This machine is old and not that fast. I'm thinking maybe my ffmpeg that 
is reading from the web site is behind and buffered and maybe mythtv 
sees that the show ends and shuts everything down and ffmpeg is killed. 
Just guessing. Let me play around with it and see what I can do. If I 
can find out why it is losing the end of the shows your solution works
