vdr + rpihddevice + skinnopacity

hi,

I have the following problem:

when pressing "menu" with my Raspberry pi Lirc, VDR crashes:

Mar 31 13:51:09 vdrfe vdr: [2456] rpihddevice: [OpenVG] cannot allocate 
pixmap of 2804px x 781px, clipped to 2048px x 781px!
Mar 31 13:51:09 vdrfe vdr: [2469] rpihddevice: [EGL] failed to create 
pixel buffer surface: bad alloc!
Mar 31 13:51:09 vdrfe vdr: [2456] rpihddevice: [OpenVG] failed to create 
pixmap! (allocation failed)

setup:
- vdr 2.2.0
- raspberry pi current git
- skinnopacity 1.1.3 + the second version of skinnopacity remotetimers patch
- remotetimers v 1.0.1

I have set gpu_mem to 256M

With rpihddevice from git Mar 8th, no crashes, but I could not use 
accelerated OSD (the subtitles did not work).

I pulled the repository again about a week ago, and got accelerated osd 
working.  Yesterday the problem I described started, and I re-pulled the 
git, because it seemed there was a fix.  Not working.

When not using accelerated OSD, it works fine, but rendering subtitles 
takes so long that there is hardly time to read them.

select() problem seen with vdr-plugin-streamdev 0.6.1

Hi,

I'm seeing this strange problem that a select statement in the streamdev 
server is returning EBADF and then the streamdev server exits and refuse 
to accept more connections. This typically happens when trying to stream 
a specific channel. Trying to stream other channels does not exhibit 
this problem.

I can recompile code and try patches.

I've made simple and crude patch to make the streamdev server plugin a 
bit more fault tolerant. See attachment.

OS: FreeBSD-11-current
Driver: Wecamd (Same as what is in Linux 3.18)

BTW: Thank you for keeping VDR up to date!

raspberry pi media player with VDR

Hi

It doesn't seem that the rpihddevice plugin integrates a media player 
(as the xine plugin does). Is there a simple way to play video files 
using omxplayer or other within VDR ?

Thanks

Damien

I am in the process.  Using the instructions from
http://www.vdr-wiki.de/wiki/index.php/Kategorie:Raspbian_VDR_Streaming_Client_mittels_Streamdev_und_rpihddevice

It seems that concerning streamdev patches: not needed for streamdev.
And one hunk needs to be manually applied for remotetimers for 2.2.0

For some reason; skinnopacity + remotetimers seems to cause the menus
flash in and out.  Tried the latest tarball.  Now trying the git.  I
hope it works; I prefer the default skinnopacity over lcars.

yours,
         Jouni

Improved privacy on the VDR User Counter!

The VDR User Counter no longer requires you to enter an actual name, so you can register totally anonymously now.
Go to http://www.tvdr.de/counter.htm if you're using VDR and help us in finding out how popular VDR really is.

raspbian apt repo with up to date vdr packages?

I've been testing out VDR on a raspberry pi 2 with excellent result
using rpihddevice and am wondering if anyone know of any good APT
repository with up to date packages for VDR and plugins?

Am currently using raspbian which has VDR 1.7.28, so it's a bit behind.

IPTV Plugin - having trouble configuring

Hi all,

I've began playing with the IPTV plugin and just can't figure out some things.  I have VDR configured with a headless server running streamdev.  Works great with ATSC channels and the like.

I've installed IPTV plugin and added a vlc2iptv channel to my channels.conf and added the URL into the appropriate file.  The channel is Sky News.  I run VDR as root on my headless box.  I'm not getting any errors to indicate there is something wrong so I'm guessing its the 'can't run vlc as root' issue I'm encountering since the batch file vlc2iptv is launching it directly.  How can I get this to work?

Is there a better way to play streams then using vlc2iptv?   Perhaps someone can sure their free TV iptv channels.conf that don't use vlc2iptv so I can at least see if it works with streamdev properly?

The documentation on this plugin is sparse - not much available especially about the file format of the .conf file used by vlc2iptv, which I've had to guess at.

Hoping to get more info!

Thanks
Norm Dressler

Dummy Device PLugin

Hi,
I am attempting to get rid of my last functioning FF Card. I dont need it any more
as I have clients that connect via XVDR.
I tried to install the dummy device plugin but hit some problems:

Dummy device plugin is not available as a package for my ubuntu setup, therefore I need to compile it myself
Make was OK. But starting the plugin did not work:

Moved the .so to the correct directory changed permissions to 644.
I have the dummydevice version for VDR > V2.

Anyone any ideas?

Cheers Brian

VDR User Counter: now with map!

I have refurbished the VDR User Counter (see http://www.tvdr.de/counter.htm)
and added a map of all registered VDR users. You can now also enter the number
of VDRs you are using (default is '1' for existing entries).

I'm asking all registered users to please access their entries and verify the
"Location" (and adjust it as desired). By default the location is determined from
the IP number and may be way off. Please make sure you press the "Change"
button in the editing dialog to verify your location, even if you don't
adjust it!

Registered users have received an email upon registration, containing a link
to the page where they can edit their entry. If that link got lost, a new
one can be requested via the "Forgot your password?" function (see
http://www.tvdr.de/cgi-bin/vdr-counter.pl?action=forgot).

I would appreciate if many VDR users update their counter entries, or newly
register their VDRs.

Klaus

sub-titles on Arte

Hi,

There must be something wrong with my VDR-setup, I never see sub-titles
on Arte. This is my channel.conf line:

arte HD;ARD:11493:HC23M5O35P0S1:S19.2E:22000:5111=27:5112=deu <at> 3,5113=fra <at> 3,5117=mis <at> 3;5116=mul <at> 106:5114;5115=deu,5118=fra,5119=deu:0:10302:1:1019:0

How could I get sub-titles for this channel please?

TIA for any hints,
