In my case, that was the problem as well.. Two programs, back to back
on the same channel, 8 seconds offset, the 2nd one didn't record.
Seems like there must be a good way to handle that case, even if we
can't handle the other ones listed in this thread.
[ ] Overlap Control
[ ] start early if needed by ____ minutes on the same channel
[ ] start late if needed _____ minutes on the same channel
[ ] start early if needed by ____ minutes on a different channel
[ ] start late if needed _____ minutes on a different channel
Options like this, it sounds like, would answer all the issues raised
in this thread so far.
