    I have had some recordings producing an empty file. An extract from the TSWriter.log file shows the following error:

    The CPesPacket::Fullbuffer error seems to be 6 times a second for the duration of the program. Is it a settings problem or a bug? Teh previous and subsequent recordings were fine (no reboot or restart of the service in between).

    I actually have the same here. To early for me to tell why, since I'm installing a new build everyday. I think though its on scrambled channels and maybe MP does not wait enough time for the picture to come? I'm gonna try the new settings in the setupTV, but I don't really know what they do.maybe they are in the wiki already

    I also get the same problem, with the same FullBuffer error messages, but only if I set the recording type to mpg. If I set the recording mode to Transport Stream, it works.

    I did some more checking - on my set-up I only see this problem on one transponder. For all channels on that frequency recording to mpg fails, for all other channels it appears to work. So far this is completely reproducible.

    Not sure whether it is due to interference, or whether there is something odd about the BBC channels on 506MHz.
