0-Byte-recordings and mythtv continuously thinking it has to continue 
recording can both be fixed by restarting mythtv-backend. I have a cron 
job here checking mythshutdown status and then restarting mythtv, if 
appropriate. However, the restart doesn't always work, if mythtv thinks 
it's still recording...

In any case, this makes me believe that this is something which may 
have a relation to mythtv and not (merely) to the HW. Satellite lock, 
antenna should be ok, the rest of the TV system does not have related
