If you are running VDR with --log=3 you will get entries like this in
the log:

Oct 16 22:45:00 vdr2 vdr: [5458] switching device 2 to channel 3
Oct 16 22:45:00 vdr2 vdr: [5458] timer 2 (3 2245-0045 'Comedy~TV total') start

This shows you which device was used for the recording.

No need to, just look it up in the log.
