Replying to my own thread to close it off. Turns out the issue was a typical
PEBKAC error. In my rush to get everything working I failed to look at the
obvious. I had forgotten to add the recordings mount point to fstab. Once I
rebooted, there was no place to put the recordings and the backend marked
the tuner as 'failed.' /facepalm

Sorry for the list noise,
Shawn Flynn
