How are you observing this?

I'd be tempted to set up a script for the recording_pending event that
simply runs:

date >> /tmp/pending.log

to see when and how many times it's called.

I don't know if it's your use of mythexternalrecorder that makes any

Do you know whether these timings are parameters that I may have

Not that I'm aware of.
