You might also find it helps to put in a time limit on the schedule - I
can't remember the exact syntax, but something like 'and start_time <
now() + interval 1 day'. This'll prevent the scheduler wasting it's
time by trying to schedule more than a day in advance. You could even
cut this right down to an hour or two if necessary - if you're recording
absolutely everything then it shouldn't matter.
