I'm a long time user of MythTV (about 15 years) and am in the process of replacing my 10 year old setup with a Raspberry Pi 4 running MythTV Lite (v31) on a combined front end / back end and a new HDHomeRun Connect tuner box HDHR5-2DT .
Everything is working well, except Live TV which refuses to start, the backend reporting:

*Delete and recreate the recording profiles
*Delete and recreate the capture cards
*Upgraded the HDHomeRun to the latest firmware (20210224)
All to no avail. Still the same error. Recordings work fine, but no Live TV.
What's really odd is that (as per https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Setup_Recording_Profiles) the recordingtype option isn't even valid for the HDHomeRun Recorders profile group, so it's not surprising that the option isn't in the profile. I tried adding it to the codecparams table for the relevant profiles but that made no difference either.
Reports of this error seem to be a recurring theme for HDHomeRun recorders, but I'm not seeing any concrete solutions. Does this look like a bug for which I should file a bug report?
