That's a better approach.  I took the easy way and just modified what 
was already there.  :)

In the end of recording prompt, you only get 3 options:

End Of Recording
 - Delete it, but allow it to re-record
 - Delete it
 - Save it so I can watch it again

And, I just fixed the bug that allowed you to dismiss it with Escape and 
try to resume playback (it now actually exits playback when you dismiss 
the dialog).

If you're saying you get the exit dialog:

You are exiting <title>
 - Save this position and go to the menu
 - Do not save, just exit to the menu
 - Delete this recording
 - Keep watching

at the end of the recording, that may be another bug (or may actually be 
fixed by the IsNearEnd() fix I put in yesterday in [21937] ).
