    V5 Tray icon is not green although NPVR server is working and serving clients

    Hi, a small issue...

    NPVR Server Tray icon is red while NPVR server is active and serving clients. I would expect it to be green...
    See screenshot.

    It is red when NextPVR is "recording" ... Live TV is a special type of recording where the recording to a file and the viewing of the file content happens at the same time.

    I suspect that the tray icon does not change colour when you watch a show that was recorded earlier and that has finished recording.

    When tuner is in use, it'll go red.

    Thanks for the clarification Sub. So three state color right?

    Green = Available
    Red = In Use
    Gray = Not Running

    Correct.

    Green = "not in use"
    Red = "in use"
    Gray = "NextPVRServer not running"

    Many thanks for the clarification.
    Just an idea when talking about multi-state color reporting...
    How about to use a range of colors between Green and red depending on percent of tuners recording VS available?
    So a dual tuner with one of the two recording could show orange instead of red...
