I just had this happen to me.  One of my digital channels just added a
sub-channel.  The SIScan saw this and for some reason decided the
right thing to do, was to remove the primary channel from my database.
 I, therefore, did not get a couple of "record on this channel" shows

I have commented out those two lines and recompiled my backend. 
Hopefully this will keep that problem from happening to me again.

Thanks John Pullan.
