It is 12_1 OTA HD to a PC3000 Myth .19. I can tune to that channel and watch it fine.
I haven't had an issue with other recordings on that channel. House, for
example. I've deleted the schedule and recreated it, but I won't be able to
test it till the next showing. I more wondering what the error meant. The way
I read it is that it went to start, but that the payload didn't. Which makes
sense as I end up with a small file
/myth/tv/2121_20060410190000_20060410200000.nuv containing "Creating dummy
file for Prison Break J Cat".
