Assuming (couldn't tell for sure from your descriptions) you were 
watching the recording in progress (not watching LiveTV), you hit the 
key bound to JUMPPREV ("Jump to previously played recording"), which is 
unbound by default, or--more likely--PREVCHAN ("Switch to the previous 
channel"--OK, you probably knew what that one meant;), which is bound to 
'H' by default.  When watching a recording (not LiveTV), PREVCHAN is 
treated the same as JUMPPREV (since there are no previous channels in 
recording playback).
