The thread that writes the index file is the same one that writes the actual recording. > I've never had a problem like this in older VDR versions, and I often do > cutting and recording at the same time. Strange - the code for actually writing the index file hasn't changed between PES and TS recording. But maybe you can take a closer look at the changes to cIndexFile between version 1.7.2 and 1.7.3. > BTW: Is the a way to (re)create a new index file for TS like genvdr for > VDR file did? I believe you mean 'genindex'. Maybe I should make VDR automatically generate an index file when replaying a TS recording without one...
