> Daniel, please review the tv_rec changes - there was a nasty race between StartRecording and StopLiveTV and I'm not sure if my fix is entirely correct. The kill ringbuffer command in StopLiveTV would run after everything in StartRecording had and kill the newly created ringbuffer.

This looks right.

That code was in there from the old LiveTV implementation, where the
frontend took care of killing the ringbuffer at the end of LiveTV
with StopLiveTV(), and reused the ringbuffer on channel changes.

Now we should be using the kill ringbuffer flag with LiveTV like we
do for recordings; which this change does.
