    Description
    With the new TV recording "is watched" feature a recording is only set to watched
    if you really play the record to the very end of the recording.
    In my opinion this is not very useful
    because of the normally programmed spare time at the end of every recording which mostly contains senseless commercial spots.
    It would make much more sense to use a percentage limit, e.g. if the recording is watched 75% the watched state is set or incremented.

    Steps to Reproduce:
    Watch a TV recording not to the end

    I did not know that the settings from the video section could have any influence to the TV recordings...
    That did not make sense for me but i will try it, thanks!
