Thanks for the response. I did have a storage group defined for a
directory which no longer existed. I deleted that entry, so now only
one storage group exists with the 2 valid directories: /Media &
/Media2. I then restarted mythbackend. But, the behavior still
happens. I just recorded 2 small programs, then deleted them via
mythweb, but they showed up again when I refreshed mythweb 20 minutes
My setup is fairly simple.. only one backend, with 2 local media
drives, my frontend is accessing the recordings via myth protocol not
NFS, and mythweb is running directly on the backend.
The error in mythbackend is still the same:
2009-11-16 10:19:46.671 ERROR retrieving program info when trying to
delete program for chanid 1006 recorded at Mon Nov 16 09:21:00 2009.
Recording will NOT be deleted.

retrieve program info for chanid 1006 at Mon Nov 16 09:21:00 2009.
Program will NOT be deleted.
I verified that chanid 1006 exists in the DB.
