Modify recording on DVR.Set to more than 2 min. early

I record several programs in Rai Italia (Ch 3281). I am not sure why, but the TV schedule in Xfinity most of the times does not match what is being transmitted. If I want to record a program in its entirety,  I need to modify the recording to “Stop 30 minute late” but at times they start early and my only option is to “Start 2 minutes early”.  May I suggest increasing that to start 30 minutes early. To compensate for that I also record the program just before what I what to record but that is a hit and miss because the program before might not be transmitted.

Italy operates the scheduling of programming differently than the U.S.A. so this method should be used to set a recording to ensure the program is recorded in its entirety:

Using the manual option, will extend the program up to 7 hrs if necessary.
