It lists the times for all the gaps between recordings that it can see
in the schedule.  You can tell it how long a gap you want, and it will
list only gaps that big or bigger.  So if you wanted to change the
motherboard in your MythTV box, and you thought you would need eight
and a half hours to get that done safely, you would do this:

root at mypvr:~# gaps 8 30
Searching for a minimum duration of 8:30:00
Gap:  start=Sun 2019-06-02 09:13:00+12:00  end=2019-06-02
17:55:00+12:00  duration=8:42:00
Gap:  start=Tue 2019-06-04 04:23:00+12:00  end=2019-06-04
13:20:00+12:00  duration=8:57:00
End of scheduled recordings                end=2019-06-09

Sorry about the line wrapping - my email client always does that.
