This, and other threads like it, suggest that there is a
problem with the labeling. Global "pre-roll" to try to start
the encoder early in order to catch the first few second and
per-show "pre-roll" to force a change in the scheduled record
time are very different things and should not be confused.
Unlike yesterday, I'll propose a solution to an anticipated
problem rather than just checking it in =).

I've modified the advanced options page to label the per-show
offsets as "Start Early (minutes)" and "End Late (minutes):".
I don't believe any internal changes need to be made at this
point but this should help users to make a clear distinction
between these two separate features. If there are no objections
or better ideas I'd like to go ahead and make this change.
