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.
