OK, if it works with your patch them I'm happy and can follow the logic in
the coded.  It was the "applied unconditionally" wording that was the main
reason I wanted to reply since it isn't 'unconditional', it's assumed but
can be overridden.

I see the new code in TVR::StartRecording() that stops if we're already

Anyway, glad it's fixed, I need to remember to update my boxes when I
get home tonight.  I've missed the first couple minutes of a few shows
because of a 2-minute postroll and back-to-back recordings but never knew
why until Bruce posted the bug report and I looked at my backend logs.

Thanks for explaining it.
