Not  end late, global postroll. Normally if I'd had this show scheduled from the
beginning,  it  would all have worked and it would have started at 20:30. But it
seems like the global postroll can't be interrupted once it's started, right?

If  I  had  stopped  the recording first, _then_ scheduled the show it would all
have  worked, but I thought it would stop the first show automatically. Would it
have  behaved  different  if i set a higher priority? The postroll should have a
priority of like -99 or something, that could solve it.

In  this case, apparently, the scheduler didn't tell it to start a new recording
wich would interrupt the in-progress postroll. As I said above, maybe a priority
of the postroll would solve it smoothly.

Hope I'm making sense, just got back from an exam, kinda tired.
