I'll look at the rest later, but wanted to mention that you can ensure 
MythTV can re-record the episodes by selecting the episode in Watch 
Recordings, then using MENU|Recording Options|Allow this program to 
re-record , and you don't need to delete the recording, so you could 
keep it around for some debugging.  If you also change the recording 
title (MENU|Recording Options|Change Recording Title), it won't be 
listed with the good recordings of that series, and confuse other users 
of the box.  (Since it seems it's happening frequently, feel free to 
delete them using MythWeb until you're around the box where you can 
allow re-record/edit title for one.)
