Bug? Aborting a recording leaves inaccessible file

    Not sure if this is the custom f/w or stock firmware, but have noticed this:

    (a) set a recording
    (b) tune to that channel
    (c) wait for recording message to flash on and off screen
    (d) immediately press stop to abort recording

    The recording will then be inaccessible, but is in the media list. Trying to access it gives a message about recordings of less than 30 secs not being retained. But they are!

    (It can be deleted via ftp.)

    Does this happen every time? If this is a bug there is a very easy work around, don't stop the recording straight away.;)

    Can it be deleted with OPT+?

    Yes, every time, and your workaround sucks! :)

    Has anyone else verified this?

    Well, I just tried it and the recording turned up in my Deleted Items folder so I guess the system deleted it and the CF intercepted the delete.

    I don't have a deleted items folder. Is that an "undelete" thing then?

    Yes. The point is that my system tried to delete the aborted recording, but for some reason yours is not.

    I have the latest custom firmware.

    Perhaps you should try it without the CF. Regarding undelete - that's an optional install.
