I have noticed this also.  I do not use 600 I use a lower number but
noticed the same delay in Watch Recordings.

You could add to the ticketing system so the problem is not forgotten
http://svn.mythtv.org/trac/newticket but I guess some people may class
it as a bug others may class it as a feature and it is working as it
was designed.

Hopefully someone with the skills/time to fix will take up the
challenge if it annoys them also :)
