    Is there any plugin that can monitor incoming MPEG streams from tuners that are being used for scheduled recordings and sound an alarm if those streams suddenly outright stop or severely drop in quality?

    In other words, is there something that can get my computer to literally scream at me when recordings start to fail?

    If not, how would I go about creating a plugin to do that?

    I ask because my SiliconDust HDHomeRun tuners have been failing more and more often these days and I want to be able to know as soon as possible when one of them fails so that I can hard restart it and minimize my losses in recordings.

    Well, for creating TVServer plugin you need to know c# but I'm not sure if signal level is exposed to public methods.
    But what about investigating failing problems instead?
