> So, my question is this: is there a way to "test" Mythtv from a cron job to determine if there are active recordings in process? I thought I might be able to query the database? But, in looking at mythtv's tables, it is not obvious to me what table/field I would issue the test against? Or, maybe there is already a "hook" built-in to mythtv that I could use? Any suggestions are welcome. Thanks.
# wget --quiet -O - http://127.0.0.1:6544 | grep Encoder
Encoder 8 is local on jmd1 and is not recording.<br />
