I just played  parts of a PBS recording that happened last night.  The 
progress bar looked normal to me. I did find it odd that the recording 
time was 59:57 just like yours.  I expected 60 minutes, but I never paid 
that much attention to it before.

I also checked another OTA network recording. The progress bars looks as 
I'd expect. I normally only notice the progress bar when I pause for a 
phone call or time to get another beer. On the Shield TV I see nothing 
out of the ordinary. I'm on V30 backend and Shield frontend 983.
