I'd use "print".

I'd also delete "currently"

Generally, most words that end in "ly" can be deleted and some "ly" add effect. "Currently" is repetitive in the example here.

Plus, I have a problem with "print... to the recorder"

If it prints, why is it called a 'recorder' and not a 'printer'?

"Print" can be to the screen, to a file, to a printer, or to another format or device.

Or is nothing actually being printed? Does the action *send* or *output* content to the recorder?

I think it depends on whether data or an image is being sent.
