To stop a recording, go into manage recordings and highlight the 
recording and choose delete.  Also when you delete from manage 
recordings you can choose delete or delete and let re-record.  If you 
just choose delete it is in the database as recorded, if you choose to 
delete and re-record it will try to re-record it as long as the 
recording rule is still in effect.
