It would be very nice, if in the timeshift OSD the actual time would be shown, and the actual playing time.

I.e. if you pause at 20:15, this time should be shown in the OSD in the big letters, while the real actual time should go on on the right end of the progress bar.

    don't you think it is weird to have the time it was recorded in the progressbar?
    What kind of value would that have?

    Have you ever seen a vcr showing you the actual time it was recorded instead of a counter or timecounter ?

    I think it would be a helpful information for timeshift.
    I would like to know how much I am behind the live tv show.
    when skipping a commercial brake i get closer.

    if you really need it, i don´t know. but it is of more info then the playing time (goes for timeshift only, of course)

    I agree, knowing how much behind you are is valueble information, Windows MCE and GAM both have this system with one time @ your current viewing location and one time that is that acutal time right now.

    I have take´n some pictures from MythTV.
    It shows the time we are behind and how much the timeshift buffer is filled.

    Do not wonder about the layout. The screenshots are taken from two different skins.

    Here's another example of what it can look like, this one is from BeyondTV.

    Yepp, that´s what I meant. Of course not for recordings, but for timeshift. I really liked the way it was shown in GotTV. I don´t have a screenshot, but is was near the last picture above.

    i did not know these progs, but i like the myth tv best.

    it has got a clear message 0:08 behind.

    the other two, i needed a minute to figure out what they wanted to tell me.And still have to calculate how much i am behind.
