Then again, you could just use the UI to go in and look at them directly.

Manage Recordings|Recording Rules, select the recording rule whose start 
early/end late you want to check.

And to check all of them without having to work hard, but still using a 
UI, go to MythWeb Recording Schedules and look at the Start Early/End 
Late fields.

Utilities/Setup|Setup|TV Settings|General, then check the "Time to 
record before start/past end of show (in seconds)" settings.

The big benefit of using the UI that we provide is that you don't have 
to do any interpretation of raw data--which may not work the way you 
think it does.

Remember, there's a UI for a reason...
