    When i choose the default recording quality in setup, it is not correctly taken into MP. It is always recording with a relatively high quality (I set quality to 150-300 kbps and a 6 minute recording is at 387 MB).
    When i manually choose quality in MP-GUI, everything works fine (8 minutes with 60 MB).

    DMAN_LFC meant in IRC that this is because of different algorithms in PVR-Cards. But since it is working in MP-GUI it should work from setup too.

    So I have two questions:

    1. May anyone with a PVR-Card check if it is the same synopsis for you?
    2. May anyone of the devs have a look at it?

    Found a workaround:

    Set the high quality to lower kbps. But this shouldn't be the way it is meant to be?!?
