For how lone and how often are you extending the recording?  If the
recording ends before you extend it, it's too late.  Any extension
after a recording has already stopped is ignored.

Also, do you extend recordings multiple times by creating new
overrides each time?  That's not supported.  kSingleRecords and
kOverrideRecords can only be extended by editing the ending time for
the existing rule.  Doing it any other way can produce erratic

That's all there should be to it.  Add/edit an override rule and tell
the scheduler to reschedule.
