That should not be a real problem as the MythTV database stores the
actual start time of a recording plus the scheduled start time, so it
knows what the preroll is for any recording.  This is already used for
an optional feature in the frontend where it will start playback at
the scheduled start time instead of the start of the recording.

What is a problem though is that lots of broadcasters do not actually
start their programming at the scheduled times.
