[mythtv-users] ringbuf1 troubles

I've got what seems to be a simple problem, but I guess I'm too tired
to see the solution. I've just gone through setting up my first myth
box but when I go to watch live tv I get a blank screen. The log says
that it can't read ringbuf1.nuv in /home/patrick/myth (The directory
I've created for myth and entered in mythsetup).

2005-07-09 23:12:18.612 RemoteFile::Read() failed in RingBuffer::safe_read().
Couldn't read file: rbuf://
2005-07-09 23:12:18.629 LiveTV not successfully started

In all the message boards I've searched in it says this is a simple
permissions problem. But "ls -l /home/patrick" gives

drwxrwxrwx   2 patrick root       4096 Jul  9 23:29 myth

And the actual folder doesn't have a ringbuf1.nuv in it (or any files
for that matter). But the directory should be accessible to mythtv.
What am I missing? Any help for a lowly n00b would be appreciated.
