Hi:  It seems strange that after, presumably, rescanning for DSO you 
were able to record but suddenly can't.  Normally I would suggest just 
making sure you are using the right Transport frequencies and rescanning 
until all transports show netid and transportid in the editor window, 
but maybe there's a problem with the transmitted data.
