Hi Jan,

I do not know if you are aware of it but It is now possible to completely
disable the "save last played position",
See https://github.com/MythTV/mythtv/issues/543
This is not exactly how it was in version 31 but it comes close.
Note this was not in the initial version 32 release so you might need to
use a ppa or build from source to get the latest version.
