I've encountered this issue numerous times...
Also today, yesterday and friday...
I just ignored it and did not install w32codecs...
At the moment I'm having a hard time getting myth going...
Everything seems set properly, I have program listing, but myth will simply refuse to show tv...
I've tried recording through http://dcerouter/mythweb
, and everything is accepted, next, when I check /home/public/data/videos/tv_shows_1/ I see the recordings listed but the files sit at 1120k size???
Checking in the logs, I read this:

So I'm forcing install of w32codecs now to see if this has anything to do with my myth problem.
