Reason is that your backend issue could be caused by a corrupt capturecard

If the error is related to a capture card that does convert external video
signals such as a HD-PVR then it can be a configuration issue.
In mythtv-setup look at page Input Connections / Interaction between Inputs
For a HD-PVR the "Max Recordings" should be 1 and the  "Schedule as Group"
should be unchecked.

When the  "Schedule as Group" is checked then additional virtual tuners are
created when needed, but this can only work when the complete transport
stream is available such as with capture cards that have a tuner.
