Okay, my recording rules aren't too bad, but since Australia seems to
suffer fropm drift, it's difficult to address in the recording rules.

I understand that with the soft start and end times that if you have to
change channels, but since these shows are on the same channel I would
have thought this was a little easier.

As for my settings, doesn't setting the recording rules to start early
and end late for two back to back shows just force them onto different
inputs anyway, which is what I'm doing to get the some results using the
soft start end stuff.

Okay, that's why I asked.  And I didn't mean to imply that it was
broken, just that I could see a different way it might work.
