I already use the RecordPreRoll setting to get the channel tuned 5
seconds before the recording needs to start, and the start early
setting so that the recording starts 2 minutes before the show starts.

There is enough time for tuning to fail and the recording be
rescheduled on another card before the show actually starts.
