I've tried this and noticed that it also calls RTJPEG files "data"
too. Bit of a pain that as I want to compare RTJPEG files vs MPEG4
files. It's odd that it seems to be hard to find out what format a
recording is in.

Also, re the other poster's "U" command, this has a different function
on my box. Whil playing a recording it speeds it up, or when viewing
recording listings it shows the program listing description.
