OK, since this thread was getting more annoying than wasting my own time 
reading your scheduler output, trying to figure out what's going on, and 
(possibly) typing up a long description of exactly what's happening 
(rather than working on MythTV code), I finally went in and read through it.

FWIW, it looks like your input connections configuration may be broken, 
based on the non-use of what I would guess (but can't say for sure since 
you didn't provide a before/after fixing it --printsched and information 
on your card and input configuration) are the IDs of virtual tuners on 
what should be your most-preferred card.

You didn't do any "break my configuration by making Live TV higher 
priority than recordings" type configuration, did you (by adding extra 
virtual tuners for Live TV after initial configuration), did you?

You didn't put any priorities on any inputs or channels, did you?
