Encoders that don't support multirec can still benefit from one extra 
encoder. If you set recordings to start early or end late, and two 
consecutive shows on the same channel are set to record, it will include 
the extra time in both from a single encoder. The extra time at the end 
of one show and the beginning of the next shoe are the same actual 
video, which will be included in both recordings.
