    Yep you get a empty ts file, we get this with some of the UK shared channels, so if you try recording BBC3 which programs start broadcasting of a evening at 7pm, and have a 5 minute pre-record, it will fail with empty file as the transmission does not start for that channel until 6.58pm, so if you have a 2 minute pre-record then all works well.

    This should be changed, so that it re attempts to lock signal every 15-30 seconds, not just fails and gives nothing as a result.

    Hi
    Thanks for the reply.
    Is there a feature request for this or should I create one?

    (y) Oh, for sure! Please don't get me wrong. I really appreciate you reporting it. (y) On this occasion I think the log entry being an error is a bit misleading (sorry).

    I personally haven't received any PM, but either way, I don't think there's much more that I can offer you. Owlsroost is the expert when it comes to problems with client-side playback. As I've previously said, I don't read too much into this. This is partially right and partially wrong. Yes, MediaPortal has a service ("TV Server" /...

    I found the reason for my problem. The R:\ drive is a network drive and so the tvservice (system account) had not the permission to write on it. I changed the drive adress to the UNC adress: \\mediaserver\recordings. Now it's working . Thank you for your support. (y)

    I want to emphasize that I only said it was a possibility. These are the trade-offs of using a custom version.
