when i had this issue, it was becuase i didnt run myth-backend under sudo.
(i have to run the daemon, and not the service for other reasons)
i did try resetting permissions, but they got overwrote/new recordings didnt
have the permissions with the backend ran.

i didnt try too hard to find out a file-permissions based fix though
