But isn't that just private information? I don't see any way to get that 
information except reading the info-File directly.
Could you please add a function to derive this information as I think 
this could be a nice feature in a skin?
Though there would be a little problem, if the channel on whicht the 
recording was made, has changed one of the significant pids or isn't 
available (delted) anymore. But that wouldn't be such a big problem IMHO.
