That was it (assuming you haven't specified any options in the
"mythfilldatabase Arguments" setting in mythfrontend settings), and
everything looks good. So, now, can you go (through mythfrontend) into
the "Previously Recorded" page and find the shows that were supposed to
be recorded (you should be able to sort it differently by hitting a key
like 1 or 2 or ... whatever it says at the top of the page). When you
scroll over the episode it should say why it didn't record. If the
episodes are not listed in that page, that's important, too.
Oh, and please make sure to check this relatively quickly--the data I
need is removed after 7 days.
