[mythtv] Failed recording marked recorded anyway

DISCLAIMER:  I am running SVN from just before the LiveTV overhaul 
(revision 7569), but I've been keeping up on the -dev and -commits list 
and haven't seen anything addressing this.  Please beat me with a wet 
noodle if this has actually been fixed.


OK, so in fiddling with my system recently I apparently screwed up my 
second tuner device, so everything that's been scheduled to record on 
that card has silently failed.  Worse, though... even though the 
recordings failed, they were still inserted into the 'oldrecorded' 
table, so later showings didn't get recorded.

Here are some relevant entries from my logfile (the stuff about not 
finding the input are because I screwed up my second tuner):

You can see that it tried to start a recording on Channel 4, failed, 
then (since it thought a tuner had freed up), it tried to record a 
program that had previously been conflicted on Channel 68, and failed 
that one as well.  Yet, both programs now have entries in the 
'oldrecorded' table, so later showings of either program get skipped as 
duplicates.  Bad!
