Hope I am not beating a dead horse here - my suggestion also would be to
make sure your clock is up-to-date with a good NTP server (usually taken
care of my a distro, but not always as was in my case not updating). 
For most shows, the start up is on the money - for a few NBC shows where
they have the little bits during the credits, I just extend the
recording by a minute.  Also, with a multirec "virtual tuner" setup, the
thursday shows where this happens for me, I think the card just uses the
same card and makes two recordings (but I might be wrong).
