You just brilliantly illustrated one of the problems with doing it this way.
Sometimes the fallible human is going to make mistakes. Though I admit this
is the way I handle these situations and it's not that onerous.

I don't think it's unreasonable to expect Myth to be able to handle
consecutive shows on the same channel better than it currently does. But I
do think that soft-padding is not the best solution. I'd rather see Myth be
able to write to two files at once from a single recorder so that the hard
padding can be preserved for both shows. This means you don't have to worry
about remembering not to delete a show because it's got part of another show
at the start or end. And you don't have to go hunting for the missing piece
of the show you want to watch.
