Can you get 2 simultaneous DVB-device recordings to work with valid files
for playback, but not three simultaneously (two good files and one zero
bytes)? That's my situation, I posted something that may be somewhat similar
yesterday (http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/users/223469) and
haven't heard back from anyone yet. My diagnosis so far points to something
like a not-quite-big-enough kernel buffer but I'll happily be wrong.
