Here's some stuff that would be good to know:
When does it restart the playback, random or at the beginning/
end etc.? 
Does it happen If you use rtjpeg?
If you start a recording without watching it, then start watching it
from the recorded dialog after 5 minutes, will it reach the end
without quitting?
Some system specs cpu/os, mythtv setup (all local or lan etc).

Is it possible that you have some sort of write cache enabled
that delays disk writes?
