Neither. The myth system is just over a year old, running 0.25/12.04
mythbuntu. For 10 months I had a single pvr150 recording analogue
cable from charter; there were essentially no flaws in those
recordings. Charter changed over to an encrypted digital signal in
mid-January and I changed to an hdhr3-cc with a cable card and tuning

The new tuning system has never provided flawless recordings in 2
months of operation, but my subjective evaluation is that the gaps
have been increasing in number and length of time.

I don't see any indication of the gaps in the hdhr logs, only in the
backend log, and only at the end of a recording. I have looked on the
silicondust fora, and I didn't see mention of similar problems.
