They wouldn't be split between recordings if you have each recording
sufficiently padded for the possible over run.  Assuming your tuners
can accommodate this.  At least we haven't had to hunt for programs.
They are always contained in the correct recording.  It's just a
matter of skipping to where the program we want to view starts inside
the recording.
