I was just thinking of posting a comment about this, as I see it frequently as
well. Just now, it happened and I just happened to pull up the OSD just before
I tried to fastforward. It showed position 0 of 0... like there was no
recording, or that I was completely caught up... which I wasn't; I was about
10 minutes behind.

I believe this is a known problem.
