I'm having similar problems but with TV. Radio is fine.
Running in the UK. Windows XP, GiP 2.97
Any TV programme that I try to record locks solid, no error message.
On another PC running Windows 10 but using GiP 2.94, it records fine.
This is my options file:
fileprefix <name> - <episode> - <firstbcastdate>
output v:\BBC iPlayer Recordings
This has started over the last two or three days.
Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
