Hi Chris,

Well - we have the same error:

 > 2007-03-06 19:56:33.024 MythSocket(2aaab0202850:20): readStringList:
 > Error, timeout (quick).

Compared to a successful live TV:

   2007-03-07 10:06:03.040 write -> 14 72      QUERY_RECORDER 
1[]:[]SPAWN_LIVETV[]:[]live-msi-2007-03-07T10:06:03[]:[]0
   2007-03-07 10:06:05.805 MythSocket(88c9758:10): socket is readable
   2007-03-07 10:06:05.806 MythSocket(88c9758:10): cb->readyRead()
   2007-03-07 10:06:05.806 read  <- 10 53 
BACKEND_MESSAGE[]:[]QUERY_NEXT_LIVETV_DIR 1[]:[]empty

Does anybody know why the "Error, timeout (quick)" happens?

Cheers, Martin
