That's true. What I would really like to do is pause any upcoming tasks b y
the backend and pick a time between scheduled recordings. Then I would
restart it manually at that time. The problem is everry time I look to
attempt this, there is a job running or the box is recording.
So, perhaps the question I should have asked is:
Is there a way to tell the backend to not start any more tasks, without
killing those in progress? Will the backend complete jobs / tasks already
in progress if I simply stop the backend?
