#1566: Recorded Programs page displays incorrect file sizes

 Priority:  minor             |   Milestone:

 The recorded programs page is displaying the incorrect file sizes (using
 SVN 9441).

 The first problem seems to be that all file sizes are off by a factor of

 On the recorded programs page of mythweb, my recording of 'The Colbert
 Report' shows
 a file size of 1.1 TB.  The actual file size should be 1.1 GB.  All file
 sizes are
 off by this factor of 1024, so the first thing I did was remove the
 ...) on line 279 of includes/programs.php.  This showed the proper unit of
 the file.

 The other problem is that some files are showing a negative file size
 (even after removing the gmp_mul('1024', ...) call.

 Using the original SVN 9441 source, the recorded programs page of mythweb
 shows a
 file size for my L&O: SVU recording as '-2009402966016 B'.  When I remove
 multiply by 1024 call above the number changes to: '-1962307584 B'.  The
 actual file
 size is ~2.2GB (it's a one hour recording from a PVR-250 card using the
 settings for bitrate, etc.).

 This would appear to be an integer overflow, perhaps?  I'm running this on
 Apache 2.0.55 and PHP 5.0.5 on an Intel 32-bit architecture.  I'm going to
 try to investigate the negative numbers when I have more time later in the
 week.  I'll try to submit a single patch that covers both issues, but if
 not I'll at least add one that removes the extra multiplying by 1024.
