According to my experience, it means an exact time frame (identical
start and end time).
So if the schedule is changed just 5 minutes, the show will not be recorded.
Instead I usually use "find and record one showing of this program",
which does not care about channel or time. In some cases that does not
work (if it is a single episode of a series, then it will record a
different episode instead.
