Ok, if you got the input meters to move you are basically there, connect the 
input strip to the designated track (with the [oR] button on the input strip) 
and record enable the track. Now the meter should move on the track also, 
recording should now work.

Indeed. This is definitely one of the differences between commercial and 
volunteer open source software. Some things, often related to polish, just 
don't get enough attention...

Double click on the name.

It's not enabled by default, don't know if the planet build enables it, 
probably not. I would not call it production status, more to come in this
