None are being listed. This is on a system where we changed the tuners
and sources, so I don't think we set up any new recording schedules,
so there wouldn't be any yet. Listings seems to be working though.
We've been transitioning this setup, somewhat slowly, and Recordings
seemed to work fine for a while, then we noticed they weren't showing,
mainly after an apt-get update where we went in to check that it
didn't break anything, that's when we noticed this.
The recordings locations on the drives are read/write able by the user
running the backend and readable by the frontend user, and the
locations are in the Default storage group. with logging set to
most:info I don't see any entries about recordings, even when I go
into the Recordings screen or through MythWeb, even though it takes a
while for the system to process and display both.

I was hoping there might be another log setting that would show what
is going on.

Thanks for the help!
