 Recenlty I noticed that the time a recording lasts is not the same as the
 time it has recorded although the show is completely recorded.
 This weekend I recorded TopGear, the whole show is recorded and can be
 played back properly, however when skipped a part I noticed the total time
 of the recording was only 25:53 mins, here the actual time of the
 recording is over an hour (mythweb reports 1:09h, which seems to be OK (I
 did not time to the second, but with my current pre/post-roll this seems
 far more plausible than the 25:53 mins.

 While looking at other shows I see the same issues for all recordings,
 although I cannot find a pattern as sometimes it is only a few minutes.
 Playback seems OK for all recordings.

 I will gladly provide logs but please provide some pointers as to what is

 I choose MythTV - General as component as I was unsure where to file this
