Using dabdig

Im trying to set up a small command line app with progdvb. I have digiguide for pc and this would allow me to right click and set the recordings from there. However it is not recording. Does anyone else use this setup or know of any other way to set recordings from digiguide?

Scratch most of that... My problem now is when the recording starts , the channel i was on remains open and attempts to stay open in the bottom corner of the screen in a little box. how can i disable this?
