I'm pretty sure you can put a negative value in for start early to 
effectively start late.  One of the things on my list of things to look 
at is allowing the scheduler to start recording overlapping programs if 
the overlap ends within X minutes of the start of the program that 
normally would not have been recorded to account for those 1-2 minute 
over-runs that NBC and ABC seem to like to do now.
