Reception of 27.5W

Hi,

I'm trying to receive BBC-SATBACK from 27.5W. I surely won't go into any
decryption details here.

I can play *all* of the channels in the transponder in VLC via the "TS"
stream from vdr-streamdev.

In case of "PES" streams, however, I can only play the SD channels
(MPEG-2 audio & video), but none HD channels (H.264 video and AAC
audio). No data come in. A similar problem happens with vdr-xvdr: SD
channels work, HD channels don't.

This is what appears in the log:
Aug 16 14:22:50 [vdr] [11075] cAudioRepacker(0xC0): skipped 230 bytes
while syncing on next audio frame
Aug 16 14:23:06 [vdr] [11075] ERROR: no useful data seen within 10501304
byte of video stream

Could you guys please point me at what could cause this? Decryption is
apparently working given that TS streams work...

Thanks!

Which DVB-S / DVB-S2 cards are recommended?

Hello! I'm new to satellite systems, so I would like to buy a cheap
card, considering decrypting streams.

The question is about which hardware is recommended to run with VDR,
that can decode encrypted traffic

Thanks in advance!

vdr on arch linux, and on debian wiki

Hi All,

I have started 2 articles about VDR, one on the arch linux wiki, and one on the debian wiki. on the arch linux wiki, there are a lot of people who edit the article, but on debian i am the ony one.
I don't understand why. Could it be that vdr is a sensitive subject for debian? What are your thoughts about this?

https://wiki.debian.org/VDR?action=info
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php?title=Digitenne&action=history

Kind regards,
Cedric

VDR ISDB-T support

Hello everyone! I'm from Argentina, and up to last month I've been using VDR 1.7.262 with an ISDB-T USB adapter. It works really good, but the last week I've been trying to upgrade to VDR 2.2 and I've found a problem with ISDB-T cards: they are not supported.

As I'm really interested in using VDR, I was digging inside the code and found a partial solution for this problem: as ISDBT is the same as DVBT, I've changed the way delivery system is queried. My changes are applied in a cloned repo at github:

https://github.com/chrodriguez/vdr/commit/dadbca57c2dc55c1c53b4fa8f68b56728ab72ddd#diff-8fe0655a5feb333a97bf3a2a8b451546R1294

That's the only change I've made. Now I can enjoy my fresh upgraded VDR installation!!

I think a better refactor should be made, but for now it's working perfectly deployed as a docker container: https://registry.hub.docker.com/u/chrodriguez/vdr

Thanks for this wonderfull project! -- Lic. Christian A. Rodriguez <at> car_unlp

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.

I can not find anything connected with this using Google search, so it
must not be a common problem, but something in my setup maybe. Any ideas?

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
