[mythtv-users] Help! Encoder state from status XML?

Thanks! I think that answers my questions. So to confirm:

-1 = Error state
0 = idle / none state
1 = LiveTV
2 = Watching PreRecorded
3 = Watching Recording
4 = Recording

To my way of thinking, an encoder should never be in state 2 and 3, as these 
state definitions are used in other contexts as well.
