I can't tell anything from those log excerpts, the signal monitor is
started up and starts looking for tables. Then the log excerpt cuts off
before any reports of finding a PAT or PMT.

The signal monitoring should always work with unencrypted channels, but
may fail on encrypted channels if the decryption takes too long to take

If the desired program is never found in the PAT, the behaviour is to
wait until the recording should have ended before giving up. This is to
catch recordings in the UK where channels go on air just before the
first program of the evening starts.
