Comment(by devel at mrwire.co.uk):

 Replying to [ticket:3463 anonymous]:
 > mythshutdown --status and --check both return 0 when the system is
 watching live tv and not recording any scheduled programs.  This causes
 mythshutdown -x (safe shutdown) to happily shut down the system in the
 middle of watching live tv, which I can't imagine is intentional.

 Actually it is intentional.  The reason I wrote the shutdown code was so I
 could call it from a script and assign it to (eg.) a shutdown button on my
 remote and the pc power button.  I don't particularly want to have to exit
 livetv every time I want to shutdown.
 What you probably want to do here is extend --check so that it optionally
 includes a livetv check, but not by default.
