There are a few posts about QT bugs but this all seems solved in 0.23.  I've spent a lot of time on this and I finally found the problem, one of my channel names had trailing binary data (nulls I think) that was stuffing up the parsing of QUERY_RECORDINGS Play.  I'm on a Mac but this is irrelevant.

If you'd like to make a patch to remove non-printing characters from the 
channel name and callsign determined by the scanner, I'm sure it would 
be accepted.
