Since --dd-grab-all first deletes all your schedule data, if it starts just before you are about to record a program, wouldn't it cause you to miss the first 2 minutes of your program (assuming it takes 2 minutes to run as Kris B. says) since without schedule data your BE no longer knows to record it?
