Understood, and thank you.
I've been looking at this problem using MythWeb and deleting the
recordings when I spot them, in order to avoid frustration on the
part of my better half (and also in order to give the system
permission to re-record the show as soon as possible, as opposed
to only when I get a chance to look at it when at home).
These failures show up in the Recorded Programmes section of
MythWeb with a "-" where you'd expect the channel icon to be.
Just found another-one in Mythweb and the channel as shown in the
frontend is "#2019 #2019". The other metadata looks OK (title,
date/time, description, screenshot, ...). Here it is in
recordedprogram (ooh there's two):

Despite playing a key role in the birth of speed metal and inspiring bands such as Metallica and Guns N' Roses, Anvil have never succeeded in achieving the recognition they deserved. Now in their 50s, the band head into the studio to record their 13th album and set off on a ramshackle tour of Europe. film movie 2008 0 0 0 10 0 0 0 249389452 NULL MV249389452 0 0 4 0 1 NORMAL WIDESCREEN
The reason why I've been looking at recording rules etc is to
find out why the backend is trying to record from this mystical
channel in the first place; I fully accept that it can't invent
this channel all by itself so it has to be somewhere in the
