That's an option to add a "general" pre-record and/or post-record slack to your 
recordings. That saves you changing each and every one, and worrying about what 
happens when you want to record two successive programs on the same channel. 
There are many, many discussions in this list about "pre-roll" and "post-roll" 
time adjustments and their consequences.
