:)  Sorry, I didn't look to see that it was you who opened the ticket, I
thought it was someone else.

I think that a "mythbackend -v record" log captured during the time when
you're surfing LiveTV will be enough to see where the code is falling
through and not updating the endtime properly as it should.  We want to
see the whole process, as it starts the recorder up, changes channel(s),
and tears it down.  Attach the log to the ticket and if Daniel doesn't find
it first I'll take a look.

Yeah, for 'long', it doesn't check the length of the show it just checks how
old it is.
