TV recording partially playbacked
« on: March 29, 2024, 08:06:38 pm »

Last night we had a TV Recording stop about halfway through playback.  We thought we had just goofed on setting the times.  This evening, we had the same thing happen on another recording. Specifically, we had set the recording for 98 minutes, and we could only view 37 minutes.  When I looked at the program's recording file folder, we had 98 minutes of recorded files.  The TV logs said that it had recorded the program for the 98 minutes. Only 37 minutes of the program would playback and the playback bar only showed that there was only 37 minutes available for playback. 

What can be done?  We had just upgraded to MC32 the other day.

I've seen this occasionally as well. Not just MC32 but going back several versions.

The most common thing I see is where a program appears to have some really odd duration, like 12 hours when it should only be 1 hour, but the file properties on the disc show correct start and end times. And when playing back, if I try to FF/REW or jump forward/back, the playback will just go back to the beginning.

I usually just chalk it up to some "signal" issue with my cable company or antenna.

More likely the data inside the recording is "currupt" because MC Guide looks correct, MC "to be recorded" looks correct, MC TV logs show correct start & stop times, and files on disc show correct date created & date modified & file size... But playing back the resulting video in any/all players shows the incorrect duration/time length (either very very short, or very very long), and seeking doesn't work.

I have another possible cause.  I had to clean up the TV setup last night because I botched the MC32 transition.  I have two SiliconDust tuners (four channels) on my network.  I noticed that MC32 TV tuning was missing channels that should have been picked up.  Upon further investigation, it looks like one of the SiliconDust tuners had seriously degraded where some channels were very degraded (I'm guessing that something in their filtering broke and the turner is very old).   I am in the process of replacing the bad tuner and seeing if that fixes the problem.
