I don't want to add yet another config option, either we let the power<br>button work directly while playback, or we ask for confirmation on<br>playback. Whatever the majority wants.<br></blockquote></div><br>Recording is one thing but I've never seen a VCR, DVD player, DVR, etc. that asks you to confirm if you hit the power button during playback. People don't usually hit a power button on accident, they hit it expecting that the device shut off. If I hit the power button on my dvd player while I'm watching a movie, I don't have to confirm anything. I hit the button and go on my way without waiting around to see what happens. This is by far the most common behavior of any device with a power button. I'm honestly surprised forcing conditions on the power button is even a consideration! The idea was bad from the start (sorry Rolf Ahrenberg).
