 Replying to [comment:7 kormoc]:

 "The only reason the first part of the recording is not LiveTV is because
 you explicitly moved it from the LiveTV recording group by pushing R while
 watching LiveTV."

 Exactly, and all the other pieces should have been moved out too.  The bug
 is that
 the "R" does not apply to the later pieces.  How could that not be a bug?
 Invert the logic, why would an end user ever want to move just the first
 part of such a recording out of LiveTV?  Or is the end user supposed to
 come back every half hour and hit R for each subsequent piece?

 Sometimes one does not have the option of setting manual record because
 the end time is not known ahead of time.  In this case I was converting
 some video my daughter had made, and not having watched it before, I had
 no idea when it would end.

 I agree that Myth does not work well for this application.  Presently
 there is a keyboard on my Myth machine, and since first stumbling over
 this issue I bave been using mencoder instead.  (That had the added bonus
 that the result was an AVI and not a NUV.)  But once the keyboard comes
 off (it's a DVR for the living room, not a general purpose computer),
 running anything other than MythTV is going to be very difficult, and we
 are still going to need to convert analog to digital from time to time.
