Thanks Dennis.

That fixed it.


Which version?

I'm running the standard 260 driver.


I get major graphic corruption on the MD's when I switch on any version of deinterlacing with ul2 overlay. Black areas of the screen pixelate and "light comes though". It looks almost as if the screen saver is showing though. It is the same graphic corruption that you get when you use ul2 alpha blending with composite turned off. Ul2 alpha works fine with deinterlacing but the screen tearing is unbearable.

I have no idea where to start debugging this.

Fully updated 1004 with nvidia ION MD via 46" 1080p TV.
My Setup:

Any help would be appreciated.



Users / Video playlist crashes xine on MD
« on: October 31, 2011, 06:29:00 am »

When I try to use a video playlist (even just play all) on my MD xine dies when it tries to change track. If you change the track manually it works fine. Video playlists work fine on the core. Audio playlists work fine on both. This is happening on 1004, I tried it on a 810 beta 2 install and it happens there also.

It looks like it might be a locking issue based on these messages from the xine-player.log

Code: [Select]
Deadlock problem.  37  Going to reload and quit <0xafdffb70>
Terminating Xine_Player: watchdog detected hard deadlock, seems soft reload failed

Logs taken from track change.

dcerouter.log (core)

xine-player.log (MD)

That is defiantly the issue. I reverted my restarted. Naturally no media, checked if the drives were online as suggested and they weren't. Enabled them and did a quick reload and had media.

What causes the drives to go offline and is there a fix?

The drives don't unmount as all the media is still playable via the search function or saved playlists. You just cant see anything the media browser. If you start the core by itself media is visible. As soon as you start a MD it disappears. If you restart the core without restarting the MD the media shows up again.

Rename /usr/pluto/bin/ to something else. Now the core can be restarted without the MD rebooting enabling media to show up.
Thanks merkur2k for directing me to the file.

I will still search for a fix.

An update.

The core crashed (rare occurrence) so I had to hard reset it. As it was a hard reset the MD's didn't restart and as a result I can see the media correctly on all devices. So time pressure is off as it will do for the party. This is defiantly not a fix, just a very dodgy workaround that I couldn't recommend to anyone due to the risks of data loss etc.

I look forward to finding a solution.

Another weird one. I am only running my media on internal drives on the core/hybrid, no nfs or samba shares. When the core is started the media shows up correctly in the media browser and on all orbiters (web, ipad, iphone, cisco 7970).
When I start my diskless media director the media disappears on everything. It looks like it might be a graphics glitch as where the drives and file names usually show is replaced by a black box. All the media is available through the search functionality.

I was able to fix this previously by taking advantage of a bug that enabled me to restart the core while leaving the MD's on. This bug has now been fixed and the MD's restart with the core so I am stuck without media.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, either a fix or in the short term a way to restart the core while leaving the MD's on. I am time limited on this one as I am having a party on the weekend so need media, if I cant get it fixed or have a workaround by Wednesday I will have to rush an 810 install which I really, really don't want to do.

Thanks Thom,

Finally got some time to get things up and running. I had to do a dist upgrade (rather than a normal upgrade) for the changes to take effect now working well.

Not signal related as it happens in the myth menus as well eg: recordings.

I couldn't find an existing bug so added ticket #1258.


Users / Mythtv random key presses [Solved]
« on: September 26, 2011, 02:11:33 pm »
Hi People,

I recently upgraded my 1004 install and now mythtv randomly and frequently presses enter. So while watching livetv you get frequent "bookmark saved/cleared" messages, you can't use the guide because it changes channel almost straight away. It also happens in the recordings making it almost impossible to navigate. This only happens in mythtv, there is no problem with the overlay UI.

The problem occurs on both the core and the MD's.

I have no idea where to start to diagnose this. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I would like to try avoid re-installing. Is there a way to just rebuild the mythtv portion of it?

1004 install
Quad core hybrid core
Asrock 330HT Media directors
iPhone/iPAD orbiters.

I have the same problem.

Did you find a solution for this?

The only thing I can think of that I did recently was install kubuntu-restricted-extras

Yes I am aware of the difference between signal strength and quality. I will be trying your test as soon as I can borrow an indoor antenna.

I am also testing a usb power issue tomorrow. Either way I will post my results.

Thanks for the replies.

All the tuners have been tested individually and all happily record 2 shows on the same multiplex. So I know the tuners are fine.

As far as the booster goes. I know it not the problem as I only purchased it as a potential solution. So most of my testing has been done without it. Our signal quality here is excellent, to the point that analog TV is flawless across all channels and you never get pops or clicks in the sound with digital. For reference its a 1 in 4 out booster.
