I didn't say it was either flawless or an ideal approach, but there are
always methods by which to deal with such failure. (e.g. the 'remote'
plugin can listen on a TCP port and give you text OSD via telnet)

IMO, the recordings should always happen on the server. The
xbmc-modified streamdev is now able to playback recordings over its own


The 'clever stuff' is handling clashes of recordings / timers - some
kind of priority system e.g. parents timers override the kids ones.
