In the meantime I'd like to (optionally) play a sound that indicates the HD
is causing a UI delay. This would help remote listening when you can't see
the HD icon and wondering why nothing is happening. The HD icon also should
flash to grab your attention.
I'll look at all of that eventually unless someone else wants a go?
