I think I discovered an issue that others have seen before.
MythTV backend: Separate machine, Myth 0.27
MythTV frontend: Zbox, Myth 0.27
Summary: Some recordings end up in the LiveTV recording group.
* Watch a channel Live prior to a scheduled recording start on the
* When the scheduled recording starts you can notice two tuners being
used (1 for the LiveTV and one for the Recording)
* You can now stop or continue watching LiveTV, it doesn't affect the
* The scheduled recording ends up in the LiveTV Recording group and is
not visible in Recorded Shows (unless you switch group)
This is a problem. Specifically when you are not aware of it. My wife
was upset her recording was gone (#!@% home built system..). It turns
out I could move it back from LiveTV and restore the trust in this
Anyhow, I started searching and discovered that this is actually not a
new problem and there seem to be a ticket open for it
(https://code.mythtv.org/trac/ticket/11119). There is a patch.txt in
there but it seems it never made it to the code. At least I can not see
the changes in the code and I can reproduce the problem.
I am not sure why we have this behavior. Initially I thought that
somebody wanted to reuse the same tuner and live recording for the
scheduled recording and that the recording would be left in the LiveTV
group by mistake. However, I can clearly see that 2 tuners are active,
so I don't know if this is perhaps just a mistake.
