[mythtv] Recording Time does not match actual file length

The recording time cited when a person hits "watch a recording" is not 
decided by the actual amount of time present in the file, which can cause 
problems.. Specifically, this problem shows itself when one begins 
recording in the middle of a show..

Perhaps the start time can be recorded? and then instead of it saying 
3:00pm to 3:30pm, it could say 3:19 - 3:30 or such? Another way that the 
duration of the file could be determined is by doing one of those 
calculations that mp3 players definitely do.. something like time = file 
length / bitrate or something..
