Not sure that its a drawback of the old guide. Recording as "first run on this channel" should get around the time change.
Someone else here said they had set a series to record "first run" and ended up missing some episodes, so even that's not foolproof. I guess if you really want to be sure, you could set it to record "this channel any time". I had to do that with Wind Tunnel on Speed when they began changing the time each week and I kept missing it. I just get one repeat.
Amazing Race only runs overtime because of the stick-and-ball programs on CBS in the late afternoon. They haven't figured out that a nominal 1-hour football game can get dragged out to 4 or 5 hours. I record 60 Minutes, The Good Wife and Mentalist and usually just record everything from 7 p.m.until midnight to get those three shows.
I know why broadcasters do that one minute delayed start, but you would think by now they would have caught on that they are not building much good will from their viewers. It is an annoyance not only for those who are recording but also for those watching in real time. Just as an aside Amazing Race is usually on CTV and runs on schedule there.
I haven't seen this with the 8300, but occasionally I've seen it make 2 recordings, first just a few seconds, then another with the full hour. I've seen this on 60 Minutes, and it misses part of the intro fron the first recording to the second. I suspect it's something to do with simsubbing (I record on CBS channel 15, then it jumps to CHCH channel 11 to get the Canadian commercials) or else it's when the networks randomly change start times by a minute off the hour. But if you have a NB3, that's a whole other can of worms.
