Hi Guys,

I have done several more tests using DVBWSP and DNTV SP2. So far DNTV SP2 has not had the problem mentioned above and DVBWSP has failed a few times.

I can reproduce the problem pretty reliably, so I am now confident in saying that whatever change you made to the filewriter seems to have done the trick in my case.

Bear, are you able to let null know what changes you made? Thanks again

Darren

Thanks for the quick reply.

One other point, I am using a version of tsfilesource from the Mediaportal project as your version gave me some mistiming issues with comskip on certain channels (as mentioned here)

I'll do some more testing with DNTV WSP and make sure this was not a fluke.

Cheers
Darren

QUOTE (bear @ Nov 6 2007, 08:01 PM) *
If you have a DNTVLive card you could try the renura's scheduler to see if the filewriter has the same issue, this may help to narrow down the problem.


Hi Bear,

I somehow missed this post (I normally just use 'view new posts'). Sorry about that, I must have seemed pretty ignorant not to have replied.

I installed DNTV Scheduler Pro 2 yesterday and did a couple of tests with it which seemed ok. I did a full live test this morning and I did not have a problem. I would have said it normally fails about 80% of the time with DVB WPS. I would not call this conclusive, but certainly promising.

Just some more info on the issue, I tend to find that if I have ZP paused when the recording finishes, the .info file is still left behind, but it more often then not does not then cause ZP to crash and ZP can continue to navigate the file correctly.

Is there a way of using the DNTV SP2 version of filewriter with DVBWSP? Although I notice that the DVBWSP has a later file date to the DNTV one.

I'll continue to check.

Thanks
Darren

Hi Null,

Thanks for the quick reply. I still have 4.0.11 installed (but stopped), so I may switch back and do some testing. I'll see if process explorer picks anything up.

Hi Null, A small issue I have noticed now that I am using version 5.0.0.12, before this I was using 4.0.11.

I often record files in TS format and then start playing them in ZoomPlayer while they are still recording, I stopped using DW or other apps for live viewing. I have ZP using the tsfilesource this has always worked well. I notice that now, and it is reproducible:

1/ Schedule recording
2/ Open recording in ZP, continue watching while it records
3/ Schedule finishes
4/ Continue to watch ok, in some cases ZP freeze at this point
5/ Exit Zoomplayer
6/ Open up capture again. ZP seems to report that the file is 16m 40s if ZP crashes and just 5 or 6 secs if ZP did not, but will not navigate through the file. If I delete (or rename) the .info file it seems OK, copy it back in and ZP will does the same thing.

So it would appear that WS may not be able to update the .info file if ZP is playing the file. With 4.0.11 it would leave the .info file behind if I was watching the capture when the recording finished, but it always seemed to be up to date.

5.0.0.12 is installed as a service running under the system account,

There does not appear to be anything in the logs, but I can send them if you like. To the best of my knowledge nothing else has change since installing 5.0.0.12


Any Ideas?


Thanks

Darren

Hi Guys,

Just a note (not a complaint!), it looks like the Seven HD data has the movie being at 10am rather than 10pm. I am sure this is a source issue. No big deal, I prefer it to be there in any form so I can see it at least.

CODE
  <programme start="20071103100000 +1100" stop="20071103120000 +1100" channel="hd.seven.com.au">
      <title>Blue Hawaii</title>


This is from the Sydney guides.

Thanks once again to all involved.

Cheers


EDIT : Sorry, jumped the gun. It seems that the HD content was on at 10AM today. Well that is what was on the yahoo7 guide too. I thought that 7HD was only going transmit in the evening. http://au.tv.yahoo.com/tv-guide/?hour=12&a...next=1194040800

If you are looking for a reliable source and don't mind the expense, then yes it is a good option.

What EPG source are you using? The problem is not with WS, but with your EPG source. If you are using the jrobbo guides have a look at the thread here http://forums.dvbowners.com/index.php?showtopic=8596

Hi,

Probably not a direct answer to your question, but have you tried the new VideoReDo TV Suite? This can take your TS file(s) and author it straight to a DVD pretty much in 1 step.

Cheers

I quite regularly connected to my HTPC with RDP and do not have any issues with HIP. Do you remote to the console? There is a XP pre SP2 version of terminal services DLL that allows you to remote connect to a 2nd session (google for it). Maybe this may help.

Other than the detail in the press release, has anyone found a tv guide for what they will be broadcasting on this channel? Even the yahoo7 guide does not list this channel!

Also I noticed the movie last night was in 5.1, nice.

