Just curious, but I guess this is what was discussed quite some time
ago where there is no ring buffer anymore and live tv is handled in the
same way as any normal program?

So this will make it possible to say "Record" while watching Live TV and you
could still get the entire recording, won't it?

Any idea yet how you are going to handle large files? Are you planning to
make some kind of mechanism that splits the files into chunks? Or? ...

Like I said: just curious :-)
