Not via menu/red. (menu/red is still a normal instant recording)

But there a possibilies to record this "intersting scene".

1. You can go into ReplayMode, there you can cut something out of the
LiveBuffer (like normal cutting of a recording: 0 to set marks and 2 to
start cutting)

2. You can create a new time and set there LiveBuffer to yes, then parts
of the timer, which are in the LiveBuffer, will be added to the

3. If you want a instant-recording then you can set a cutting-mark like
in 1. but instead of pressing 2 you can press 1. Then the marked part of
the livebuffer will be copied and a normal instant record will continue.
