Anyone else want to take out a contract on this Murphy guy - he is a
total PITB!!! :)
I have checked the entire filesystem and everything is fine. There are
no other 6Gb+ files anywhere on the system, so the DB seems to be fine
as well. What gets me is Myth put the record in recorded programs
without a file....strange, real strange.
Tonight, I'll watch live and then check the recording at intervals. I'll
just have to put up with all those damn commercials!
