I patched my installation to do exactly this behavior -- if you choose
live tv and it's recording something, it simply starts to playback
whatever is being recorded.  I never submitted it as an official patch
because Isaac was clear that he didn't like that behavior (email of
August 6, 2003).  I can send it to you if you like, though it's a pretty
trivial change.
