You could just add enough padding to the schedule so that it is sure
to record the whole program.  I've done this for one of my wife's
shows that has been running half an hour behind since the NFL started
up.  I've actually doubled how long it records.  The extra disk space
for this is no big deal since we delete it after she watches the show
and it doesn't cause any conflicts on our tuners.
