I have been having almost the same issue. However, it is only happening for one
channel/ multiplex (Channel 9 and Go in Australia). I can watch those channels
live but every recording on those channels in the last 2 weeks has reported a
file size B and I need to manually stop it recording from Mythweb. I thought it
was due to having too many simultaneous recordings. but last night setup something 

(mythweb is reporting everything okay from the database end except mythweather
tables reporting an error, ever since I stupidly upgraded mysql to a version
which no longer support innodb.. optimze and fix doesn't seem to change anything
with that but everything else is working fine)

Admittedly I have logging at a minimal level so didn't look for anything.. and
would need some advice as to how to raise the logging level..
