I have an hauppage 500 video capture and Iīve been used sagetv, the error appears with format vcd only one. Wiht other format work very well, but i need to use vcd format.

The exclaty error is: there is no media player that can playback the selected file while itīs being recorded.

VCD is an MPEG1 format, which cannot be played while it is being recorded. You can play it after it is done recording. If you need to be able to play & record at the smae time, you would have to change the recording quality to one of the MPEG2 choices.

If you need the file in VCD format for archival purposes, you can do that conversion after you're done recording & watching.

But a few days back, I could record and playback at the same time, in vcd format correctly.
