#3203: MythTV creates duplicate recordings when end-late value is set
 Reporter:  anonymous  |       Owner:  ijr    
     Type:  defect     |      Status:  new

Component:  mythtv     |     Version:  0.20   
 Severity:  medium     |  
 I have noticed a little problem with mythtv

 In Australia, all show on free to air TV start late and finish even
 later than scheduled.
 So to avoid the issue of having cut-off recordings, I have set up
 mythtv with 10 minutes end-late settings.

 The problem with this is that whenever I press the record button (or R
 key), then the recording will start (e.g. display recording "xxxx")
 but then immediately after the channel number will show (just like I
 just changed channel), sound will interrupt for about .5s and it will
 start again.
 In the recordings session, I can then see two recordings "xxxx" , one
 lasting a few seconds, the other one being from the time I press the R
 key to when the recording is supposed to stop.
 This recording isn't marked as being currently recorded (e.g. it doesn't
 in red colour in the recording list).
 It does this for all channels.

 If I remove the 10 minutes end-late setting back to the default 0,
 then the above behaviour will not happen. Note that it usually takes
 about 5+ minutes before the problem start disappearing (and inversely,
 if I change the end-late settings, it takes 5+ minutes for the problem
 to start appearing).

 I have tried with a complete new installation of mythtv, including
 destroying the mysql database, and the problem always happen if I
 change the end-late setting.

 From mythtv distribution list:
 "the Single record rule that needs to be
 created is a mismatch for the program info of the recording
 in progress. This somehow causes the restart then things are
