Mythweb says I'm recording, and I do have two MPGs being recorded as I
watch 2 hockey games. Come to think of it they'd have to be recorded,
because Myth doesn't do anything straight-through from the tuner to
video - the whole PVR model with disk as an intermediary.
Actually I don't have a TV and haven't for years. I figured I could skip
the whole TV thing by doing a PVR all on one machine.
