i tried a new move i added 10 minutes on each side of the shows in hopes that because i remember it saying it will clip up to 5 minutes so 10 minutes will insure it gets the show.
also is there a minimum time requirement that 1 show has to be over for before that tuner will free up so marathons can be captured with overlap for example.
the show tickle witch is the person from moonshiners who i think went legal is 30 minutes.
usually the discovery channel will play repeats of the show in the hours leading up to the new episode.
so lets say 7 to 730 pm episode with a 1 minute overlap it should be 659 to 731 pm
729 to 801 pm is episode 2 759 to 831 pm is episode 3 and so on
during 729 to 801 pm both tuners are recording at 732 pm tuner 1 has ended and tuner 2 is still recording
then what should happen at 759 both tuners should be recording again for 3 minutes overlap.
instead for example at 758 or 757 tuner 1 stops leaving that run incomplete while tuner 2 will still get part of the previous episode and all but 1 or 2 minutes of the current episode.
it seems to only happen when both tuners are doing back to back recording and not limited to marathons it could be tickle takes up 2 episodes from 7 to 8 pm and then airplane repo goes from 8 to 9 pm and another show say deadliest catch 10 to 11 and then repeats for the 3 hour later repeat.
