Probably the best way to handle this.  It might be difficult to ensure fast 
transitions between files during recording with the pvr-x50s, as they'd need 
to be re-initialized to start a new file properly, and that's not 
instantaneous.  It'd certainly simplify the RingBuffer class logic a lot, 
though, as there'd no longer be a need to wrap.  Local 'livetv' could just do 
direct file access then, too..
