Problems with transcoding (1 Viewer)

I am a newbie who has MP set up to record TV to a NAS that is also mapped as a local drive.

In the past all has worked well. But for some reason now the transcoding plugin has stopped working, both for scheduled transcoding and for transcoding on demand.

I figure it might be easiest first to sort out transcoding on demand. If that can be made to work then the scheduled service might too.

When I requested a transcode on demand just now and then looked at the Transcoding status in iPiMP, I got:

Transcoding is not running.
Last time it finished at 14.1.2012 5:00:56
and finished at
This task succeeded.

The tv.log file has:

2012-01-14 05:00:56.853153 [(16)]: uWiMP.Transcode: Transcoding started.
2012-01-14 05:00:57.165154 [(16)]: uWiMP.Transcode: LaunchProcess start C:\Program Files\iPiMP\Utilities\FFMpeg\FFMpeg.exe -i \\DISKSTATION\video\Recorded TV\Ekonomika ČT24 - CT 24 - 2012-01-14.ts -ss 190 -vcodec mjpeg -vframes 1 -an -f rawvideo -s 88x50 "V:\mp4\Ekonomika ČT24 - CT 24 - 2012-01-14.jpg" "V:\mp4"
2012-01-14 05:00:58.100160 [(16)]: uWiMP.Transcode: LaunchProcess end
2012-01-14 05:00:58.107160 [(16)]: uWiMP.Transcode: LaunchProcess start "C:\Program Files\iPiMP\Utilities\HandBrake\HandBrakeCLI.exe" -Z "iPhone & iPod Touch" -i "\\DISKSTATION\video\Recorded TV\Ekonomika ČT24 - CT 24 - 2012-01-14.ts" -o "V:\mp4\Ekonomika ČT24 - CT 24 - 2012-01-14.mp4" "V:\mp4"
2012-01-14 05:00:58.595188 [(16)]: uWiMP.Transcode: LaunchProcess end

In fact nothing happened, as far as I can see (certainly the file did not transcode).

When I entered the above command line (i.e. C:\Program Files\iPiMP\Utilities\HandBrake\HandBrakeCLI.exe -Z "iPhone & iPod Touch" etc.) directly via the run command in Win7, it appears to be doing what it should.

Any suggestions anyone?
