Daniel - thanks for your response.

A-ha.... but, what's the record button? Actually, I've since found out that it's 
'R'. One of my problems though, was that some of the command keys were not 
working (up/down at least), and I didn't know if 'R' does anything. I still 
don't know on my setup :-(

It would be nice to have some feedback on screen when it's recording, so you 
know that it is! Maybe a red blob in the corner or flashing 'Rec' a la 
camcorder, or more informatively 'Rec <chan>' - or even 'Rec <progname>' when 
it's recording in the background.
