In case it helps I'm getting the same problem with 1.3.28. Log extract:

Note that it runs for half an hour before exiting, though there is a hiccup 
after 5 minutes. Last night it ran for 20 minutes before stopping on a 
similar recording.

I don't have a good DTV signal and so the data stream will have errors in 
it (though the picture is still watchable). Could this be the problem?
