[mythtv-users] Stuck on why recording always fails

Hey all,

I think I'm facing my last big gotcha in getting this up and running. 

All scheduled recordings fail. I'm pulling my signal from comcast cable
here in SF, and have scanned the channels with QAM-256 and IRC, which
seems to find most of the channels I'm interested in. I can watch live
tv fine.

My program lists are correct, but the recorder always fails. 

The backend log shows:

2006-12-02 21:12:34.325 Scheduled 73 items in 0.3 = 0.26 match + 0.05

I've tried HRC and default for the cable frequencies, but I get the same
results. According to the log it looks like there should be tuning
parameters associated with the channel (via the mplex value from the
channel table). 

Has anyone run into this problem before?
