We can try, but we need more information.

Who or what is the "it" that says the recording has failed? If it's a  
log file you might try increasing the verbosity.

Does the system say "will record" in the upcoming recordings  
listings? Do you get a "no conflicts" message?

How are you scheduling the recording manually (from the guide? from a  
"list"? from a "find program" search?)?

Lastly, I know this seems basic, but you seem to have a single  
capture device, I assume you are not watching "liveTV" when the  
recording comes due? Don't laugh, I've seen this happen more than once.
