It sounds like you've got a problem with a PVR daemon ("Personal Video Recorder"; for example, something in your MythTV subsystem).

Find out what PVR you're using, and troubleshoot that package:
1) Try turning it off/one
2) Check its program settings
3) Check program-specific error logs
4) etc

'Hope that helps ..
