I have an issue with v 0.16.20040906-1 (cvs). I went to record a hd
program so I could test the display resolution switching code. I went to
Watch TV, then used the EPG to change to my PBS-DT channel. It showed
the program on the screen. I press 'R' to record then the screen went
blank. I pressed stop and proceeded to the Media Library then to Watch
Recordings. The listing showed the program I just selected to record as
currently recording. I pressed Select to start playback. It did not do
anything. I tried this a few times then ran mythfrontend with verbose
playback. When I went to play the program still showing as recording, it
did not do anything again.
The log showed myth://192.168.1.123:6543/3009....nuv could not be found.
I then logged into my backend and looked at the log. Here is what it showed:

It looks like the recording was aborted because of the signal strength.
The program was still marked as being recorded in the database or
whatever makes the frontend still think it was being recorded.
Part two of the problem was I could not get it to record again without
jumping through hoops. I moved the antenna and was able to watch it in
Live TV. I press R and the osd showed Recording ..... I went back to the
Media Library and it was not there. I went back to Live TV then to the
EPG and press I for the advanced recording screen. I changed it to Do
not record, then saved, then went back in and changed to Record. It
shows as a Single recording in the EPG but it was not being recorded. I
finally went to mythweb and looked in the scheduled and recording
schedules and did not find it. I went to the Listing and found the
program with green dotted lines around it. I clicked on it then checked
the Do Not Record checkbox and saved it. I then went back in and marked
it as Record then saved and it started recording.
