Hi

Would it be possible to add a option to record direct to mpg format. The frontend is excellent and keeps getting better, being able to record direct to mpg would make it perfect IMHO.

Cheers :lol:

i'm not sure if this is the right answer, but i think you're supposed to be able to provide your own compressors, such as mpeg, mpeg2, etc

    a lot has been said about this topic
    so please do a search next time
    anyway here's the answer
    MP uses the streambuffer engine for timeshifting & recording
    this engine records to the dvr-ms format which is a normal MPEG2 file
    with some an extended header
    There are programs which can convert an dvr-ms file to .mpg
    I think you can find those on xpmce.com
    and yes we hope to add transcoding in the future so you can
    convert your movie to mpg or xvid or.... after recording

    Of course this would be the best option, but I guess it’s not that easy to integrate external players into MP2. It was somewhere discussed, but I could not find the related thread.

    Thank you for performing this test, and confirming @joecrow 's suspicion as to the cause of the problem. In principle the same problem exists with other EPG sources, such as the broadcast EPG that I use with DVB-T/T2. When a programme first appears in the EPG (7 days ahead of its broadcast time), some programmes have a generic...
