    Hello guys,



    I'd like bring up an idea which is actually not really new as you can see here for example:
    https://forum.team-mediaportal.com/threads/step-2-add-already-watched-ts-buffer-to-recording.81937/

    The idea is to add the timeshift buffer to a recording when you decide to record the program when
    it has already begun. E.g. when you watch a show which starts at 8 o'clock and decide to record this program
    at quarter past eight the recorded file won't have the first 15 minutes.
    This is were my idea comes into play.
    In my scenario above the recorded file would then contain the first 15 minutes (from timeshift buffer)
    plus the rest of the show since pressing the record button.

    Again, this is not new but it seemed to me that there are many peolpe who like this and maybe
    in this time of the emerging mp2 someone can implement that... (not necessarily only into mp2 ;) )
