Thanks. Shame there isn't just a property of the recording I can check, 
as matching log entries to recording entries can be hard, especially for 
old recordings. Looking in the recordings table, it looks like it would 
need extra columns to store the cardid (or whatever is required), but 
I'm no coder!
