I did reboot, and it made no difference, I am assuming that some how it
tied the input to the Schedules - which would be a shame as I did not
specify an input (i.e. most are set to any).
I've now deleted all "Schedules".
Next I think I have to force an EPG for all tuners (sources) or wait
till that happens again.
Actually it was a good thing that I had to restore the entire database
setup because all previous records lost the original program meta data -
channel number and name, that was replaced with #1234#, so this time
I've kept the original video sources and created new ones allowing the
existing recordings to show the correct meta data.
Problem is, I think the old EPG data is still being used, so I have to
figure out how to force a EPG rescan :(
