I'd like to be able to say "If it's Football or Golf (final day) then  
record 20% longer than usual"  (The subtitle for golf usually says  
"final day" and it's only then that there's likely to be a play-off).


"if that rules fires, delay following records accordingly (especially  
the recording straight after)."

Any ideas on whether that's possible?  It's all just database  
mashing, so a cron script that alters upcoming recordings could  
probably handle it....

Similarly, does anyone know if the DVB EIT data (now and next) tends  
to reflect programming extensions, or do they not correct that?
