Actually, for all of my HD-PVR recordings, your patch has real value
on top of the IsNearEnd change.  Without the patch, playback stops
about 30 frames early (using the software decoder with a buffer size
of 32 frames).  For my ATSC recordings, the benefit is less clear,
probably because of the audio/video buffering mismatch.
