When I record a TV show using the scheduler, the resulting file is 
empty. How ever, if I start recording the show while watching it using 
live TV, it records just fine.

Running Mythbuntu 9.04, mythtv-common:
  Installed: 0.21.0+fixes20745-0ubuntu0+mythbuntu3
  Candidate: 0.21.0+fixes20745-0ubuntu0+mythbuntu3
  Version table:
 *** 0.21.0+fixes20745-0ubuntu0+mythbuntu3 0

     0.21.0+fixes19961-0ubuntu8 0
        500 http://au.archive.ubuntu.com jaunty/multiverse Packages

Running on Athlon 2800 64 bit, (Socket 754) with 2 gi6 of RAM, 500 gig 
SATA hard drive & SATA DVD- burner with HD Homerun tuner.
LiveTV & recording folder are the same, /var/lib/mythtv/recordings/Test

I've formatted the hard drive 3 times & re-installed,rwice with Ubuntu, 
then installing MythTV, the last time with Mythbuntu, each time with the 
same result.

Any suggestions?
