Are there any error messages from the backend? You might try running it 
in a consol window for debugging purposes with the -v option. Is there 
enough space on the hard drive? I haven't seen myth only record like 
this. With live tv, are you able to go back further than 19 seconds, is 
it working if you pause tv and come back in a few minutes?
