NDigitalHost.exe has encountered a problem
After turning the TV on last Friday evening there was a dialog saying “NDigitalHost.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close”. A recording was scheduled at that time so I assume that the dialog appeared when the recording started.
The machine has two tuners, a Nova HD S2 for DVB-S and a Nova TD Stick for DVB-T. When I go to play live tv from the Nova S2 the same dialog appears with sometimes a picture appearing for about a second, although I can play one of the DVB-T channels ok. Using WinTV 7 I’m able to see channels from either card with no problems.
So far I’ve tried:
- A reboot
- Reinstall NPVR 2.4.3 over the top of the existing
The NRecord log gives the error:
2012-06-17 12:23:47.781 [ERROR] Unexpected stopping remote stream: System.Runtime.Remoting.RemotingException: Failed to write to an IPC Port: The pipe is being closed.
Unfortunately the logs seems to have lost the entries for Friday evening around 22:00 when the original problem occurred but on looking at the time I noticed one of them saying something like “[something] is taking way too long”
Im using the SAF codec pack which was installed about three weeks ago, and its running Windows XP.
I’ve attached the logs where the problem was duplicated on 17th June at 18:34, and a jpg of the original error.
Looks like this was caused by the Nova HD S2 card starting to fail, I got the same result in another PC.
