I would leave it as is.
When I have back to back recordings I simple stop watching the first
recording at the end of the first programme (and mark it properly, just
in case I want to watch it again or export the recording) then move to
the second recording and skip to the beginning of the second programme
(mark it again).
All this skipping and marking takes maybe half a minute once you're used
to it. Its not worth a change for me.
If you really dont want the overlap you can configure a rule that puts
both programmes into one recording. (add "end late" for the second game
plus overtime and make it an advanced rule but only matching the first
Btw, what do you want to gain anyway? The only thing I see is saving a
few megabytes in the time frame between recording and deleting the
games. Or if you have only an analog tuner and the issue is with all
back-to-back recordings. Then move the end-late minutes to postroll
