I'm starting to notice this happening more and more now. In fact I've
had 8 recordings fail like this since Friday :(

I thought perhaps one of my DVB-T cards could be faulty but tonight I
had 3 concurrent recordings working on the 2 cards so if it is a fault
it's an intermittent one. According to the logs it looks like "cardid
3, sourceid 1" seems to be a common culprit, but there are also
successful recordings against that card.

Any ideas how I can prevent this from happening? I very much doubt
it's a signal strength issue as I'm direct line of sight of the
broadcast tower.
