[mythtv-users] Recording Schedules not processed correctly.

four nights ago I suffered 4 brown-outs inside 90 minutes which
repeatedly spiked my 'always on' mythbackend server. [btw, I've
ordered a UPS to block the barn door in case future horses decide to
After little TLC, the server appears to have survive unscathed apart
from all the 'Recording Schedule' entries in the database no longer
Here's how it [doesn't] work:
1. I set a recording schedule for a recurring show. [due to be
recorded today and in the future]
2. The database correctly identifies today's show and records it. [phew]
3. The upcoming recordings also show other future instances of the
show as appropriate. [isn't Mythtv great]
However, the following day when I check, future instances of the
show[s] are gone and nothing is scheduled.
Because the entries look ok initially, I'm guessing that the error is
generated when mythfilldatabase is executed at ~4am and the database
I'm also assuming that whatever is causing this is as a result of the
brownouts and something is simply corrupted [but i don't know what].
This box has been running perfectly for nearly a year. [runs
FC4+ATRPMs, last updated ~3 months ago (to Myth .20)]
We rely on this box for all recording so I'm re-adding schedules
everyday while i attempt to resolve this. Clearly this is rather
tedious, but I really don't what to rebuild this from scratch so any
advice which minimizes down time is gratefully received.
I've guessing there is a way to to force a scrub of the schedules in
the database and start again but simply deleting them all and
re-adding them doesn't work.
has anyone resolved something similar or can offer other advice?
