A patch for this sort of functionality will be coming next week, hopefully.
ATM we have code that, when a recording is in progress, will give you
information on the recording (name, time, description, and time until
finished) and provide you with options for watching the current recording,
stoping the current recording and watching live TV, and going back to the
main menu.   We've just got to ensure it works with multiple tuners (there
may be some more work in that :|  ) and apply it to the current CVS.
