Hmmmm no, I'm still setting the system up and toying with it, so I only have a few recorded shows. But I have been shutting it down and starting it back up again quite a lot, sometimes during recording and once during a mythfilldatabase session when it took so long I thought it had crashed. Is there any way I can check for corruption in my database, or anything I can run which will fix it?
