Thanks Brian

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!
