I have opened a ticket for this (1153) , but it just struck me that  
it maybe related to the allocated disk space for livetv. i.e. an  
issue with the auto deleting of recorded livetv programs? I know that  
does not place any physical constraints on the disk, but its a  
theory. I have set my auto deleting to 1 day for live tv now instead  
of the default 7 days, and on first inspection it seem to be able to  
view LIveTV again without any problems, but only time will tell if  
thats a coincidence I guess.

Does that sound like a plausible cause of the problem?

I can't find where I setup the amount of disk space available to  
LiveTV now (had a skim through various setup menus). I recall that I  
set it a bit higher than the default, maybe 10G rings bell but it may  
have been 20.
