In SVN head there is a timeout, something like 4 or 8 hours. But
you can also cancel the recording by changing your group view in
the recordings screen to include the LiveTV recordings, and then
canceling or deleting the recording.

As for the single user paradigm, one of the Summer of Code projects
is intended to address that.
