[mythtv-users] Problems recording from second tuner

I have a Myth system (SVN 8152) with an HD-3000 and PVR-250
tuners. Everything works with my HD-3000 tuner. Tuning,
recording, everything.

It's a different story with my PVR-250, however. I had
some trouble getting this card to work again after upgrading
to Suse 10, but after a recent post about linking the
firmware files to /lib/firmware and remembering to set the
tuner=39 driver option, things are looking good...almost.

When watching LiveTV on the PVR-250, Myth can tune to all of
my channels. If I press R to record, it records fine (meaning
I can pause, skip back/ahead, etc.), so long as I keep
watching the show. If I exit back into the Myth menus, myth
stops recording the show. Similarly, if I'm in the program
guide and press R to record a show, it immediately says the
show is "Recorded" rather than "Recording." Here are the
backend logs when I do that:

As I mentioned before, this doesn't happen with my HD-3000.
It records shows fine. What has me stumped is that I can
watch these channels in LiveTV. Anyone have any ideas of
what might be wrong?
