Actually it would make some sense in this case to make the bookmarking adjustable, with the 
"scheduled" time being the default.

If the programs /regularly/ start earlier or later on one or more specific channels then a bulk 
adjustment would seem to be the thing to do, but of course that will involve extra fiddly settings 
and so on...

An odd thought while writing this - have you checked that the time is correctly set? If the guilty 
channel always runs early, maybe your clock is slow or theirs is fast? If the latter, you have 
grounds for complaining to the station.
