It would be safer to just adjust the settings in the 'record' table, so 
that only the shows you are recording are affected (not the guide 
listing itself).

This would do the trick: substitute for the proper chanid.

mysql> update record set endtime = (endtime + 02) where chanid = 1037;

But don't run it more than once unless you don't care if you record 4 
minutes or 6 or whatever.
If you don't care about that, and normally do not set your recording 
schedule more than say 2 days in advance, then you could do this in a 
cron script...
