I just received a 'mythbackend --printsched' from someone on the user's
group, and the times on all the recording entries looks correct. He
says his one hour (plus a bit) recording always record for six hours.
There's nothing in his printsched that is always recorded six hours
later. In fact, of his three simultaneous late night recordings that go
long, tuners 2 and 3 often aren't used until late the next night.

Good question. Fedora dropped support for 32 bit systems after Fedora
30 and both of Klaas's systems are later versions, so that's probably
not the cause.
