Lately, I've been having lots of trouble recording The Daily Show.
It will often cease to record at the point of the first commercial about 8 minutes in. It will then continue to record blank/black for the rest of the defined recording.
I cant reproduce that here. It splits on the commercial and starts recording the next segment fine.
Your logs are not in debug mode. Could you please do the following so I can see what might be happening:
New log attached. The video went black at about 10 min in just as before.
Note that I just saw the update so this was before latest update.
Newest log after updating program and trying again. This time after the first 6 minutes it frozen on a single frame for the duration of the the recording.
