Yes. We are not alone... I'm sure. It did this to me a couple of times,
just about midnight last night. That was in Manual Recording too. And ...
Upcoming was empty.
By messing around in the EPG I thought that I had actually scheduled a
recording but although it was reported by the backend as being done, no
recording actually existed.. I -think- that that was the /dev/videox entry
problem...although it could have been trying to record using a phantom
card... since at one point last night the system thought it had 5
tuners...(instead of a PVR500 and pcHDTV only).
A speaking of usability factors, including the 'name the card' patch
discussed here, why cannot we explicitly set the tuner we want to use, or
at least see which tuner will be used...
I'm still not sure which order is actually used... 0 to 3,4,5 or 5 to
2,1,0... and which *is* zero?
