Strange behaviour of live TV (Media type 11)
« on: November 11, 2008, 11:26:43 am »
I've been trying to figure this out for quiet some time now without any success.
On the LMCE video you see the transition betwin actuall liveTV (watching directly thru the correct inputs on the tv/reciever/sat box etc.) and liveTV thru the lmce gui (with the lmce menu overlay) is instant. In my cars, on EVERY machine I've tried it on (3-4 differant machines..) it takes any where betwin 7-10 secs for the transition to accure.
Note that I'm talking about LiveTV as in media type 11 and not thru mythtv.
Any ideas ???

Thnx
Itsik

Hi Itsik,

So you are talking about switching the input on the TV from the Orbiter to display the live picture from a source such as a Sat box? Is that correct?

Yes Andrew.

When selecting liveTV you have the Xine Player piped directly to the pvr-150. if you pull the menu, you have an option on the left hand side called "direct a/v". Selecting this turns the tv and reciever to the inputs connected directly to the sat box (without lmce in the middle).
In the video it happened instantly while in my case it takes a good couple of secs. Same thing happenes when you hit the menu button in that state which should turn the TV and reciever back to the lmce inputs. This also takes around 7 - 10 secs.

Hmmm... well we do that on some of our systems here and it switch almost instantly. The only difference which I can see is that we are using VDR as opposed to MythTV (i guess you are using MythTV thats is)

yep, I'm using mythtv, but that is used in the video as well, so I doubt this has any thing to do with this ...
