View Full Version : LiveTV stops and restarts
2008-05-28, 04:43 AM
I've been noticing that one of my HD channels on LiveTV plays for a brief period of time on the PCH and then I watch mono show EOS for end of stream and GBPVR continues as if there was a channel change. The logs always seem to show this sequence (with no keystroke) and the thirty seconds seems to be consistent too.

To add some more info. on this, the second file "-1.ts" does not get deleted from the live tv folder and is not in the LIVE_TV table either.
Bump this thread tomorrow morning any I'll take a look. I'm away from my development machine this afternoon.

I'm not sure this is the cause but...
Usually timeshift mode will change files at the end of each show. These logs show you starting tv just a smidgen before 23:30 (23:29:59.942). Soon after it checks the EPG info and sees a new show has started (probably at 23:30), so it closes the file and switches to a new one.

The problem seems to be 100% reproduce-able at any time. These are manual recordings if that helps.
Can you post another set of logs to me to look at?

Here you go. The logs for the first error are a bit off on the timeline because it was slow during a reboot virusscan after patch Tuesday but the second one in the log is clearly what I am seeing.

I think I can see the cause. Can you see if the attached patch resolves it?

Unfortunately that didn't get it. Logs attached. A couple of things I have found.
- If I change channels the problem doesn't happen.
- Sometimes instead of the -1.ts file I have a file named the next minute.
Sorry, I posted the wrong file. Try this one.
If it doesnt work, post the logs again, including the GBPVRRecordingService.exe.log. I've added a couple of log messages that would help me know why it is happening.

Excellent that patch has fixed it.
