Sorry, forgot to tell you the live tv prio. This is straight from my mytconverg:
LiveTVPriority | 1    | NULL

 Shane, I'm using the code from yesterday.  Its revision 15346 according to svn info. This is the version info from the log file:  mythbackend version: 0.21.20071211-98 As I said in my second post I think it is related to recoding the same channel on the same transport twice (eg recording a scheduled recoding from the transport and also watching the same channel on the same transport (on the same tuner) is impossible). This is probably the case when the recoding starts before the correct channel is tuned. I can post the logs tomorrow from the frontend and backend tomorrow when I am back at home. /Johan
