Actually, I'm working on a set for backend and frontend
option #2. I hadn't thought about making each backend
update a status table 'till you mentioned it.
Probably a week or less before I post something.
>> Relies on db consistency
The main reason I didn't like this one is that if mythbackend crashes
on my system (usually because I updated the myth.so, so user=id10t),
there would be several shows that are "currently recording" right now.
Of course the tuner is only working on 1, but the database doesn't know
