I haven't been following this thread very closely, but I definitley like the
idea of preserving the file header on ringbuffer files.
It woud simplify a lot for the windows filter, espesialy during channel
As it is now, I will have to do some more or less ugly hacks in order to
make channel changing in livetv play nice with the windows filters.
