holy cow!  half an hour before and after?  puts things into
perspective for us who take our 'fairly' regular schedules for
granted. :)  i guess i can't get pissy anymore when i miss the very
end of a show and i'm recording -2, +5.  ;)

maybe it should be suggested that (for non North American Myth Users)
instead of having multiple tuner cards they have multiple Mythboxen
with a TB of diskspace per channel! ;)

too bad the channels don't have some kind of marker that distinguishs
when a program is actually beginning so that all the pre/post crap you
have to deal with could be automatically chopped off for you.  kinda
like autocommflag, but autoprogram flag :)
