Thanks for your interest
Is the 'stutter' you see continuous or does it only happen briefly and then go away?
It only happens on pan/zooms of VDR recordings as described by colin above. It sometimes happens once every 5-10 seconds, sometimes a bit more offen. What I have noticed, it offen happens at the same place in the recording. Meaning: I set an cutmark with VDR (with the remote 0 key) and then jump back to that (with the key 7) and then start replay at the same place everytime I test it. And then it stutters at the same place.
As soon as the movie is not moving much there is no stuttering anymore. As soon as it pans/zooms - it is back.
If I did not mention this before - Audio is always playing without any disturbance ! even while video is stuttering
I did not yet find any errors in syslog or /var/log/pluto/*VDR* saying that there were problems with the movie. And as said - with EasyVDR they all play smooth.
Maybe I could provide you with a piece of a recording that has got the problem and you can try it to see if it has something with my recordings to do ?
hmm, did not have time to watch a DVD yet - so I can't say if it also happens when watching DVD's.
Does this only happen in vdr? ie if you play a DVD or a ripped DVD is playback ok?
It also happens if I replay the same recording with the Video part of LinuxMCE.
Sorry to ask this if you've already mentioned it somewhere but what is your hardware setup?
It is listed in my signature and here :http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/User:Viking
So my instinct tells me that your hardware is probably not suitable in some way...
Might be. You mean - unsutable for LinuxMCE - as the same hardware works with EasyVDR.
Colin has the same problem, so maybe we should try to find out what is different to the rest of the systems working ...
Could it be that it has to do with IRQ sharing ?
What IRQ's are shared on your system ?
