This makes no sense to me. I'm about a month behind on my tv already,
and there's typically reruns a few hours later (4 hours offset or so)
or later the week/weekend. By the time I'd notice something is
corrupt, it's out of frequent play mode and onto a few weeks/months
until I can re-catch it.

So giving me a partial recording is way worse then just missing it imho
