I had to reboot my mythtv-backend server today for reasons unrelated to 

Now I am backup, I find that the HD channels will not display (in 
liveTV) or record.  The same tuner (Pinnacle 290e) will display non HD 
programs fine.

Looking at the log there are some entries like

Jul  6 17:01:26 owl mythbackend[4464]: I ProcessRequest 
ringbuffer.cpp:1086 (WaitForAvail) 
RingBuf(/var/lib/mythtv/livetv/1001_20120706165827.mpg): Waited 0.2 
seconds for data #012#011#011#011to become available... 188200 < 196608

I'm wondering what could be wrong.
