I was referring to this tired old topic that has been rehashed
for years. There is no magic solution. If the content of a
program is expected to extend outside the listed times, then
the scheduler needs to be told with endoffset that the highest
priority shows must record to their conclusion. If you expect
to require extra time to capture content for the majority of
your rules, DefaultEndOffset can be used.

However, If time that is anticipated to be necessary in order
to capture content is allowed to be dropped, then the content
of the show will be truncated. No amount of hand waving, double
think, bait and switch or proposed mind-reading algorithms will
change this.
