Exactly. These are the settings that require the scheduler to account
for the specified time.
Jason is confusing the aforementioned settings ("Default 'Start Early'
minutes for new recording rules" and "Default 'End Late' minutes for
new recording rules") with the settings:
Time to record before start of show (in seconds)
This global setting allows the recorder to start before the scheduled
start time. It does not affect the scheduler. It is ignored when two
shows have been scheduled without enough time in between.
Time to record past end of show (in seconds)
This global setting allows the recorder to record beyond the scheduled
end time. It does not affect the scheduler. It is ignored when two shows
have been scheduled without enough time in between.
Completely understandable, as we have far too many settings. (The ones
Jason is thinking of probably shouldn't even be settings, but that's a
whole other can of worms.)
