Perhaps I was wrong when I said pre/postroll. 

I was referring to the settings called 'RecordPreRoll' and
'RecordOverTime' in the settings database table; I can't check what
they're called in the GUI right now.

Anyway, my intention is to capture 10 minutes after a scheduled program
end in case the TV station is running late. I always want that where
possible, so I'd prefer that a second recording started on the other
card if available.
