Thanks Mike, yes, I'm in a similar situation, using PVR150 for my

Ouch Chris! Surely there are many out there still using analogue and
other non-DVB capture devices?

Thanks for the suggestion.
It's a good idea, and solves the problem of having to hunt for the
But there is still a small portion lost due to the capture being
stopped & re-started. Myth even re-selects the channel again, which
brings up the OSD of the STB, etc...
It would be great if Myth could detect the overlap, leave the channel
as it is & begin streaming a second file in parallel.
Anyone know how this could be achieved?
