Generally, yes. But I have had 2 instances over the last 1.5 years
where the frontend was powered off while in LiveTV, and the next day I
go to look at mythweb to see the list of upcoming recordings, and it
lists some 1 hour program from the day before as currently recording.
The last time it happened, the reason I noticed was that 2 of my
programs didn't record. When I looked at mythweb, it showed that there
were 3 of those programs from the previous day listed as "currently
recording". It so happens that I have 3 analog tuners, and the
programs that didn't get recorded were on analog channels. Apparently
it thought all 3 tuners were busy.
