Ya ever noticed how many ...hundreds  of people on these lists
try their luck at replying with 'expert' advice and don't even
try the guesses that they are suggesting? A former co-worker
made a good case for the value of credibility and I try to
verify simple things before I put my foot in my mouth (but it
doesn't always work out that way =).

Before I replied, I tried a couple live to record transitions
to verify what would happen. Had I not done so, I'd confidently
say that choosing to continue would mark the scheduled show as
"c", rsCancelled. However, in practice it actually results in

The next unexpected thing that happened is that I had other
inputs for that source. When I exited the live session a few
minutes later, the aborted show found a lower numbered input
that was available and started to record on the other card, 2,
at the time that I exited the live session on card 4.
