Default Singapore F1 1st Practice - strange problem with recording

Surprised it didn't pick up and record the rest when the power came back
on, though.


If it's anything like Topfield PVRs (in their native state, can't speak
for MyStuff additions), then it considers the job is sufficiently "done"
once it starts recording.

If something crashes the box, the recording is truncated/trashed at the
point of crash/power loss, and it sees no need to do further work.

Indeed, once a timer turns into an "active recording" slot, it's *gone*
from the list of timers, so it wouldn't know to continue
