In any normal recording currently you would not realize that there
is missing anything (except(maybe): music).

So a "no signal" combined with "Signal information" would be helpful.
If you want to cut it "no adds" will be able to find these "breaks".
Currently "no adds" will not detect the interruptions! No chance!

Once uppon a time i wondered why some days some recordings
were broken resp. where not done.

After weeks i realized that this happen only when an recording
using the DVB-T card. That was caused because someone removed the
terristic anntenna: "We ara all using sat" ;-)

If the recordings would consist of "no stream" and "zero signal level"
or massbe BER the problem would have been obious.
