Well, your post is pretty hard to understand. You might get a better answer if you write a bit more clearly.

SageTV records based on the EPG or at specifically entered times. It doesn't detect changes in the length of programs, at least as far as I'm aware of. This being the case, it will switch to your next schedule recording at the time it is scheduled to start, unless your are currently watching Live TV, in which case it will ask you if you wish to switch channels (assuming you are watching the corresponding tuner).

So, unless you are watching Live TV, your recordings will end at their scheduled times if they go past their scheduled end times.

A user 'plugin' (stvi) has been created which addresses this issue -

But be aware that user plugins are not officially supported by SageTV.

Because they are locked into 60 minutes in an early timeslot CBS makes a heck of a mess for PVR users on Sunday nights during football season. What I do is just add an hour padding to anything I plan to record.
