My main recorder is a WinTV-quadHD on Computer A. On computer B I used to have a usb-HVR-955Q for live TV and incidental non-recurring recordings and it died. I can (and do if I am going to be away overnight or longer) dedicate one of the 4 tuners on the quad until I can get 955Q replaced. My MCEBuddy runs on Computer B as well as my main desktop computing activities.
If the dots showed up in the Pending Recording view, that would work for me. Right now they appear on the "what's New" and "Ready Recording" if you do the sqlite3 code above. Does the "First Run" tag ever turn off with the blue dots?
I could take some of the channels out of one of the quads removing the most offending channels that may record at a time that is not good for me.
I was hoping since the "First Run" tag was in the code already that it would be a simple skin adjustment to get the "new" to appear in the pending. I don't want to accidentally cancel a pending recording just because I got in a hurry.
