I don't have a disk space issue (only 54% used), however on looking at my.cnf I found that
tmpdir was not set, so I did that and restarted mysql, I have since rebooted the system.
Unfortunately, that has made no difference to the problem, I still have no upcoming
recordings (they don't even come up in the TV Guide).
