Comment (by adrian.wilkins at spamoff.gmail.com):

 Since my main user is my 2 year old daughter, and her gran is ...
 technically stunted ...  my new workaround for this is a cron job that

 USE mythconverg;
 UPDATE cardinput SET startchan = 3;

 .. periodically ; since channel 3 (ITV1) is a channel that transmits 24/7,
 this ceases to be a problem.

 I think the regression of this fault coincided with WatchTV starting to
 consume files from local disk instead of streaming from the backend. The
 log seems to bear this out as it shows signs that the file the frontend is
 trying to open is absent.

 As a suggestion for a fix that would function even in the absence of a
 more technically correct fix (like streaming the output of the
 DummyRecorder to the file in the absense of a stream), might I suggest the
 addition of a "fallbackchannel" column which identifies a channel that a
 given tuner can depend upon in this event?
