I don't know anything about the ticket but I did I quick test tonight.

I'm running 0.19 fixes from about two months ago (atrpms) and I set up
to record Top Gear ( the first programme of the day at 7pm) with the
option to 'start 8 minutes early'.

The recording appeared to start at 6:52pm as expected but, when
watching it afterwards I had 20s of "BBC3 Gets going in a moment', 2
mins of news and trailers and then the start of the programme.  It
appears that the previous 6 minutes of non-transmission did not affect
the recording.

This would suggest that the issue of catching the first program to be
aired has been fixed in 0.19 fixes.
