Are you using the global pre/post roll for this?  That's the intended 
behavior.  To schedule an individual show to start early/end late, use 
the "Start early" and "End late" options in the Advanced Recording 
Options screen.  This will introduce a conflict; back-to-back shows 
will be recorded on another card (or at another time) if available.
