Are you recording now?
Are you going to start recording with the next N minutes?
Thinking forwards a little - this could also be used as the basis of a feature to test that MP is still alive. i.e. if the request timesout then an auto-reboot could be issued.... would require a process (app) that sleeps for N minutes, then pings MP, and if it's gone runs a user selected app/shell script.
