[mythtv-users] recording live TV

I'm trying to use "R" to begin recording the currently playing video, but 
when I press R, it simply displays R "" on top, it doesn't really start 
recording. Nothing shows up in the "Previously Recorded" section. Maybe 
mythtv doesn't have the program information, so it doesn't assign a name to 
the recording? The video source I have setup is with DataDirect, but I'm 
getting errors retrieving lineups (I get "401 Unauthorized" on the http 
request). But in any case, even though DataDirect is not pulling in data, 
what I'm currently connected to is a DVD player, which obviously is not 
related to any listings. How can I use "R" as a one-touch record feature?

Another thing is I have to run alsactl everytime I start Watch TV, it seems 
to reset the volume so I need to run alsactl to restore the settings I want. 
Is there a way to do this automatically?
