I ran grep "Pocoyo" /var/log/mythtv/mythbackend.log last night but all I 
could see there were the recent episodes that have been recorded in the 
last couple of days. I guess my log wasn't bit enough to see past then.

Guess I'll never fine out what happened.

Oh yea, I didn't do the mysql check because I'm a big scary cat when it 
comes to mysql. All of my initial problems with Myth were Mysql related 
and I had souch a nightmare that I now daren't even look at the thing 
:-) I'd rather not know than risk messing with that.

As ever, thanks for the help everyone!
