Hi,
 
I have checked the recording directory and sure enough, the index file stops growing after a short while (seconds).
 
I have tried mounting the NTFS partition with the async option but to no avail, i.e. problem is still there.
 
BTW: How do I respond to an already open thread? All I seem to be able to do is start a new one.
 
Mark.
