It looks like there is some problem with the stream we are not recovering
from. I'll look at your log...

These should be auto-expired in the current SVN. There was a time when
this wasn't happening and those old recordings may have to be manually
deleted, although I think they will be deleted once they are 7 days old.

The ticket unfortunately confused a display problem and expected
behaviour when recording from a DTV card. The display bug has
been fixed in SVN and the dummy recordings are expired within a
few minutes after we are no longer recording or watching it.
