Hi Bill,

Thanks. I know I can find them there. The issue was around being able
to rewind into a previous show within mythtv. It used to work and now
no longer does. Is this a change in functionality or a change in
setting that I can adjust?

My wife came across the issue when she wanted to rewind part of a live
show to hear something that was said (it was right near the end of the
show) but could not because mythtv had decided (based on the guide)
that 10 seconds ago was a previous recording.
