Fast Remux only

All of my MCE recordings are OTA Digtial HD, they should always start with a fast remux.

However for short periods of time, 45 minutes ~ 2 hours every few days my reception suffers interference and I get low quality and unusable records, the picture and sound break up.

I have noticed that MCEBuddy in these cases uses [FFMpegBackupRemux] to use progressively slower methods of remuxing.  Since the final output is unlikely to be useable, I'd prefer to cut it off and simply abort or error out and just leave the recording as is for me to deal with later.

How can I change [FFMpegBackupRemux] to force MCEBuddy to give up, gracefully if possible, if it cannot fast remux?

Simple, just keep the first line

CopyRemux0=-i <source> -vcodec copy -acodec copy -map 0:a -map 0:v -f mpegts

Remove the rest.


MCEBuddy cycles through CopyRemuxX (ie. CopyRemux0, CopyRemux1, CopyRemux2...) and then through SlowRemuxX (SlowRemux0, SlowRemux1, SlowRemux2...) until it succeeds or until it runs out of Remux lines.
