Hi Chris,

This sounds a little bit like the problem that I have (see posting 
"Can't watch live TV (lengthy)" on 5th March). I have nothing observed 
in the backend-log, but when I start the frontend with "-v all" from the 
command line, there are indeed some error messages.

I only have one tuner card, recording works, but no LiveTV after editing 
the channels. The screen too goes black, and returns to the main menu.

I have no solution for that, but could you check whether you have these 
messages too? (check for "Error, timeout" or "failed to get pginfo").

Best regards,
