Sorry, my report was misleading. What I'd not taken into account
was that on the morning of the missed recording, I'd rescanned
for channels. Something must have gone wrong with that. After
the missed recording, it was a while before I thought to try
watching the relevant channel live. When I did try, I got
nothing. I've rescanned now, and everything looks fine again.

Also my backend didn't hang.
