The OP is using the setting:
Action on playback exit:
- Just exit
- Save position and exit
- Always prompt (excluding Live TV)
- Always prompt (including Live TV)
- Prompt for Live TV only
If set to prompt, a menu will be displayed when you exit playback mode.
The options available will allow you to save your position, delete the
recording, or continue watching.
Set to "Save position and exit." But, following on to your thought,
perhaps the OP should be using "Always prompt (<either>)".
