NTSC closed captions

Currently vdr does not decode NTSC cc. Someone pointed that without a working closed captions decoder for EIA608/EIA708 it won't work. Will support be added for NTSC cc ?

watching DVDs

Are there any good ways to watch a dvd with vdr.

I tried the dvd plugin, but the menus don't seem to work properly.

Or has anyone created any sort of script that would "import" a dvd into the vdr recordings?
Meaning, creating the vdr info file and transcoded the vob file into a ts file.

Josce

vdr 2.2.0 + dvbapi plugin + libdvbcsa (Raspi)

Hello.

I'm trying to build oscam + dvbapi for vdr-2.2.0 on Raspi 2 (wheezy).

It compiles fine using command

     make clean
     make -j4 LIBDVBCSA=1

and installs also OK.

But when running the vdr, it fails as:

vdr: /usr/local/lib/vdr/libvdr-dvbapi.so.2.2.0: undefined symbol:
_Z21set_even_control_wordPvPKh

The dvbcsa library is linked OK, so I wonder what might cause this.

Unreliable shutdown

This is not strictly a vdr problem, but was wondering if others have 
seen it and have suggestions for a solution.

I have an Intel Atom/Fedora based system running the latest vdr and 
about 20% of the time when either the "Power OFF" remote command is 
issued or the shutdown command (shutdown -h now), is run, the box will 
go into a sleep/standby mode, rather than a complete power down.

When it does this, the box will not wake up for the next programmed 
timer, nor from pushing the power button. A complete power down is 
required to restore operation.

The same thing happens on my Core2 Quad/Centos desktop machine, except 
that sleep occurs about 60% of the time.

Is there a better shutdown command to guarantee full power down?

Regards,

Richard

Transcode SD to mpeg4

I'm wondering if anyone has created a plugin to automatically transcode SD recordings to H264 ? 
I'm now using Kodi on the Raspberry pi as frontend to vdr + VNSI plugin, it's pretty good aside from live HDTV which can still stutter (but version dependent, so I expect will be fixed soon).

I have about 3TB of SD recordings and could probably save at least 1.5TB if converted to H264, rather than buy & power more hard disks.
I did a couple of "manual" test conversions using ffmpeg, and they play OK, vdr reindexes automatically when it finds the index missing.

ffmpeg -i 001.vdr -vcodec h264 -threads 2 -acodec mp3 -f mpegts 00001.ts

The plugin should:
a) Do a conversion automatically after recording, nice'd
b) check it was error free (ie success code from ffmpeg or whatever)
c) delete mpeg2 file if OK, cleanup if not, log.
d) ideally force a reindex
e) Option to iterate through old recordings, testing for mpeg2 and converting as required in the background. Handle .ts and old .vdr files.
f) Join old 2GB max sized files before creating smaller H264 version .ts.
g) Nice to have - option to enable function or not
Need to handle various flavours of stream too, subtitles etc.

I've seen scripts like the one below, but the author reports some issues and obviously not a complete solution.
Maybe vdrrip and/or a noad type approach could be used as the basis?
#!/bin/bash profile="-vpre hq" quality="-crf 26" # constant quality prefix="nice" # "nice ionice -c3" for i in "$ <at> "; do [ -r "$i" ] || continue output="$(basename "$i" | cut -f 1 -d .).$profile.mp4" [ -e "$output" ] && continue $nice ffmpeg -i "$i" -acodec copy -scodec copy -threads 0 \ -vcodec libx264 $profile $quality "$output" done

how to limit the number of simultaneous channels being decoded

Dear,

My satellite provider (M7/TV Vlaanderen) has an artificial limitation on its smartcards which makes the card lock up if you try to decode more than 4 channels at once.

I'm perfectly fine with that, as 4 channels should be enough (and multiple overlapping recordings on the same channel still count as 1!). But because I never watch live TV, the epgsearch plugin creates all my timers automatically. So I cannot easily prevent it from locking up if I'm not at home to manually check the created timers. Most channels (PIDs) are in the same transport stream, which means I never get 'conflicts'.

I've asked on IRC and it was suggested to ask for a new feature to the epgsearch plugin. Before I look into that further (my C skills date back to 1999...), I'd like to poll the maillist to hear additional opinions. For example, perhaps it would make sense to have such a setting in VDR itself to hard-limit the number of simultaneous recordings on weaker hardware/slow disks, and trigger conflicts as well. Or perhaps there is still another workaround?

Best regards,

Pascal Vandeputte

Using a rasberry pi as vdr client

Hi

I want to use raspberry pi as if it were a graphic card : I mean the dvb 
devices on a PC style server, IR receiver preferably on the server too 
(rpi and server in the same room)

I don't know how to configure it, there is apparently 2 ways of doing it 
(from what I understood)

+ xineliboutput with vdr-fbfe (rpi plugin is closed source ? the one 
here : 
http://www.vdr-portal.de/board18-vdr-hardware/board98-arm-co/118588-rasperry-pi-xine-plugin/)

+ streamdev and rpihddevice (which additional plugins ?)

The second way seems to be more complicated to configure, and I'm not 
sure it suits my project, but the rpihddevice is well maintained though.

The first solution is perhaps much straightforward and includes a media 
player (?)

Could you tell me more please ?

Damien

Simultanous recording doesn't work

After upgrade of VDR I can't simultanously record from 2 different 
programs on DVB-T tuner. Even from the same MUX, and additionally  I've 
got dual tuner. Log doesn't show any error, no conflicts.
It's "timer 1 (62 2038-2155 'Na dobre i na złe - odc. 601" which didn't 
start, because " timer 1 (61 2033-2355 'Piłka nożna " is currently 
recording.

Hello
Since upgrade of VDR I have many lines in log like this:
May 24 19:58:50 wuwek vdr: [2423] ERROR (lirc.c,43): 
/var/run/lirc/lircd: Nie ma takiego pliku ani katalogu
I suspect it's some misconfiguration in config, because I don't use lirc 
(in fact my VDR instance is headless so no remote at all is connected)
What should I do?

No sound using radio plug-in after update to VDR 2.2

Hello All,

I updated from VDR 1.42 with radio plug-in 0.9.1 running on Debian 
Wheezy to VDR 2.2 with radio plug-in 1.0.0 on Debian Jessie. For output 
I am using the TT S2-6400 dvbhddevice with drivers from 
http://linuxtv.org/hg/~endriss/media_build_experimental

Using VDR 1.42 the radio plug-in worked fine. With VDR 2.2 and radio 
plug-in activated the sound stops whenever I switch to a radio channel.
If the plug-in is deactivated everything works as expected.

Has anyone else observed this problem? Is there a known solution?

Best regards

Matthias
