Hi Scott,

This appear to be related to my recent set of commits to use the
std::chrono data type, but I am unable to replicate the problem on my
system. There is another email thread going on the mythtv-dev mailing
list about this problem.

Can you tell me what version of Ubuntu you are using and what version
of Qt its running? I have a HDHR3-CC like you, along with a couple of
other HDHR boxes for testing.

Is it all recordings that run too long, or just specific recordings?
