Well 10 minutes before Heroes, I got it to work.  Not sure why but here is
some things I did in case it helps others.

Bang head against coffee table.

First I removed all channels and then all video cards.  Recreated card (this
step was probably not needed but did it anyway).  Then rescanned for all of
the channels.  This took a few try to get it right but eventually I got it

Everything seems to be working (recording all my shows correctly, playback

Thanks for the help and the ideas.   I wish I understood why this happened
in the first place
