RE: RMAN recovery from tape with automatic channels

This is a restore you are trying to do, not a backup.... So Fuad's example
doesn't quite work.
It would appear that the RMAN control file or the recovery catalog thinks
that the backup you need to restore is sitting on disk somewhere and not
tape. ....

do the following command:

list backup of database summary; Is the device type DISK?? If it is, thats
why it's trying to goto disk to get those backupset pieces. How did these
get moved to tape? Manually or via RMAN?

  I knew I should have included SHOW ALL

  The default device is set to SBT

  RMAN configuration parameters are:
  CONFIGURE RETENTION POLICY TO RECOVERY WINDOW OF 5 DAYS;
  CONFIGURE BACKUP OPTIMIZATION OFF; # default
  CONFIGURE DEFAULT DEVICE TYPE TO 'SBT_TAPE';
  CONFIGURE CONTROLFILE AUTOBACKUP ON;
  CONFIGURE CONTROLFILE AUTOBACKUP FORMAT FOR DEVICE TYPE DISK TO '%F'; #
default
  CONFIGURE DEVICE TYPE 'SBT_TAPE' PARALLELISM 2;
  CONFIGURE DEVICE TYPE DISK PARALLELISM 1; # default
  CONFIGURE DATAFILE BACKUP COPIES FOR DEVICE TYPE DISK TO 1; # default
  CONFIGURE ARCHIVELOG BACKUP COPIES FOR DEVICE TYPE DISK TO 1; # default
  CONFIGURE CHANNEL DEVICE TYPE 'SBT_TAPE' MAXOPENFILES 8;
  CONFIGURE MAXSETSIZE TO UNLIMITED; # default
  CONFIGURE SNAPSHOT CONTROLFILE NAME TO
'D:\ORACLE\ORA92\DATABASE\SNCFTL01.ORA'; # default

    Not sure if this has anything to do with it, but is your default device
