If you get no file at all (and no reported errors in the backend log 
file), that generally means that the capture card did not provide /any/ 
data at all for MythTV to write.  (Note that this is assuming you have 
permission to write to the recordings directories--if you don't, there 
should be an error in the logs and it should show that it stopped trying 
to record early rather than showing a message saying it's stopping the 
recording at the proper time.)

So, sounds like a capture card/driver/configuration issue.
