maybe a generic "Recording In Progress ..." image for records *gasp* in 
progress ;) ... might be nice if you're scrolling through and saw one 
you considered watching, only to notice the image and realize it was 
still in the process of recording (i'm not in front of the box, so 
just 	quietly ignore me if there already is some sort of notification 
... i just recently finally got around to start working with the TV side 
of myth .. just been using it for a movie / dvd / music frontend until now)
