Question "Recording" in progress indicator?

Is there a setting or Plugin to add a "Recording in progress" indicator to SageTV?

I am used to "Windows Media Center", which put a red dot in the "tray" while a recording is in progress. But when SageTV is recording a scheduled program, there is nothing visible anywhere to indicate that a recording in in progress.

It would be great to have such a feature.

I use Gemstone and the red dot you mention shows in the top bar when in the TV menu (also, separately in the EPG). In addition, I installed the "Windows Sidebar/Desktop Gadget Support by CNCB" plugin. This handy tool lists not only what is currently being recorded but what is "on tap" as well as "free disk space."

Thanks for the reply.

I installed the "Windows Sidebar/Desktop Gadget", but there are 5 plugins c "Gemstone". I installed one of them but didn't get a recording dot when I clicked the Record button, so I'll try the others.

Thanks.

Thanks for the reply.

I was able to install the "Windows Sidebar Gadget" (I think. I don't see anything related to it), but Gemstone refuses to install and I'm not sure why.
