It would be useful if there was some way that this could be used to know 
when a particular program (like a sports event) is running late.

So if I have "60 Minutes" scheduled to record, but it's delayed due to 
football beforehand, the proper data isn't sent in the stream to 
indicate a new program starting. So keep extending the end time of the 
recording until it is seen.

This could even be useful for those annoying cases where networks 
intentionally skew start/end times by several minutes in a vain attempt 
to keep their audience captive. Basically, don't stop a recording until 
the next program starts.
