I am wondering if it is possible to decode only a select few channels, but still record other encoded channels.
As my CPU is too weak to decode more than 3 channels at one time.
I would like to decode 2, and capture the other 3 encoded.

I have done this before by capturing the whole mux with TSreader (7 channels on 1 Transponder, all encoded, only 1 gets decoded).
And later decode the others with OfflineDescrambler.

But each time I try to record an encoded channel, MediaPortal tells me that No Audio/Video is detected, and skips the recording.
It is true that No Audio/Video gets detected because it is still encoded, but some people would like to still capture these streams, to save CPU cycles.

Thanks in advance,
