I am using the R key to record on a channel that is connected to an S-Video 
input, and as such there is no program guide.....

I did try to setup a manual schedule using this input but I got an error when 
it started to record and the recording stopped.

The error in the mythbackend log was

2006-12-04 11:10:33.914 TVRec(1): HW Tuner: 1->1
2006-12-04 11:10:34.277 Channel::GetCurrentChannelNum(): Failed to find 
Channel ''
2006-12-04 11:10:34.279 Channel(/dev/video0)::TuneTo(): Error, failed to find 
2006-12-04 11:10:34.279 TVRec(1) Error: Failed to set channel to 999.

Not sure what is wrong here.....has to be with how I set the channel up, but 
what - Not sure.
