Recording live TV only records from time of button press
As a long Time Warner Cable customer, I've gotten used to how their DVR boxes work (and am very glad to be off of them now). One very common thing I would do is start watching a show, and mid way through it decide I want to record it and watch it later. The nice thing was that the recording would contain everything I had watched up to that point plus the remainder of the show. Well... whenever I do the same thing in media center, I notice that the recording starts at the point of where I pressed the record button as opposed to from the start of when I started watching. Is this a limitation of Media Center or is something not set up correctly on my end?

Sorry... that's unfortunately the way WMC's recording function works. You will not get the accumulated "watched" buffer (up to the standard maximum 30-minutes live/pause buffer) written out to the WTV file if you decide to push REC after having watched a portion of the show that's been accumulated in the buffer.
It just is not the same as how a real DVR (e.g. the Motorola boxes from TWC/LA) works.
Yes, you can pause, rewind, etc., while you're watching... up to that 30-minute limit. But if you push REC then the WTV file starts right then.
