another update to this problem, it seems now to be a problem with MythTV and my 2nd tuner.
I've tested DVB card using Mplayer
eg mplayer -msglevel all=6 dvb://2@"WIN TV Canberra"
and it plays fine, but when I set mythtv to prefer this tuner it just refuses to record,
I've been using this card for the last 2 years.
Where would I be getting errors in this playback device. ie what would cause this DVB-T
card now to fail?
