[When playing a recording]

I've since noticed that when SVDRP freezes while the progress bar is on
screen the clock of the current time shown under the bar stops counting,
although playback continues. Perhaps the OSD is freezing as well as
SVDRP?

Its possible that the VDR main thread is frozen for some reason, this 
will also freeze SVDRP connections. However, the watchdog timer should 
react on such situations, provide that you've enabled it. Normally, 
nothing should freeze the main loop for more than a few seconds.

Cheers,

Udo

Re: softdevice and epia tv-out problem with Xorg

Hi Stefan and thanks for your answer.
I have solved the problem starting softdevice in full screen.
But after started it without problems now I get:

[softdevice] A/V devices initialized, now initializing MPEG2 Decoder
X Error of failed request:  BadValue (integer parameter out of range for 
operation)
  Major opcode of failed request:  145 (MIT-SHM)
    Minor opcode of failed request:  3 (X_ShmPutImage)
      Value in failed request:  0x3ff
        Serial number of failed request:  250
          Current serial number in output stream:  251

I have seen that is another value in failed request: 0x33ff.
I have tried with OSDAlphablend value to 1 without luck.
What is the 0x33ff value related to?

Thanks.

So "-vo xv:full" worked.

Which are the startup options now ?
0x3ff = 1023 = 1024 - 11

Did you changed your X resolution via "ALT"+"CTRL"+"Keypad +" ?
can you show us the output of command xdpyinfo ?
Which osd_image size was reported in that case ?

ERROR: LIRC remote control thread xx won't end

Hi there, 
due to debuging purposes I set in 
void cThread::Cancel(int WaitSeconds)
WaitSeconds = 6000; 
between the waits  of 3 seconds I  syslog the message: "thread won`t end" . 

At vdr shutdown I get the (endless) error message :

[vdr]  ERROR: LIRC remote control thread xxx  won't end  
_until_ I pressed any key. 

If Cancel() kills a thread, it ends up with a Segfault mostly. 

Does anybody noticed this behavior to?

Maybe there must be another interrogation  of Running() in lirc.c 

regards Markus

It seems like it isn't specific to SVDRP anyway. I've rewritten boxstar
to use the remote plugin and it's still got the same problem: the
progress bar freezes, and VDR stops acting on keystrokes, but the video
carries on playing. I can "reset" it it by stopping and restarting xine,
which makes VDR go back to playing live TV; if I try to play the
recording again I find it has jumped forward by a large amount.

This is with VDR 1.4.1, vdr-xine 0.7.9 and xine-lib 1.1.2. I tried
upgrading to VDR 1.4.3 but that's a disaster, it crashes the DVB cards
as soon as Xine connects. vdr-xine is relatively old; I guess it needs
an overhaul, and it could even be the cause of the original problem. Is
there a newer "developer" version hidden away on a different site? The

FF card a/v sync + dvd plugin

Hi list,

I tested a dvd with softdevice and the audio stuttering problem did not 
occur.
With my FF-DVB card I can not watch a dvd and switch capters or use the 
jump feature of the dvd-plugin.
What do you think about this.
Perhaps this can be the same Problem with 
the dvd-plugin and the FF-DVB 
card a/v sync stuff?
Best regards
Halim Sahin

Xineliboutput with DirectFB

Hello,

has anyone gotten xineliboutput with DirectFB to work? I have got a Matrox G450 and got softdevice and mplayer working with dfb, but only xineliboutput produces a black/white fluttering picture where you can only guess that it is a vdr message (learning keys).
