#3705: Patch to display proper status of "Category record over-time" recordings
 Reporter:  Bill <cizek at rcn.com>  |       Owner:  ijr    
     Type:  defect                |      Status:  new    
 Priority:  minor                 |   Milestone:  unknown
Component:  mythtv                |     Version:  head   
 Severity:  medium                |     Mlocked:  0      
 I setup mythtv to record "Sports Event" programs for an extra 60 minutes.
 If I watch the program during this extra time, the "Watch Recording"
 screen incorrectly shows the recording as finished, the OSD displays the
 wrong program length, and skipping forward doesn't work.

 i.e. Recording an event from 2:00 - 3:00 will actually record until 4:00.
 If I start watching at 3:30, mythtv will assume the recording length is
 1:30 and will not skip forward past the 1:30 mark.  Once the recording is
 actually finished it works normally.

 In the above example, at 3:30 the mythfrontend logs "TV: Attempting to
 change from None to WatchingPreRecorded".  This is incorrect -- it should
 be "WatchingRecording".  This is caused by mythtv using the default
 "record past end of show" value to calculate the status of the recording.
 The attached patch adds logic to use the "category record over time" value
 for this calculation when appropriate.
