OK, it was just a thought, since it sounded somewhat related. Though note,
even with your 5 minutes padding (assuming it's soft padding, not hard), if
there isn't an extra tuner available and it needs to do back to back
recording on a tuner, the soft padding would get chopped off and the
problem would resurface. Or would myth kick you out of live tv before
trying to do a back-to-back? I don't recall anymore how myth behaves in the
scenario...the benefits of having lots of tuners :)
