Nothing in logs here either. Luckily, I haven't seen this problem after 
the first time. But it definitely occurred..

I have to share a bit of real life comedy / tragedy: I had just bragged 
a bit to my girlfriend that we are in no hurry to get home from shopping 
to see her Everwood, since Myth is recording it. I specifically 
mentioned that after some initial problems, it has been working lately 
very well and recorded everything during last weeks and months.

And then.. I checked MythWeb, just to be sure, through my mobile phone 
and realized that Everwood was NOT being recorded although the show was 
already going. I furiously re-enabled the recording many times, 
increased priority etc. but nothing helped (through my phone, while in 
grocery store) :)

At home I discovered what had happened. For some strange reason the 
episode was one that had already been sent couple of months ago so this 
did not cause any damage, to me or to my girlfriend ;)
