Intermittent access errors when scheduling/starting recording

Short with recording that failed and one that worked. yamarukuhe (paste)

Long with a few that worked and failed. ixuqasusaw (paste)

I have the guide data from this period too, but the xml extract from TVH doesn't have event id's or anything in it.  I need to figure a way to get access to the raw EPG OTA data.

Edit: I just tried a forced grab to update the EPG in TVH and then stopped and started the tvh addon. The programs that were failing now work. I was able to schedule a recording on every channel without failure. I will leave it go a few hours, wait for programs to fail and then stop/start the addon again.
Problem with the tvheadend epg data, I'd say. Nothing Kodi/the addon can do about that.

At any time this fails with Kodi (recording from the guide), I can go to TVH itself and successfully record the same show. TVH and Kodi are both aware of the start and duration of the show at all times. If starting/stopping the addon makes a difference, I'd suspect that something about the EPG data for some channels is tripping up the addon, but Kodi is still able to read the EPG times successfully.

I have not tried changing instant-record to timed rather than guide - it's not relevant for me as I 99.9% always record from the guide.

(I have my arguments with TVH and recording, but that's another story - it's the best thing I've got atm)

Tardy update, I was travelling.

I just repeated the instant record failure. Stopped the Kodi addon without updating anything on the TVH server. The recording that failed that failed on two attempts worked first attempt after disable/enable of the addon in Kodi.

Would this be equivalent to a full reboot of the system? I commonly get the access errors just after switch-on (the Kodi client machine gets turned off every night, it's never left sleeping) but it appears totally random.

I am not sure what enabling/disabling the Addon does wrt to the database vs turning off the client machine. I know if i stop and start Kodi it makes no difference.  It isn't until I go into the addon and disable and then re-enable that I am able to record programs that initially failed.  This is 100% repeatable for me - would be interesting to know if it responds the same on your system?
