I very much like seeing the actual [rounded] starttime displayed in
PBB.  It's extremely useful when I or my hardware screw up and the
recording starts late or automatically gets restarted after some
failure.  FWIW, if I used greater than a 30-second pre-roll or
start-early, however, I'd probably be annoyed by the starttime -
1-minute too.
