Double check your end time for that show under the scheduling options menu.
Sometimes certain shows run over a tad, and for the one's I care most about,
I set it to end recording a few minutes late.  Perhaps you accidentally set
it to end 11 mins late?  Or maybe you have it set to end 2 mins late, and
for some reason schedules direct had the end/start of the next show skewed
by 9 mins?
