I think it could be one of these things
On board intel raid 0 with three 320gb drives

    The MediaPortal log files probably hold a clue - delete all your existing log files (for both MediaPortal and MP TV Server) and then start playing a recording until the problem occurs. Attach your MP log files to this thread for us to take a look at, and describe the exact steps and at what precise time the recording stopped.

    Also, have you played one of the "faulty" recordings with another application to see if the recording itself is complete (i.e., the file doesn't end prematurely)?

    Does this happen on DVB-T or Analog, or both?

    Any other clues?

    thanks, I'll get back to you


    I don't use the analog part of my hybrid tuners.

    I'm currently dropping the network speed on the client down to 100 half duplex to see if its a cable issue.
    I can't remember, but I think I wired the house in CAT5 not CAT5e
