It is a DST thing. It is trying to make the best of a bad situation. There
was no 2:40 on April 3, 2005.

The first time through the date is fetched from the DB and made a DateTime
from a string. When you make the delete a time_t is sent to the backend and
converted (as a time_t this time, not by parsing it as a string). The time
in question doesn't exist, so a time that does exist is returned.

This would only apply to recordings starting/ending in time that doesn't
