I would dearly love to have a global start early / end-late setting, 
with the scheduler showing the those modified times, yes. Now i have to 
set them time and again on all recordings...


P.S. on one program, which is currently scheduled after a seemingly very 
popular (i don't care about it myself) live program, i have an end-late 
of 60 minutes.....
