If the channel change (restart buffer) is after the beginning
of the show, "point i started watching" is simply using the
whole buffer. It's "from start of program" if the buffer
started before the the program that is the tricker porblem.
You'd have to find that point in the buffer and rewrite the
file starting from that point.

Not in 0.7 but in CVS the current recording appears in red
in the "Watch a Recording" and "Delete Recordings" lists.
If you choose to delete ("d") it will stop recording and
delete the file. There could be a feature to stop recording
and keep the recorded portion but there are losts of little
extras like this that haven't been implemented yet.
