It also raises several questions:

- When should such a recording be deleted?
  If it gets deleted as soon as replay is stopped, you'll be very surprised
  when you (or your kids ;-) inadvertently press Stop, and you can't resume
  replay.
  If it gets deleted after a certain timeout, you'll probably turn this off
  once you lost such a recording for the first time, because something
  came up that kept you from finishing viewing it in time.

- How to handle such a recording if it's not in the list of recordings?
  Maybe you find the recording to be so interesting that you want to
  keep it - no chance if it doesn't appear in the list.

I'd prefer to keep things simple...
