    I have one recorded show which gives the error message "Can't playback the show: Audio codec: ". (I'm using MP in Finnish so I'm not sure what the error messge exactly says in English, but the "Audio codec: " part is as I wrote it.? I have seen this happening once earlier. Playback of other recordings work fine.

    Logs attached.

    Wonder if it is dual mono, you can try the M$ audio codec and see if that works.

    Otherwise FFDShow Tryouts (latest) audio config\codecs MP1\MP2 needs to be set to libavcodec.
    AC3filter config\system, enable mpeg support.

    Either of the above 2 will work for audio codec.

    It shouldn't be a dual mono broadcast. Tried with MS codecs, but it didn't help (logs attached). Will try later with FFD.

    This never happened before 1.0.1 and now I have seen it a few times with different TV shows.
