This has been discussed before and is likely available in the archives
under the title 'zero byte recordings'. I too suffer from the same
problem and have missed a couple of shows this week.
I think it was being looked at but haven't noticed any fixes come
through on the dev or commit lists. Hopefully, I just missed the
email though :|
I have GMail invites, if you want one, email me direct.
