     I have a similar problem as experienced in this thread.  I noticed
in a my mythfrontend.log the following error message:

DB Error (loadByProgram):
Query was:
SELECT recordid FROM record LEFT JOIN channel ON (record.chanid =
channel.chanid ) WHERE record.title = "" AND ((record.type = 4 OR
record.type = 6) OR ((record.chanid = 2003-11-20T20:00:00  OR (callsign
IS NOT NULL AND callsign <> '' AND callsign = '0')) AND ((record.type =
3) OR (((TIME_TO_SEC(record.starttime) = TIME_TO_SEC('')) AND
TIME_TO_SEC(record.endtime) = TIME_TO_SEC(''))) AND ((record.type = 2) 
    OR ((DAYOFWEEK(record.startdate) = DAYOFWEEK('') AND ((record.type
= 5)        OR ((TO_DAYS(record.startdate) = TO_DAYS('')) AND
(TO_DAYS(record.enddate) = TO_DAYS('')) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ));
Driver error was [2/1064]:
QMYSQL3: Unable to execute query
Database error was:
You have an error in your SQL syntax.  Check the manual that
corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use
near ':00:00 OR (callsign IS NOT NULL AND callsign <> '' AND callsig

     The heart of the problem seems to be at "record.chanid =
2003-11-20T20:00:00" where record.chanid is being compared with a date.
 I looked around briefly for this bug, but it will need deeper
inspection.  Does anyone have a quick answer to this one?

Okay, I solved it -- somehow, my 'record' table had an entry with a
of '2' (kTimeslotRecord), but the start/end times were 00:00:00. The
class never seemed to recover, which threw off everything that
followed, and explains why I was getting some good entries (the list is
'ORDER BY title ASC') -- the bad entry was "Enterprise", so I got good
results for any titles beginning with A-Em.

I deleted the offending entry and all is right with the world.

I still may take a look at the code, though... the master scheduler was
chugging along quite nicely in spite of the bad entry, so I'd think the
'Recording Priorities' screen should be able to handle the situation
gracefully as well.
