David, thank you for your suggestion. I suppose it's
possible, but I'm running both mythbackend &
mythfrontned as root, and also it is possible record
using "R" just fine, it's only the scheduling that
doesn't work. Do scheduled recordings and recordings
initiated from live TV use different directories or
permissions? are there processes that are spawned
under different UIDs than 'root' that may have
permission problems?
