Hello all,

I'm having a strange issue that I'd like help with. I'm running R5.5 (upgraded from R5F27). It is a standalone system and the FE and BE seem to be recording and playing back fine, with one issue. The recordings I've made from Tuner 1, when selected from the Recordings menu, present a black screen. The preview on the Recordings screen shows the content correctly(with motion). So I'm pretty sure the show recorded successfully, though I have not tried to playback the mpg file in an other player.

Edit: Recordings playback with mplayer, though scale is wrong - too big for screen(may need to set mplayer to fullscreen mode),

I have Tuner 1 set up to record from only 2 stations in my area(issues with antenna tuning directions). I have not changed the physical antenna set-up and this was working in R5F27. I did have to run mythtv-setup and add all the cards, antenna, and lineups after the R5.5 install.

All recordings are DTV-OTA

Shows from other tuners playback without issue. I'm not seeing errors in:

System Specs:
DVICO Fusion 5 lite x2(tuners 1 and 2)
HD-HomeRun (tuners 3 and 4)
Athlon 64 X2 4200
Motherboard - Foxconn 6150K8MA-8EKRS Micro ATX AMD
Leadtek nVidia 6200TC 256 PCIe
WD 500GB SATA x2




I was able to change the playback settings on the front end and get the recordings to, well, playback. I'll post the settings when I am in front of the Mythbox again. I'm not sure the characteristics of the recordings that make them unique. I'm able to playback from more than one station uses 1080i or 720p.