What's the main difference between 5 and 5.5?
As discussed in the link, ZP5.5 had the ability to read the comskip files. I guess there may be some other changes but that is the main one for me

QUOTE
I guess after everyone screwing around to get PowerDVD codecs into Zplayer
For me the nvidia decoders give a very noticable improvement over the other two main decoders, but I have a nvidia card so it may be the combination. In any case it did not take very long to set this up and ZP gives me quite a few advantages over other players.

I'm not sure the webscheduler development area is correct for this post, but here is a reply.

I have a pretty similar setup but now with ZP 5.5. I record locally and then store some files I want to keep on a fileserver.

Here are some comments

Opening files from the fileserver can take a lot longer than locally. This happens with ts, mpg and mp4 files
Opening them locally seems quick, regardless of if they are recording or not.

Skip and Jump are fine for both local and remote files. Try and use the latest version of TSFileSource from MediaPortal as we discovered here. http://forums.dvbowners.com/index.php?s=&a...ost&p=63071

Have a go at running the file through projectx or the quick stream fix of videoredo to see if your file is OK, dropped packets may impact seeking.

The great thing with this combination is being able to continually watch a program that is still being recorded, with the duration being dynamically updated. I will often start something recording and start watching it pretty much straight away as a type of timeshifting, I find it more reliable than most other forms of timeshifting. In this case I also have a full copy of the file should I want to keep it afterwards.

Cheers

Hi,

You may want to install Debugging tools for Windows (http://www.microsoft.com/whdc/devtools/debugging/default.mspx) then run dumpchk against the the minidump created when the BSOD happened. These are normally stored in c:\WINDOWS\Minidump

This will indicate which driver windows suspected caused the BSOD

Hi,

Given this forum is mainly used by people with DVB cards, most of us use a HTPC.

Unless you are comfortable with PCs and are happy to spend a fair bit of time learning and tweaking your HTPC stick with an appliance box. If you realty just want to plug something in a use it, a HTPC is not for you.

On the upside however, a HTPC gives you a lot of flexibility.

Why just have a dual turner when for an extra $100-200 or so you can have four or five. When you run out of storage on a HTPC, just go down the local computer store and for about $200 you can add an extra 500gb. A HTPC is not only for TV but for all your media, music, videos, dvds, photos etc

I am not sure where you got 1300.00 for a HTPC, I think I could build one for less than 700.00 plus the DVB cards now that there are motherboards with decent on board graphics cards.

To directly answer your other question

1/ How long to start up, Standby probably less than 90sec, Hibernation, maybe 60. How long does it take your desktop to come out of standby? A HTPC would probably be quicker as there is less garbage installed.

2/ Extra functions. In addition to above, automatically detecting commercial breaks and skipping over them for starters

3/ Power, I have not measured this, but I cannot see in standby it would draw much more power than any other device. I guess it is a switchmode power supply which may draw more.

Anyway the you need to answer the first question

Cheers
Darren

I am not sure if this is the exact problem but.....

I get this pretty regularly with ABC, below is the XML data for where it seemed to go out of whack yesterday, a quick look at it shows a overlap of 4 minutes between "real chinese" and "Himalaya With Michael Palin"

In the attached screenshot, it would appear play school is at the correct time, but Himalaya is not lined up with 11:00am as it should, however the recording overlay is at the correct time. So it does look like a source issue.

I still use an old program called myHTPC, it has not been developed in years, but still works pretty well and uses very little resources. By default it uses WMP as the player, but I have it launching ZoomPlayer.

There is a download here http://meedio.com/myhtpc/download/myHTPC-setup.exe

or you could try its replacement Meedio here

Hi,

I am pretty sure the twinhan remotes (ard receivers) are just keyboard emulators, so make sure you have selected the keyboard input in HIP and also make sure that the twinhan remote handler (winmanager.exe) is not running.

Do a search here on winmanager and have a read

For me this version of tsfilesource is much quick in ZP, I have not tried tsreader. The big thing for me is being able to play a file in ZP that is still being recorded, and have ZP update the duration dynamically. TSFileSource is the only one I have found so far that will do it (thanks Bear!)

No I did not compile one, I had a recent svn, probably from 2 or three weeks back. It had the 2.2.0.9 version and no beta details. The size was 512k and it was dated the 13/3/07.

I did read that they are making quite a few changes to the TS subsystem of tvenginev3, from what I gathered it looked as if they where moving away from tsfilesource to their own tsreader/writer

Thanks for the updated ini.

Hi All,

I installed and registered the version of tsfilesource (2.2.0.9 from 13/3/07) that comes with mediaportal and tested this. It seems to work fine with two files that where showing the issue.

DW2 timeshifting still works too (assuming it is using the new filter).

I guess I'll keep an eye on it and see if there are any other issues.

Once again, thanks calvi for your work on tuning comskip.

Cheers
Darren
