Hi,

	I haven't seen this option, I will try this with 5 minutes before
time and 15 minutes late. I will see what happens.

	Thanks for your help
Stephane

If you make this  a global setting (rather than just for this schedule),
then I think you will get what you want. Dutch channels are equally
unpunctual, so I have a global 5 minutes at either end of a program, and so
if I have 2 or more consecutive programs I will get the end of one on the
beginning of the next.

I agree, though, it would be useful to have a 'record the bits that don't
conflict' option, for those times when different channels overlap by a short
time.

Regards,

Chris
