I think it is some bug they introduced to the software. I've read somewhere that those zero length recording didn't happen with 3.5.3. I had no problems since downgrading. Actually, out of curiosity, I just updated again to 3.5.6 yesterday only to find out that the problem still persists. Pretty poor considering that the EyeTV Hybrid is an Elgato product an officially supported... My suggestion is to go back to 3.5.3 and see whether this works for you as well.
