None of the outputs from these commands, however, specifically
indicates whether there are any recordings occurring, which is what
the question was about. Examining the output from localhost:6544, as
discussed elsewhere in this thread and in the archives, is the only
way I know of. I agree that adding this ability to mythshutdown would
be extremely useful.
