You would find out more accurately what the back end thinks it's doing if you
look at the back end log. That should tell you when (it thought) the recording
started and stopped, which file (it thought) it wrote to, which tuner it used,
etc. Just using mythweb to ascertain status may not tell you much of the truth.
