I run MythTV back-end on a server and the front-end on a separate small 
client in the living room.  I used the ideas from Jarod's HowTo to set 
up the client power button to power off via ACPI poweroff.  If I am 
watching live TV on the client and press the power button to shut down 
without going thru the menu system, it leaves the back-end continuing to 
record live TV.  It doesn't know the front-end has shut down.

Is there a way to modify the power button ACPI script or some other way 
to signal the back-end to stop recording?  Any suggestions will be
