1 - yes, that's because if you add start padding Tivo's internal clash mechanism will cancel the scheduled recording, not the suggestion. There may be a workaround, but I've not found it. 2 & 3 - I don't believe these are anything to do with Endpad. If you added end padding which then overlapped with another show, TiVo would cancel the second show, not start it late. Several people have requested that as a function, but I've not added it, honest! Sounds like an IR realted problem to me. If it happens again please post the log just to be sure.
