I've tested the recordings i have now, and ofcource now that im actualy
trying to make the problem show it works just fine.

So either this has been fixed recently or the problem only shows up on
certain shows/channels that i don't have any recordings from currently.

When the problem showed up the osd that shows up when paused was parialy
outside the picture to the right.
And about the same size of the picture was also outside.

Anyway, i guess i have to wait and see if the problem comes back or if it's
realy fixed.
