Hi,

I'm facing a problem with scheduled recordings which span across day change over.
OS: Windows Server 2012 R2
Version: 5.4.1.0 build 758

Steps to reproduce:
1. Setup timer with recurring schedule e.g. Weekly on Mondays from 23:50 until 02:10
2. Recording starts at 23:50, but does not stop at 02:10
I haven't let it run for a whole week, I guess that it stops next Monday at 02.10 am.

Creating two separate schedules (one until 00:00 and one beginning at 00:00 using the next day of week) works, but due to slight delays in streaming I would have to manually cut my recordings which annoyed me in the past already (different stream recording method which cut me every 2 hours).
Would it be possible to get this issue fixed? I assume that recording from Monday 11.50pm to next Monday 02.10am is not the common use case so replacing current behavior does not seem to bother anyone.

Thanks for your help and best regards,
Jan-Frederik

I've been able to find a workaround: Simply create overlapping schedules, i.e. if you want to record from Sun 23:50 until Mon 00:20:
Every Sunday 23:50 - 00:10
Every Monday 00:00 - 00:20

Logfile then contains:
23:50:00 - ABC - Starting scheduled recording
00:00:00 - ABC - Skipping scheduled recording because recording is already active
00:10:00 - ABC - Not stopping scheduled recording because another schedule is active
00:20:00 - ABC - Stopping scheduled recording
