If a machine crashes in the middle of a recording, is the recording
still vali, i.e. can it still be played? If so, what if, at the
beginning of the recording there is a database entry that says it
started to record. Then, at the end of the recording another entry is
made that it was finished. That way you'd have the option of viewing
"partials." Even if the files aren't viewable, you at least have a
listing of failed tapings that can be deleted or, possibly,
automatically rescheduled (it'd be kind of cool if MythTV was always on
the lookout for a specific show - if episode specific information was
available - that was erroneously taped)
