Hi there,

I'm running 0.21-fixes and just recompiled (r16102).   I'm using 3 DVB-T 

Whenever a start live TV, or change channels in live TV, I noticed that 
2 mpg files are created in my recording directory.  The first is always 
0 bytes and has a slightly earlier filename timestamp (see below).

    -rw-r--r-- 1 mythtv mythtv       0 2008-02-17 12:43
    -rw-r--r-- 1 mythtv mythtv 4819944 2008-02-17 12:43

I also get an error in my mythbackend log at the same time, when it 
tries to generate a preview for the first/invalid recording.

    2008-02-17 12:43:29.397 Preview Error: Previewer file
    '/storage/livetv/2501_20080217124325.mpg' is not valid.
    2008-02-17 12:43:29.411 Preview Error: Run() file not local:
    2008-02-17 12:43:29.423 Preview Error: Preview process not ok.
    fileinfo(/storage/livetv/2501_20080217124325.mpg.png) exits: 0
    readable: 0 size: 0

Two entries for this recording also appear in "recorded programs" when I 
enable the "LiveTV" group.

This happens whenever I change channels in livetv (2 recordings, 2 
files, the first being 0 bytes).  This doesn't happen on scheduled 

Let me know if you need more info.
