Hi

My setup has been working fine for about 3 months, until a few days ago.

Now recordings no longer work. Recordings appear in the database but
when you try to play them you get a message saying that the file can not
be found.

In the backend logs I see the following:

2009-02-26 21:07:36.781 MainServer: Failed to make preview image.
2009-02-26 21:07:42.609 Error: offset>181, pes length & current can not

This log shows from starting a recording through to attempting to view
the recording. The "Preview Error: Run() file not local:
'/GetPlaybackURL/UNABLE/TO/FIND/LOCAL/FILE/ON/mythtv/6165_20090226200100.mpg'"
appears to suggest that the Storage Group settings are wrong. The
"Error: offset>181, pes length & current can not be queried" looks like
something else is wrong too.

The recording never appears in the recordings directory.

I have tried resetting the 'Default' Storage Group directory but to no
affect.

Can anyone suggest what else I can try?

Richard
