when recording a program with a tailtime of eg. 5 minutes there is often a pid change when the show actually ends, which causes the recording to stop and then restart again for a few minutes. And when using a script that automatically processes recordings after they are done this causes the post-process script run twice.

Noad solves this by dropping a noad.pid file in the recording folder for any noad that is currently processing this recording. This also catches re-runs of the pre-recording command.

For post-recording, I would suggest to run any command in background and sleep for one minute, then check if the recording was restarted.

For a restart check, put a 'currently recording' marker file into the folder on pre-recording and remove it on post-recording. Or keep an eye on date and time of the index.vdr file.
