[mythtv-users] How to make "Record this program in This Timeslot every ..." more tolerant to late arrival EPG changes ?

I am loving my recent MythTV install (Shuttle XS35GTV2 running MythBuntu
11.0.4, Mythtv =0.24.1 ).


This install runs using 2 DVB-T tuners who also populate the EPG information
by EIT. This all works fine.


Apparantly in Belgium the main broadcaster is changing the EPG rather
frequently during the day. If I make a schedule to record a daily show using
the "in this timeslot" option for a show that starts at 6h30pm and it gets
rescheduled to 6h31 the show does not get recorded at all.


I was thinking to use the Find and record one showing of this title every
day, but then it will only record the repeat episode which gets broadcasted
around noon (yes they use same description and title) . Record at any time
results in 4 recordings per day (they love repeating in Belgium) .


A great way to solve this would be a parameter that allows some tolerance to
this timeslot for example 5 minutes, so that if a program would change to a
5 minutes earlier or a 5 minutes later airing, it would still be recorded
and not simply ignored as happens now.


Does this exist ? Any ideas ?


Thx, Bart.
