I have about 300 recordings and I got it working this week so I have
only tried a couple, like 10 recording. Movies from Canal+, HDTV
material from SVT, cartoons and some other things, but the sound has
The only things I did was.
- Introduce a path in "VideoStartupDir"
- Add upnp in verbose command line option
- Add a route for my internal nic (route add -net 184.108.40.206/8 eth4)
Please note that I only use DVB recordings (anysee E30C), I have no
PVR-150 card (or similar) or any software encoding cars. So, I guess
that must of my recordings are very similar, except from SVT HD.
My versions are :
- PS3 runs firmware 3.0 (I think, I have a slim and the latest firmware)
- Gentoo linux kernel linux-2.6.27-gentoo-r7
Calculating dependencies... done!

If you like you could send me a recording. I cloud then try to play it.
My guess is however that it will also fail. As you can see have I not
done any tweaks on my mythtv.
