It's true that --pvrqueue can be used on a future schedule but the
main purpose is to queue up the PIDs of matching programmes to be
downloaded when the pvr next runs (i.e. get_iplayer --pvr). So it
should work with current matches.

I suspect what has happened here is that the index number specified
'went away' between the initial search and the --pvrqueue ?? Maybe
there is a background indexing operation going on? If there is maybe
the refresh failed and the index was short/empty for a while?
