I often start playback while the file is still being recorded with a MyHD card. The problem I run into is that MPlay will reach the "End of File" and stop playing on the last file because the .mplay file indicates its at the end. The only way to finish is to wait until the show is done recording (which updates the .mplay file) or to quit MPlay and delete the .mplay file.
Would it be possible to add a remote option that would force MPlay to update the .mplay file so that MPlay knows that the file is now bigger than what is listed in the .mplay file? Perhaps when one does a pause\pause it could be updated there along with the resync?
MPlay only uses the .MPlay file to determine bookmarks, chapters, resume point, and zoom mode. It is not used to determine file length, so it has nothing to do with what you're seeing. MPlay should continue playback as long as there is still data in the file to be served. Can you give us more detail on what's happening when you hit the EOF? Does it just happen at some arbitrary point while watching the video? Does it only happen if you fast-forward or rewind in the video? Is it possible that playback has caught up with the recording when it happens? Is the recording split into multiple files, or one large one? If multiple, how are they named, and do you know if MyHD has a write lock on the current one?
It looks like marcelo is looking into it for you, since he has a similar set up. I'll let him ask the questions http://www.rokulabs.com/forums/viewtopi ... 4914#44914
Sorry for all the questions...
