Let me try asking this again because I may not have explain it good.
Right now it looks like when something records it finishes recording (60
minutes later) then it runs the commercial flagging and then the transcoder.
The transcoder takes as long as the program did (60minutes). So I'm
wondering if it is possible to run the transcoder as it records instead of
after. The comercial flagging I could hold on till the end for.
Basically the reason I'm asking is currently my front end can not handle HD
recordings. So I would like ti to be read by the card, transcoded, saved to
disk, then played on front end before the show end.
Hopefully that make sense.
