Hi Vincent,

Thanks for the reply!

I think the problem for me may occur when I record something that I am also
watching. I noticed MythTV puts these into my "LiveTV "recorded folder,
rather than in the default "Recordings" folder. I don't know for sure yet, I
need to do more testing but I just remotely set a random show to record
through mythweb and it has commflag'd ok. Tonight while I am watching TV I
am going to record something I watch and see if the same thing happens and
report back.
