The assumption is that the program does start on time so playback starts there,
but you have your 1 early minute if the program did start early.
I find it a good idea as most programs do start on time here, and I use the
early start / late end for the rare cases that this is not the case.
YMMV, and making it optional (if it is not already) will probably suit others.
