Video Output Hangs When Scheduled Recording Starts During Live TV

I have SVN 8064 and a PVR-250. If a scheduled recording begins while I'm watching live TV, the picture freezes. If I exit LiveTV and re-enter, it works. Also, if I exit LiveTV and go to Watch Recordings, it's shown as active and I can join it there.

1) It shouldn't freeze 2) Usually, if something is recording, I can't watch LiveTV because the tuner is in use, but must use Watch Recordings. This is kind of nice now, but I'm not sure it's intended.

Not sure what log options to use, but will supply whatever is needed.

I'm now using SVN 8103. When I submitted the above, this only happened when scheduled recordings start. Now in 8103, it also happens when live tv transitions from program to program.

(In [8268]) Fix the livetv->scheduled recording transition.

Daniel, please review the tv_rec changes - there was a nasty race between StartRecording? and StopLiveTV and I'm not sure if my fix is entirely correct. The kill ringbuffer command in StopLiveTV would run after everything in StartRecording? had and kill the newly created ringbuffer.

Closes #726.
