I (unfortunately) can't help you with your padding problem, but want to comment on your problem with shows being cut off. I have found many, many shows do not start/stop on the clock as they should, esp cable series. To save myself the grief of ranting every time a ship gets clipped, I pad everything. 100%. I add one minute early, and 1 minute after, to every SP, and to every manual recording. I also pad every movie, 1 early, 5 late.
With the S2, I had to be careful I didn't clip shows by padding. But with the S3 and dual tuners, no problem. About the only exception is back-to-back shows on the same channel (Heroes>Studio 60). I pad Heroes 1 min early, and S60 1 min late.
It's easy to do, costs nothing, and my blood pressure has dropped 20 points since I started padding
. Now if we could convince TPTB to add a setting to auto-soft-pad, I'd be a happy guy
