I would be interested in taking a look at your scripts. A recording
indicator would be a nice touch. I do coding on my myth box and sometime
will forget and reboot it while its recording so a visual reminder would be
nice. I see no reason to have to use two scripts so I expect I will recode
it into one script for simplicity sake. You are welcome to a copy once its
working. Perhaps that will fix your issue too. Please contact me at

Sounds like an interesting little project. I already have all the parts so
its going to be a zero cost project. My favorite kind :)
