Cool, I created a new patch based on this test patch.
If you could test that, and it checks out, I'll apply it.

I think this might be due to the testing, unless you give the recording
a little time the buffers may never flush to disk.
Even if it isn't the testing, I would think the problem would
be completely unrelated.

Hmm, the tuner number is probably not important, but if it is
always the same channel there is probably something different
about this channel/program. Maybe MythTV can't find any
keyframes ? When it does record this program can you skip
around in the recording normally ?
