[mythtv-users] mythfrontend won't playback all of my recordings

Thanks for the suggestion, but this doesn't appear to be my problem. I have
affected recordings that weren't recorded back to back with anything, and
changing my pop up settings does not appear to make any difference.


For my mythfrontends in other rooms, I'm streaming directly from the
backend, but the affected recordings have this problem even on the
combination mythbackend/mythfrontend machine where the drives physically
reside. Also, it's only certain specific recordings that have the problem,
and other recordings on the same drive work fine. I had been looking at the
output of -v playback, but I'll try enabling the full debug and see what
pops up. I agree that the message seems to say that it's having trouble
reading the file, but I can read the files fine from a command line, and so
forth, so that doesn't appear to be the case. When you say that you suggest
a newer version, are you referring to the development version, or are you
talking about the most current 0.27 with fixes?
