Try getting the channels via a browser


If that fails (as before) then the last channel listed needs fixing.
Repeat until you see an XML list of channel data.

Then try the url for recordings again.
When you get an XML list of recordings (might take a while for browser
to parse) then the frontend should work again.

How did you update your channels originally ?
