When you are using LiveTV, you are recording straight to disk. If you
change channels, or a new show comes on as per the guide data, MythTV
switches to a new file, and records that to disk as well. These files
are kept around for around a day, or until you need to free up space on
your hard drive for more recordings, which ever comes first. When you
hit the 'record' button, MythTV marks that file as a scheduled
recording, and will not delete it with the rest of the LiveTV session.
The behavior you are claiming is probably due to MythTV setting a
bookmark at the point you hit record, so each subsequent playback is
starting at that point. Just remove the bookmark, and start playback
from the beginning of the file.

MythTV 0.24 is a stable release and v0.24-210-g40fc454 is from the
stable release branch. There is nothing developmental about anything
