You often don't get cdrs or at least useful ones unless you run the call files through a Local channel

You maybe already doing this

Can you check the Master.csv and see if it also is recorded incorrectly there. Is this just an issue with mysql cdrs or something else. In my setups which use freepbx I haven't had an issue with cdrs and call files if using Local channels to call

Cheers Duncan
