> Some more data points:
- On the "Watch Recordings" screen the still-running recordings are shown
as white, i.e. not recording anymore. Only the continuously increasing file
size does show that the recording is still continuing.
- On the "Scheduled Recordings" screen the still-running recordings are
shown as green, indicating that they are being recorded.
- This all happens on my Fedora 31 backend, Qt version 5.13.2, with 3 DVB-C
tuners (/dev/dvb/adapter*/*) and one four-channel DVB-C HDHomeRun.
- This happens on both the DVB-C tuners and the HDHomeRun.
- My development system, Fedora 33, Qt version 5.15.2, with 1 DVB-C tuner,
does not have the problem.
Something that might help in testing this: when mythbackend is started with
"-v channel" there are lots of messages like this, repeated every 15
2021-02-10 09:46:29.817 I DVBChan(/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0): Found
visible channel ID 10004 for '4'
The message shown here indicates a current recording on tuner with cardid
1, DVB device adapter0/frontend0, and channel id plus channel number 4.
There is one such line for each active recording.
Somewhere on the list is the plan to do something about the amount of these
messages but for now it is quite handy.
