TiVo starts from where the program started. It can tell this simply by
the time and which program it senses that you are currently watching.

Again, TiVo kills the ring buffer and starts over when you change
channels. In fact it kills the ring buffer a little too easily if you ask
me. I've lost more than a few programs I was intending to record.
