Re: Forced boot once a day


I think I will modify my shutdown script. I thought VDR could care of this. However such a daily wakeup only
makes sense, when epgsearch's searchtimer is used. Without epgsearch such a wakeup is useless.
How can I compare the wakeup times in a bash script? A "0" is given when no timer is present?

Forced boot once a day

Hi!
I use epgsearch's searchtimer to record my favorite series.
But there could be a problem when using automatic shutdown
and wakeup. When there is no event in the current epg, the
searchtimer will not be updated any more. The shutdown script
will get no wakeup time, because there is no timer. The VDR will
do no wakeup, and no more searchtimer records will be done.
Maybe an option could be added to VDR to force a boot once a
day. When the next timer is later than a specific time, set the
wakeup time to this time. So you could make sure, that VDR is
booted once a day, and the searchtimer could be updated. No
searchtimer recording would be lost.

Thomas

delete recordings instead of renaming to .del?

Hi All,

After I have watched a show, I delete it within VDR. VDR immediately shows me there's now more free space on the disk. In reality, VDR has renamed the .rec directory to .del. Therefore the recording is not really gone, and still takes up space on my hard drive. After some time VDR removes all .del directories. Then the space is freed on the hard drive.

Is it possible to let VDR immediately remove the recording from the hard drive? How does VDR decide it's time to remove all the .del directories?

Kind regards,
Cedric

Problem with subtitles: not showing in HD channels

Hi,

VDR 2.06 (yavdr 0.50 distro) does not show subtitles in HD channels (Yle 
channels in Finland). In SD version of the same channels subtitles are 
working fine. TV shows subtitles fine.

I've tried HD softdevice and normally using xineliboutput. Various 
different settings but none have had any effect in this.

The card is TBS6285 and according to manufacturer's support this should 
not be a driver issue.

Any ideas what could be the problem and more importantly how to solve this?

Br, Pasi

[Announce] Permashift 1.0 - permanent timeshift in RAM (AKA live buffer)

Hello,

Permashift has been largely rewritten and is now published in version 1.0.
On popular demand, it does not do automatical disc recordings anymore, 
but records live TV to a RAM buffer which is used for rewinding or inclusion
in recordings.

Permashift needs a patch to the VDR (and is incompatible with the old patch!).
Patch, plugin and more information are available on the homepage:

http://ein-eike.de/vdr-plugin-permashift-english/

Ciao,
		Eike

cedarX on allwinnerA20, vdr-sxfe uses more CPU than mplayer

Hi All,

I have an olimex AllwinnerA20 board. I have used the following guide to enable cedarx:
https://www.olimex.com/forum/index.php?topic=3560.0
This works fine, I can now watch big bugs bunny and the sintel trailer in 1080p.

Next, I have played the same mpeg2 SD recording by both mplayer and vdr-sxfe. vdr-sxfe uses a lot more CPU than mplayer. (about 70% vs 14% <at> 600MHz)
When I look at the messages by vdr-sxfe, it see vdr-sxfe does use vdpau:

$ vdr-sxfe -f
vdr-sxfe 1.0.90-cvs  (build with xine-lib 1.2.1, using xine-lib 1.2.2)

How can I lower the PCU usage of vdr-sxfe?
I have seen a german guide to use cedarx and softhddevice, is this a better solution?

Debian, howto get the latest and greatest VDR (source) packages?

Hi All,

I have installed VDR on debian. This works OK, but the version of vdr in debian is a bit dated:
$ vdr -V
Aug 10 14:38:11.807 [general.debug] using new 1.7.11+ capture code
vdr (1.7.28/1.7.28) - The Video Disk Recorder
epgsearchonly (0.0.1) - Direct access to epgsearch's search menu
quickepgsearch (0.0.1) - Quick search for broadcasts
streamdev-server (0.6.0) - VDR Streaming Server
xineliboutput (1.0.90-cvs) - X11/xine-lib output plugin
conflictcheckonly (0.0.1) - Direct access to epgsearch's conflict check menu
sc (1.0.0pre-HG-29b7b5f231c8+) - A software emulated CAM
live (0.2.0) - Live Interactive VDR Environment
epgsearch (1.0.1) - search the EPG for repeats and more

I have tried to use  svn-buildpackage, as stated on the vdr wiki, but that gets me an even older version (vdr_1.6.0 and vdr_1.2.6)
http://www.linuxtv.org/vdrwiki/index.php/DEBIAN_Compiling_VDR_Source_Packages

How can I get, compile, package and install the latest versions on debian?

Kind regards,
Cedric

Solved: vdr-sxfe: select soundcard

Hi All,

I have figured out howto change the soundcard vdr-sxfe uses:
Sound via first soundcard:
$ vdr-sxfe --audio=alsa:hw:0,0
Sound via second soundcard:
$ vdr-sxfe --audio=alsa:hw:1,0

Hope this is useful for anyone,

Kind regards,
Cedric
