I am completely new to Mediaportal.

I have a HTPC with 2 Technisat Cablestar TV cards. Media Portal is just working fine! I can watch TV :)
But i cannot record my programs. I checked my logs and in TVservice-error.log i se this:

[2014-05-10 14:55:12,767] [Log ] [scheduler thread] [ERROR] - subch:0 tswriter StartRecord failed:1

[2014-05-10 15:09:50,980] [Log ] [scheduler thread] [ERROR] - subch:0 tswriter StartRecord failed:1

I have searched on Google and this forum but no results.

Who can help me to solve this problem?

It's a new installed HTPC!

    Probably some kind of problem with your recording folder setting. Make sure that the folder exists... and post full log files.
