(resolved) Bug with Zprocess2 and zero data recordings
I have a WinTV-PVR-150
Conextant MPEG II A/V Encoder
I had the timestamp error described in the Wiki, so I tried the beta drivers and the registry fix.
Now, whenever I do a timed recording, the end file after recording always is 0 bytes.
During recording, the filesize does grow steadily larger, so it is storing the video data. Then, when the recording is finished, somehow the filesize goes to 0. If I cancel a recording before its scheduled stop time, the video has the correct filesize and plays normally.
I also notice a .srt file with a 0 bytes filesize during and after a recording. It has the same name as the .mpg file.
I have tried removing and reinstalling the TV card drivers, and removing and installing GBPVR. These did not fix the issue.
I will post log entries after some testing.

Ok, looks like it was my fault on this one.
After trying many different things, I decided to put the logging to DEBUG and read the process of a short recording. No errors. But, after careful reading, I noticed that "postprocessing.bat" was being executed after the recording was done.
I had modified this file as part of installing ZProcess2.
Then I realized that I didn't have comskip or comclean installed.
My recordings were being zeroed by some error of some kind.
Putting back the REM I removed from that line fixed the problem.
