In settings:

Generate preview image from a bookmark if possible
If enabled, MythTV will ignore the above time offset, and use the 
bookmark inside the recording as the offset for creating a thumbnail 
image. As with the above, MythTV will honour cutlists and increase this 
offset if necessary.

Then press Space or Enter to set a bookmark.  Just make sure you don't 
reset the bookmark (i.e. when exiting the recording).
