hello,

I'm attempting to build a very simple pvr program that will perform the "timeshifting" trick of playing back a video file while it's being recorded. I'm doing this in visual basic, and I'm looking for a way to open the capture file from a media player control while the capture control is recording to it. I haven't been able to solve the problem of the capture file being locked, and I am unable to open it for playback in the media player control. any suggestions?

Hello,

Unfortunately, there is no solution to your problem. While IC is writing to the AVI file, the file is locked.

Best regards
