I just downloaded the show and watched the last minute. It just ends.
Not so much as a pixel out of place. Also, my signal strength
consistently shows 99%.
I guess it is possible the station itself went off the air for a
moment. Let me assume that is what happened. That brings up a
Mythbackend thought it was recording the program as the logs show. It
looks from mysql log that the file just quit growing at the 1+hr mark
and that it wasn't closed out until the 2 hour mark.
So, why didn't the show start recording again if it indeed did go off
the air for a second once it came back on. If I had turned the
computer off and back on, it would have started recording again. What
stopped it? Is there a way to set it to keep recording? What isn't
Is this a HDHR issue or a myth issue? If this is an HDHR issue, why
does anyone use them?
Maybe I can think up some experiments to try.
