Hi Chris,

This functionality was in mythtv previously and worked well for those
(like my wife) that likes livetv. You actually used to be able to skip
back through the entire livetv buffer (in my case up to 24 hours).
Normally it is not an issue at all as yes you are right, rewinding
into a previous show is kind of not used that often. However, when the
station does not get the timing right for the end of the show, for
whatever reason, it can be quite annoying.
