To make things easier, what about to mention name of the new file so it can be easily found in debug.log?
He did, assuming use of the same filename listed before:

Edit: is that a valid avi file? Shouldn't matter (typically you see a "corrupted, going to hide the file" message), but just checking other options.
Also, does that avi file now show up when you restart PMS?
May need a dev to look into this.
