Right now I'm having a problem trying to walk through a recording playback when the overlap has to be dynamically allocated on the first 'step.'  That-is we have between 0 and 12 ms of launch time.  So the Percent overlap after the first packet is dumped from digital demod and new data is pulled in from the recording is not known.  Reading the Player position is returning a weird number, seems like it might be time in samples? (while read back of Search Length is returned in seconds):

Then I do some math I get very bad %overlap!

On screen when I pull up the player window, position is reported as 723.70900324994 ms
