It looks like you're running your tests as root.

1st, I'd go to wherever your recordings are stored and make sure
all of them still have owner & group set to mythtv.

When testing from the command line, remember to run your scripts
as the mythtv user (or, not perfect, but: sudo -u mythtv command.)
