Sure, for some form of delayed notification.  That also assumes I can
predict what "something_bad|something_else_bad" would need to be to
handle all cases.

I really think simply having an event would be much easier and much more
flexible in terms of allowing the user to decide what he/she wants to do
when a recording does fail.  Of course, conflicts are the most obvious
reason for failure, but others could be more subtle.

Of course, details of what failed would need to be included, such as
Title, Sub-title, date/time, channel perhaps, etc.
