One thing about the global offsets that annoys me is that if two 
consecutive programs are from the same source but a different channel, 
the scheduler ignores the offset - even if there is another source that 
would have been able to pick up the second program thus allowing both 
programs to have the offset.

This seems to be by design as it implies it in the description on the 
settings page when you set it up.
