Funny that you mention that.  I live in 95136 and was getting the
failed recordings the past several days.  I did a rescan this morning,
and compared the scan to my original.  Many of the channels had indeed
shifted slightly, but none of them were missing.  Perhaps they are
still tweaking things in your neighborhood?  Do you need to try a
different VCT ID perhaps?

Snippets from my rescan/update:
VCT_ID 3065
UPDATE channel SET mplexid=89,serviceid=1,channum='2',callsign='KTVU'
WHERE freqid=2 AND sourceid=2;
UPDATE channel SET mplexid=89,serviceid=3,channum='5',callsign='KPIX'
WHERE freqid=5 AND sourceid=2;
