In your setup.conf you should have:

UseVps = 1
VpsFallback = 1
VpsMargin = 120

The last one sets the number of seconds before the scheduled start time that 
VDR begins monitoring the p/f table for the event start.

Also whenever you set a new timer you need to set the 'flag' field to 5 - if 
using vdradmin-am tick the 'use VPS' box in the New Timer window - as well as 
setting the start time with no margin.

The TVAnytime patch includes this VPS Fallback patch, but you don't need the 
rest of it just to do accurate recording.
