    Recording fail 03.03.15

    Thanks for you help. The Deal or No Deal was the test recording and it worked. Maybe the lack of BBC Four is causing a problem. I selected the programme to record and the red icon appeared. I was so keen to record it that I checked and double checked. I will do another test on BBC4HD tonight...

    Recording fail 24.01.15

    Man, I feel like such an asshole. I have solved this. Thanks for your support The problem was not restarting the tv server after changing the recording pathway. It still has not solved last night's failure- but I am too tired to worry about that. I really appreciate your time I hope in...

    Recording Fail

    Thanks for the quick response. It could be possible that somehow I deselected the choice. Totally plausible when you have a hd version of the channel beside the sd one. I am thinking that I may have selected then de-selected. I was tired My bad

    Recording Fail

    Hi MePo has been really reliable for those late night recordings when you want to go to bed. But last night it failed to record a film Boyz N The Hood was on BBC TWO at 23.35 on 19.12.14 However, despite setting the timer, it failed to record I have attached the recent logs- could someone...

    If you lose power when recording- is the recorded file garbage?

    The file will not play with VLC or WMP. It also will not convert in handbrake. As it is a hd file I have no means to split it It is taking up space and so I will just delete it. I think when using Mepo to record and you lose power it ruins the output and thus it is garbage as I suspected...

    If you lose power when recording- is the recorded file garbage?

    I will see if I can convert the file. I think a windows update just forced a system shutdown/restart while recording. I will update you after I have tried to convert the t.s file

    The attempted recording of Cops this morning did not work. What am I doing wrong? Ok, I have just seen the steps to manually, stop and start the service. I will try another scheduled recording.......maybe it does not like Cops......so I will try another show

    Media Portal has suddenly gone FUBAR

    Having slept on this and spoken to a work colleague whose response was 'Why are you even bothering, if it is so much hassle'? I have decided to give it one more go. I can't even generate a watchdog report. How did this all just deteriorate so rapidly? Why am I always getting this message and...

    I am not annoyed at your speculations as to what could have possibly gone wrong. I also appreciate that without logs or at least more information you could never attempt to surmise what could have colllapsed the system. I have spent at least 6 hours on this today and at least 20 this week. I...

    Media Portal has suddenly gone FUBAR

    I appreciate what you mean about the possible user error. But, one day I went to bed with it working perfectly and the next day, two failed recordings and the whole system was effed up. Maybe Windows 7 and Mepo do not mix? It has taken 15 mins so far at attempting to reinstall,just one more...

    Using the one click option. I will use the watchdog to upload any future logs if it does not work. It says a lot that I could not find that tool because I have only had minor problems which I have been able to fix myself until the last week. The total uninstall took 9 mins I am patient- but...

    I cannot find the pathway to reporting a bug in that folder. If you need me to send you a screenshot of any folder- let me know. Perhaps the last installation did not generate that handy tool.
