Vu+ PVR addon is getting updates again

Prior to version 3.17, I would generally surf my guide on a weekly basis and set all my timers by selecting the record item on the context menu. I would then go to the timer settings and change the timer type to 'One time' and manually change the start and finish times to account for timer padding. With the latest version (3.17), I am unable to change the recording type in the timer settings anymore, thus unable to change my start and finish times.
There is an option to set padding, but when I check to see if padding has been applied afterwards it's always blank, so not sure if its been applied or not. Unfortunately there is currently no info label available in Kodi for the timer padding. If there was, I could show this information on the timer screen and know for sure that padding times had been applied.
Is there a setting in the latest update that I need to change in order for me to continue setting timers in the way that I have been doing for the past 5/6 years? I a quick flick through the PVR settings, but couldn't immediately see anything that I could change.

 There was a bug in the timer types code which meant there were all messed up so in 3.17 I cleaned them up. It's of course possible I excluded your use case in error. If you could detail with screen shots what behaviour you are missing I can try and restore what you want now that the code is fixed.

Most users set the padding on the Enigma2 device (assuming you always use the same padding) instead of using Kodi as for Enigma2 devices there is no notion of padding when setting up timers so it's done by editing start and end times. This is problematic as start and end times can compound padding which can be very confusing.

There is also a default padding setting in the main PVR settings in Kodi but it suffers from the same compounding problem as setting them locally.

Am I right in saying you want to change a “One time guide-based” timer to a manual timer? One time guide based would be fine if you could set the padding (this may or may not be a bug, I'll have to look into it).
