Ok that makes sense i'll investigate more. However in the general case
i think it'd be good if myth included some resilience.
Ideally it should monitor the recordings and restart those that fall
over (up to x number of times). My script is ok but it's a bit me a
blunt instrument. I suspect my prob is down to the Ubuntu upgrade or a
deteriation in signal quality but i'd still expect myth to be more
rugged than this by now.
