It's pretty common for me.  I'd never start watching a show that's on 
"now" until at least fifteen minutes after its official start time. 
There's always something else on the disk, or something else to do 
(catch up on OpenDTV).

Are you asking the cost of the product or the fifteen minutes?  I have 
one of the DirecTV HD TiVos, so mine is a little more costly than average.
