You can set priority for your capture cards and channels, which should
help here. Also (at least in 0.16) there is an option to reduce
conflicts between recordings and live tv which could be throwing up
the problems you are having, especially if you are watching on the
channel/tuner you are wanting to record from. It is likely to try and
record the channel on another capture card if you ware watching on a
particular tuner and have this option enabled.
