The separate single LiveTV buffer (which could be located elsewhere than
the recording directory) was taken out in order to implement the far
more useful (IMO) feature of being able to save an entire LiveTV program
after you've started (or even finished) watching it.  In order to
implement this in a clean and consistent manner, LiveTV is now treated
pretty much the same as a scheduled recording, hence is placed in the
same directory.
