    Question Recordings always ending prematurely.

    I am running NextPVR 4.2.3 (181112) on a Windows 10 Server and Kodi 17.6 as a client on Rasberry 2. Lately issues have started with recording and live view that didn't happen before.

    I am using IPTV as the source. This source works fine on my Android box using ProgTV but I want to have the Next PVR recording feature.

    Live view often freezes, which I could live with if I had to, but more importantly my recordings always end prematurely, usually at about 26mins. I have tried different recording folders but it still happens.

    Any help would be welcome. Thanks in advance.

    As a first step, try replacing your c:\program files (x86)\npvr\nshared.dll with this version https://forums.nextpvr.com/showthrea...004#post529004

    Your machine has decided it needs to transcode the stream to record it, but the CPU isn't managing to keep up. Newer nshared.dll files are better at not requiring the transcode.

    If you still have problems after that, post your logs again.

    Problems persist but randomly. Sometimes the show I'm recording is complete, 2.5hrs, sometimes not, 4min. Attached is the latest log in the hope someone can assist as I don't know how to decipher it. Cheers

    Please can you tell us the show name and date and time of a recording that was okay and also a recording that was not okay so we know where to look in the logs. Thanks.

    I deleted the good one and the failed one but the show was Good Morning Britain. I think Jan 28 or 29 at 22:00 was OK and same show Jan 29 or 30 at 22:00 was not. Both were set up as recurring recording based on guide.

    Thanks

    Update:

    Just tried to record Six Nations Rugby which should have been about 90 mins and only 4:40 mins recorded. Latest log file attached.

    Cheers
