The way I minimize this problem is to use manual reservations to record back-to-back programs from the same channel to a single file, and then I use Generate Name to create the file names, which I copy and paste into VideoRedo as I edit out commercials and separate the single recorded file into individual program files. For example, today I ran RT with the following:
Knights of Prosperity and In Case of Emergency [at 20:56-22:04 on ABC every W]
*Knights of Prosperity
*In Case of Emergency
In Louis' example above, he has three tuners and he scheduled four reservations. However, Prison Break and 24 are back-to-back programs on the same channel, so if he had used a manual reservation to record both to a single file, he would have only had three reservations and trimmultiplefusion would not have been required. Also, he could have padded each reservation and not missed a single second of any programs he recorded.
Edit: Actually, to avoid the back-to-back problem you want to have padding. Otherwise, RT might schedule back-to-back programs on different channels to multiple Fusions on the same PC. Padding ensures that they will go to different tuners if there are enough tuners, and the start and stop times will not be close.
