just so long as it is configurable... For example, I record the BBC
World News every morning at 8am. However there are three broadcasts
every day, at 6, 7, and 8. I don't want the 6 or 7 am broadcast, I
only want the 8am. Oh, but I also want to record the 6pm broadcast...
Fuzzy matching probably wouldn't work in this case.

Well, I just set up Channel record and leave it be. Except for
certain cable channels (where I just set up a weekly record and pay
attention to the schedules) this seems to work pretty well for me.
The only time I really care about start times are:
1) When I want to record a program once (single-record). In this case it's
extremely unlikely that the program will have moved.
2) When there are multiple instances of a program and I want to specifically
pick the instance I want (timeslot recording). Note that in this case
I would want a fuzzy match, but +/- an hour is way too much for my use case.

Unfortunately I don't.
