I don't know what to say about the failed recording issue, but for the
other issue, if you compile your myth from source, I've written a
patch that allows that feature to be restored. You'll need to patch
the code and recompile, and then you'll need to manually make a small
tweak to whatever theme you use. You can get the patch for 0.24 from
