If you encounter a recording where the time shown in the progress display is
not correct, the index is most likely wrong. In such a case please do as

- change into the *.rec directory of that recording
- rename the file index to index.old (or whatever you like)
- run the command
   vdr --genindex=`pwd`
   (`pwd` will be replaced by the name of the current directory)
- do an
   ls -l index*
   and compare the size of the old and new index file. If they are the
   same, that means that --genindex produces the same index file as did
   the original recording, and thus I should be able to reproduce the
   here if you send me the first minute of that recording.


It's clear, thank you.
