Roamio clock slower/takes longer to record?

I have two TiVos at present, my Roamio and a rebuilt S3.

Last night I had them both set to record the same program with the same settings (start 3 minutes ahead, end two minutes after.)

The S3 recorded the show as expected.

The Roamio's recording started about 45 seconds later than the S3's (as clocked by where the Roamio recording started as reflected on the S3's recording.)

Since both get their time base from TiVo, I've got to ask, "Huh?"

Do I need to add an extra minute of pad to the head of my Roamio recordings?

My guess is that the difference is reflective of the clock getting set to the nearest minute when the tivo calls in. If the difference were more than a minute it might be cause for concern, or at least more concern. As it is, a 3 minute pad should be sufficient, I'd think.

You would think so, but in the Mountain time zone affiliates start their programs about three minutes early and run them late, with the net effect that I missed the start of the network program scheduled for "7 PM" by only starting it three minutes early (!).
