If you configure things so that new rules have a small negative hard
lead in and lead out times AND larger positive soft lead in and lead
out times this problem can be reduced.
Also, I have seen some odd scheduling problems that have been resolved by
clicking on a desired program and selecting record this timeslot - only to
have MythTV think about it for a while and then de-select a program that
obviously was possible. Maybe the EPG changed while I wasn't looking. :-(
