[mythtv-users] Feature Request: allowable overlap for recordings?

Ran into a problem tonight where the clock on one of the backends was
off 8 seconds from the master backend. As a result, the first program
recorded, but the program after it was deemed "tuner busy" and didn't

Another example is several of the big networks making a program run
til, for example, 9:05pm This bumps a 9pm scheduled recording, when in
fact, I wouldn't mind missing the first 5 minutes to get the other 55.

Would would be nifty would be a configurable "fudge" factor, that you
could set, allowing the scheduler to pick up XXX minutes into the
program, as soon as the tuner became free. Or maybe, no fudge factor
at all. Maybe it checks every minute, and if a tuner suddenly became
free, it would start recording.
