mythbackend will not record the
 This problem happens when the box is shutdown and it wakes up
 automatically to record the program.
 The file scheduler.cpp will check that current time is less that 15
 minutes away than the recording start, otherwise will shutdown the box,
 because it is idle.

 The problem is that curtime is compared against startts (EPG start time)
 and not recstarts (actual recrding start time).
 My suggestion is to change the line 1223 from:
                     ((curtime.secsTo((*startIter)->startts) -
                     ((curtime.secsTo((*startIter)->recstartts) -

 and the line 1420 from:
                             if (curtime.secsTo((*startIter)->startts) -
                             if (curtime.secsTo((*startIter)->recstartts) -
