Using EIT? On around the same day - the 7th of April (depending on
timezone), a Danish DVB-C provider started sending invalid characters
as part of the program guide transmitted with EIT. This causes
unexpected behaviour in the frontend - such as disappearing
recordings, while the recordings still can be seen through mythweb. If
you're using EIT and your DVB-S provider shares one of same EPG
sources with invalid data, you might be hit by the same issue.

Try to check for NULL characters in your recorded table, something
like the following should do it:
SELECT chanid,starttime,title FROM recorded WHERE title LIKE '%\0%' OR
subtitle LIKE '%\0%' OR description LIKE '%\0%' LIMIT 10;

It's probably not the same issue, but it's quite a coincidence with
the match of date and the missing recordings in the frontend.

Best regards
