> Prevent playback to exit early should backend's writes be delayed
> Typical scenario is when using liveTV and being very close to real time TV: should the backend take more than 360ms between two writes, the reader would treat it as an EOF and abort the read.
> Whenever we open a file in write mode, we add it to a global dictionary. When reaching an EOF, we can then check if the file is going to be written to again

  Is this really true on a Combined BE/FE machine where the FE opens the file for reading directly, I can't see how it would know that the backend is still writing to it as m_fileswritten is private to the backend - Or am I missing something?

And can I just say that I'm really excited about how much attention livetv is receiving at the moment, it accounts for about 50% of my use case. I'm slowly bringing myself unto speed with the source tree but it's likely to be a very slow process, hopefully someday I will be in a position to contribute something worthwhile back.
