I tossed everything and have recreated it. Double checked and made sure
that within #4 Input Connections
that the Tuner1 is pointed to PVR-250 (the name of my video source).
When watching Live TV, I can see the guide update as I change channels,
so I can only assume that the
relationship of Guide to Tuner works correctly.
After recreating, the Encoder # incremented to 6.
Toying around in the db, I could see everything I wanted to record
populated within mythconverg.record. I'm
guestimating this is the source of data when I click "Recording Schedules".
Regardless, I'm still up the creek without a paddle.
