End is set at +30 minutes for the series, but I defeated that and set to "on time" for this episode of the earliest recording (when the conflict first showed up).
This explains it. I've run into this very problem before and under similar circumstances.
Unfortunately, the DVR does not do a good job handling situation where the start/end padding is adjusted after a recording is set. If you remove padding, the conflict detection does not always recognize the lack of padding. If you add padding, the conflict detection sometimes adds more to the end time than is actually added (causing conflicts with programs airing after the scheduled end time). It is incredibly annoying, but I've run into this more than once when adjusting padding for live events to try to avoid conflicts.
The only way I know of to avoid the issue is not to adjust the padding of a program already scheduled. Instead, cancel the program (remove it completely from the To Do List) and then set a new recording with the newly desired padding. This will avoid the issue you described.
I reported the issue on at least two occasions over the years, but it remains unresolved.Go to the full post
