I have found a condition where the user interface can hang up.  If you
create a zero length file from recording a program and then go to the
"play" or "delete" dialog boxes then the user interface will hang up
while trying to show the preview.  It seemed to be permanent, none of
the keys (on the remote control) did anything.

I solved the problem by deleting the file, then it didn't hang up and
I could delete the entry from the dialog box.

If you want to know how to create a zero length file then just let the
disk fill up.  A new file was created, but it never got filled in.

On the same subject the "delete" dialog box will hang up for a few
seconds when deleting a large recording file.  Could this be done in a
separate thread to make it look better.
