    My PC encountered a problem last night while recordings were going on. One of these recordings does not appear in the recordings list for MP2 - August 20, 2016 weekly build. The problem was not related to MP2, rather to my having configured compskip even though I am not using it and four instances of comskip running at the same time that overtaxed the PC. The .ts file for the recording appears to be the correct size, and I went into TV Configuration - Recordings - Import, but nothing is there. I do not expect this problem to appear again.

    I am wondering if it is possible to navigate to the .ts file for the recording and play that some how. If so, how would I do this?



    Thanks in advance!

    Hi.
    The recording is an aaverage video file and for this it can be played with every media player and of course in MP2. If the file did not show up in Recordings most likely the corresponding xml file is missing or corrupt. This did not prevent playing the video but as the xml holds the metadata for this recording it is not recogniced as a recording. You simply can move the file to your video media source, run an reimport and it should appear in Videos and you can play it from there.

    Thanks.

    At some later point, the recordings appeared. I don't have an explanation for it.

    Not sure this is what you experienced but the Client may not have updated with the server for a while and that could be why they didn't show right away.

    Yes, I figured out that is what I experienced.
