The patch does following:
- it always records the channel you are watching, when you switch
channel a new recording starts and the old will be deleted
- so you are able to repeat a scene if for example you didn't understand
- or when you are watching a film, and you decide during the film, that
you want to record it, you can do so, if the beginning is in the
livebuffer (new timer -> LiveBuffer: yes)
- you can turn on/off this functionality in menu -> setup ->
recording -> LiveBuffer
  there you can also set the size for the livebuffer (in MB)

But I want to WARN you:
This patch is not yet really stable! (Of course, it would nice if some
of you test it and report bugs)
