The good news:

After 80 attempts I have been unable to produce the
     "Recording will not commence until a PMT is set."

I tried 60 times with a single record set, and only my HD-3000 cards enabled.
I tried another 7 times with two recordings.
I re-enabled my HDHR, added a third recording and tried another 21 times.

The bad news:

While testing with three recordings set, I started also checking to
make sure the files actually had something in them.  I discovered that
about 1/4 of the time, one of the three recording was not being
created!  No file was created at all.

In each of these cases, it was always the same show/channel which was missing:
'Access Hollywood' on channel 4-1, and always on tuner number 4.

This problem could be completely unrelated to Ticket #3031.  It might
have to do with my restarting the backend over-and-over-and-over.

Time for my system to actually record some real shows, so I will not
be able to do some more testing until much later.

I am attaching three logs.  Two are examples of the failure to create
the file, and one is an example of success.  Like I said, look for
tuner 4, channel 4-1, 'Access Hollywood' in each of the logs.  Channel
4-1 shows up as files beging with "1026_".
