I just wanted to say, that I had a OS disk failure over the weekend, so I did a fresh install of 8.10rc1. Did the apt-get update/upgrade rebuilt 2 of my previous 5 MD's. After the MD's were built, I hit the button for TV and it went to the Grey/Brown Terra theme screen, no images yet, and the the router reloaded. Ok. So after everything came back, I tried again, this time it completed but took 38 seconds to get to the ''Please wait" screen, then another 2 seconds to view TV. So I selected "Off" from the LMCE menu, and tried again, same wait, this time it came up, played for about a minute, then the router reloaded again.
Not sure what is going on. I viewed the backend logs, nothing abnormal there, did not yet get to view the frontend logs on the MD. This particular MD is a Zotac ION running Vdpau Slim. On my LG50" plasma. Audio/Video over HDMI.
Now the 2nd MD is using an older nvidia card on a 27" SD TV. Video over S-Video audio from sound card to red/white on back of tv with 1/8" (3.5,mm) stereo jack to red/white, and it does not take as long to load, about 20 seconds. This machine is running normal xv in settings, and uses CPU+ for MythTV. I noticed this one does not cause the router to reload when I use it, and the wait is somewhat less for Live TV to actually start playing, shaves off about 10 to 12 seconds.
The wife needed to watch Hell's Kitchen, so I have not tested it since last evening. I however do not watch Hell's Kitchen, so I went back into the bedroom where I have a 32" LCD TV hooked up to a Foxconn mini PC not yet supported hardware wise in 8.10 running Mythbuntu 10.04, connected to the core's backend. All I had to do was allow the core backend to update the DB schema on the mythbuntu box, and bam. Right into watching live tv. So I power the little machine completely off, then power it on, and it boots directly into mythtv. It takes about 30 seconds for it to talk to the backend, and present me with a screen, I select "Watch TV" and again it goes right in no issues. Other than not instantly presenting me with the Terra Front Page of the theme.
Here is where it gets a little strange.
So after I watch the mythbuntu box for a little, wife comes back for bed. So I power it back down, and go out into the living room. Click on "TV" button from menu, and bang, the router reloads again. Ok, so I wait, and the next time I hit the button, it goes into the Live TV in like 5 seconds which is almost 35 seconds faster.
So whatever it is, it is random with the common ground of a router reload.
I need to dig into the logs. The only thing running out of the ordinary that I see, is mythtv_setup.pl seems to be running and getting hung up. Not sure why this runs at all after initial install, but its just an observation.
Hope to remedy this by digging into logs, but figured I would post my latest experiences.
