Does skip or jump back (from appropriately close to the program change) 
seek to the previous recording put you in the previous recording?  I 
/think/ it was decided that rewind shouldn't go beyond the current 
program and that users wanting to go back to the previous should skip or 
jump back.  I may be mis-remembering, though.
