There is.  Plus, there's the "category to overrecord" hack, and there's
the option to just always put a "Time to record past end of show" on
shows you know are likely to run over.  I generally put an end late on
every sports recording rule /as well as/ every show airing on the same
channel as the sports show until after the evening news (generally, when
they tend to catch up if they delay the later shows as opposed to
joining "our regularly-scheduled programming, already in progress").
