Although not perfect because sometimes HD-PVR hangs and the following is not deleted, but this should give you a start:

For every current recording there is the following xml created in your recording folder:

MLB Baseball-(San Francisco Giants at San Diego Padres)

In theory if there are no "*.inprogress.xml"s then BTV is not recording,

CA-FX-8120 AMD FX-8120 Bulldozer 3.1GHz (Eight Core) AM3+ 8MB
8GB PC14900/1866MHz
WINDOWS 7 Ultimate 64 bit
BTV V4.9.3.6535
2x HDHR Prime
BTVLink/BM on two ACER R1600
UPNP/media server: ReadyNAS Ultra 4 Plus

Re: Hauppauge HD-PVR support

Thanks I will give that a try. I'm hoping that since BTV and my HDPVR always work fine after I power the HDPVR off/on after it hangs that if I toggle the HDPVR disabled then enabled in device manager (when not in use) it will work the same way. Hopefully the problem with the drivers has something to do with USB and will be cleared when the device gets re"connected". I never in all the years using my HDPVR with BTV had it hang during live TV or in the middle of a recording. It was always at the beginning when the HDPVR was activated. Will let you know if this works.
