Well, even an mp3, divx or vob must have been "recorded" at some time ;-)

The function's name is "Replaying()", which is what you usually do with
"recordings". Even though this was primarily designed to inform plugins
that VDR is replaying one of its recordings, the "Name" and "FileName"
semantics were defined in a more general way, so that any kind of files
may be reported this way.
