[mythtv-users] Zero-byte recordings on all tuners except HD-PVR

Hi all -

Running 0.25.2-fixes on Ubuntu 12.04 - recently upgraded both Myth (from
0.24-fixes) and the OS (from 10.04 (LTS)).

I have a HD HomeRun (standard, not the Prime) with two tuners, in addition
to a PC-HD5500 and an HD-PVR.

Since the upgrade, I've only been able to record from the HD-PVR.
Recordings from both the HD-HomeRun tuners and the PC-HD (only using the
DVB tuner) produce zero-byte recordings - though the LED comes on when the
HD-HR is supposedly recording and there is data coming in via eth0.  The
IP address of the HD-HR is static on my network is pingable.

I get the following in the backend logs:
ProgramInfo(2071_20120930142900.mpg): GetPlaybackURL:
'2071_20120930142900.mpg' should be local, but it can not be found.

The storage directories haven't changed, write permissions are OK (and the
HD-PVR is able to record).

I have tried deleting all capture cards and then adding them back in and
linking up the video sources.

Any ideas would be appreciated - thanks!
