Is it possible that the combined bandwidth of all of the concurrent
recordings is saturating your IO (network or disk).  I know that my system
records more concurrent recordings, and much larger recordings during
prime-time than any other part of the day.

 I also know that we have been experiencing tons of bad weather the last
few days, mostly in the evenings as the temperatures drop, and that has
caused some recordings to fail for me.
