As simple as it sounds.

I am requesting that the currently selected input be displayed on it's own line in the While Recording Screen.

Currently the encoding/bitrate/channel/samplrate are all displayed in the statusbar. But not the input source.

Displaying the input source will reduce the chances of recording the wrong input by mistake.

This task depends upon

I'd also like to add that the small size of the remote screen is not as relevant as one may think. Most remotes (maybe all supported remotes) induce noise into the audio recorded via mic and line input. Therefor the number of remotes used during recording would be very small. (H1x0 with optical input?) If RLCD compatibility needs to be maintained I have an idea for an elegant solution for that but I believe that to be a separate feature request.

After building some SIMs it seems that the only screens where this is an issue is actually on the remote LCDs. (RLCDs)
Since the remote LCD already need to scroll (when selecting line input) in the WRS to display the AGC lines I say we allow proper scrolling of the entire lower half of the screen (below the peakmeters) on the remote LCDs and stop believing that we can fit all relevant WRS info on the RLCDs at once. It probably cannot be done in an elegant manner anyways.
