#3507: NUV file EOF detection is broken
 Reporter:  anonymous  |       Owner:  ijr    
     Type:  defect     |      Status:  new    
 Priority:  minor      |   Milestone:  unknown
Component:  mythtv     |     Version:  head   
 Severity:  medium     |  
 This has been broken for a long time (since the livetv ringbuffer change?)
 but no one has reported it I think. Probably the cause for ticket 3440 as
 well, mythcommflag aborting early.

 nuppeldecoder.cpp gets false EOF positives for in-progress recordings, and
 sometimes recordings that have been paused for a long time. Playbacks
 basically end early and ask for deletion.

 This appears to be happening around line 940 and 948, the first two checks
 after "while(!gotvideo)". I think the fix would be similar to the changes
 made to ivtvdecoder.cpp http://svn.mythtv.org/trac/changeset/8883, but I
 just don't know what the equivalent variables are and how to get them (or
 how they work in ivtvdecoder.cpp)
