Although I'm running SVN (currently 12477, previously a build from
114xx time), I've never had a problem with recordings on five
terminating (I record NBA and X Games coverage and Law & Order
whenever it's on). I'm using the Sutton Coldfield transmitter for
reception with KWorld DVB Xpert cards - could it be a transmitter or
card specific problem?

Have you turned on full 'recording' logging? Have you run a new
channel scan after upgrading to 0.20? Can you record from five using
other software such as kaffeine without incident?
