Wow...the same thing happened on ER at 10PM.

5 minutes into it there was still no file.  Again, after deleting the
(non-exiting) recording I was able to record it fine by going into
LiveTV, tuning it in, and hitting record.  Actually all three of these
were on card 2 of my three HD-5500s.  After these shows record I'll
make sure that cards actually working ok, though I think it is.
