The History-plugin I posted to this thread remembers user defined number 
of replayed recordings so it probably easier than searching through the 
recording list for partially watched recordings. Replaying can be easily 
started from the list. The plugin also handles removed recordings 

The plugin also stores history of replayed files using xineliboutput's 
Media Player. Replay of these can also be started from the plugin menu.
