While recording Wheeler Dealers the WebIF was showing:
Playing Wheeler Dealers/Wheeler Dealers_20170602_1400
No chase play and the recording was a scheduled one. I'd powered it up earlier to run a just-in-case disk check. On exit I'd power-cycled it manually as it was complaining about no signal as per usual, made sure it was now OK and left it powered up.What's funny about that. Do you have detectads running in chaseplay? That 'plays back' as you are recording.
Not exactly. It's observed that the Humax software has a recording file open and its size has not increased while it was watching. It watches for 3 seconds which is a balance between returning quickly enough and having time to notice a size change.Showing something as playing implies the CF has observed a read access to disk.
The slowness of it without has always irked me. Now I know why.This makes the recording detection much more accurate and speeds up status display.
Yes. I've never really seen the point before. Might experiment.A reason to install redring!
