Multi-rec works great for digital tuners, but I must specify the hard extra recording time, not the soft extra recording time.
The soft extra recording time will get deleted on back to back recordings even if there are enough tuners to do an overlapped

Does this work for single stream tuners? (eg HDPVR or analog tuners?) I'm not sure you can specify any multi-rec tuners for them.
