I just noticed that the NASCAR race which started at 5:00pm here in the Mountain time is being recorded via PTAT, I guess because it extends onto prime time. But when I press the red button, it shows that all the networks started recording at 5:00pm. Is the software not smart enough to record the other networks at the normal times?

PTAT records PRIME time hours.

8-11 eastern & pacific mon to sat
7-10 central & mountan mon to sat

If a sporting event that is scheduled continue into primetime starts shortly before primetime then PTAT will start at the earlier time for that network.
