This seems related to a currently outstanding DVB bug report where
recordings fail if the channel is not transmitting when the recording
tries to start (e.g. clocks are slightly off or you've set up
recordings to start early). Both would be solved if a 'failed'
recording was retried intermittently (e.g. once a minute) until it
either succeeded (or a set 'give-up' time had elapsed), either by a
tuner becoming available or by the channel starting to transmit.
