I checked that (again). It is enabled and if I disable it, I see less 
I am wondering why I only see recordings up to 30th January 2006 here.
When I go to "delete old recordings" I see all recordings.

Right now it makes mythtv useless to me, as I also do not see new recordings. 
And they are recorded based on disk usage and that I got the screen "MythTV 
wants to record *****" while watching live tv.

I still think there is something wrong in my database. That's why I search for 
the SQL query that is taking place, so I can execute it manually and 
understand what is happening.
