When i try to compress my recordings from ms-dvr to xvid using the plugin Mediaportal just reports "Error". Why is this? I downloaded a codecpack which contained the Elecard mpeg2 decoder according to the statement made when the compression plugin is started.

Any suggestions? Are there any more settings that must be made?

1. Delete the codec pack, it WILL cause you more trouble than it's worth.
2. Install and register the Cyberlink DirectShow filters MPGMUX.AX & CLDUMP.AX in the MediaPortal folder.
3. Source and install the Elecard codec.
4. Source and install the Xvid codec.
