Same here: it's a right pain in the backside when they do this! There isn't a 
simple solution to it, either, because the EPG isn't always correct and the

I even do the same when there is half-an-hour of news in the middle of a film: 
makes it much simpler to edit and put onto DVD than trying to splice two 
separate recordings.
