Can I assume that you mean 300 seconds of post-roll for everything
and not 5 minutes end late time for 19:00 show on channel 3? If so,
this would seem like the expected behavior. If the scheduled time
to end is 20:30 and there is nothing scheduled after it at that time,
the recorder would start the 300 seconds of post-roll. Once the
recorder has started doing this, I don't think there is any provision
to truncate it in the middle. At 20:32 the scheduler finds that both
tuners are busy. You could "stop recording" on the show in postroll
then add your new show but I guess that you're really requesting that
post-roll time should be interrupted =).

I think so. I'd test it to verify if I didn't already believe that
you description is spot on.
