One issue I had when DVB radio support was added was needing to ensure
the recording profile (via mythtv-setup) was NOT set to 'TV' for the
card. Using the 'TV' profile requires at least 1 video stream to be
present, which my UK-based DVB-T radion recordings do not have,
causing any recordings and LiveTV listening to fail. Setting the
profile to 'All' cured this.
