I do it simply with a manual record rule. I purchase the event, schedule 
a manual event to start a few minutes early (on a different channel) and 
then manually change the channel after myth changes to the channel it 
knows. Its a bit clunky but with cutpoint editing available I can cut 
the junk from the front of the recording before exporting it.
