It happens to me, too, but I never dared to report it as I use CAM with 
the DVB-S and in such cases the CAM is suspected first. It simply 
creates 0 bytes recording from time to time, most often those that I 
want to see most (but that's Murphy's law). I *think* it happens when 
the load is higher but that's just my guess. I don't have any useful log 
as this happens only sometimes (twice a week?) and I don't run with 
logging enabled all the time.
