When you're watching a show, can you do an "instant replay" ?  i.e., press
the "back" button and rewind to see what just happened.

The first time through the guide seems to be slow with 0.12.   Once you've
gone through once, it's fast again.   I believe this was patched shortly
after 0.12 was released.    Also, make sure that you've enabled mysql query

It's easy to go the other way around.   I never use the "plain" epg, but
rather go to live tv and then use the EPG from there (with live TV preview)
