Issue with recording 5.1 surround on Cmore

Recommended Posts

bw76

Hi,

 

I hope someone can help me out with this very frustrating issue. Cmore channels switch back and forth between 2.0 Stereo and 5.1 Surround. If I want to record a program with 5.1 and it starts a little earlier (because I dont want to miss the beginning), and the program before is in 2.0 stereo. The 5.1 recording is lost for the entire program. How can this be? There is no problem if the channel outputs 5.1 when recording starts - even if sometime during the recording, the channel switches to 2.0 Stereo. I have tried different codecs, but it doesnt seem to help. Is there a setting which Im missing?

 

I have choosen the AC3 version of the channel and I also allow for All sound channels.

 

Hope someone can help me out.

Thanks in advance.

Thank you.

 

I'm not sure how familiar you are with DVBViewer, so apologies if you know all this already.

 

You could check a few things:

 

1. In DVBViewer, click Settings -> Options and select the General Tab. Check that you have "Prefer AC3 for file playback."

 

2. What does your status bar for your audio show? (In DVBViewer, click View->Show Status Bar). If will tell you what type of audio is playing back - AC3 or normal stereo)

 

If things are exactly as you describe, and as a pure guess, it might be your audio decoder is not decoding 5.1, so it is most likely your audio decoder settings. What decoder are you using, what audio system do you have and how are you feeding the audio from the PC to the audio system?

 

You audio settings can be found by clicking Settings -> Options and select DirectX. You then click on the Audio tab.

Hi again,

 

Thank you very much for answer to me. I think I'm very familiar with DVBViewer but all info is always welcome. Maybe the issue is a basic issue, like in this case.

I've good news, I found my stupid problem :blush: DVBViewer is correctly configure to play 5.1 and my sound system is well setting up. I usually use another program to play the recordings or even I transcode them. Then, the problem was a combination of programs that weren't able to handled the surround audio if the track starts with stereo format and not seeing that the 5.1 track was the second and not the default one (which starts like a stereo track and change to surround mode when it's needed. Something I've never seen before).

Sorry for waste your time and thank you again, really. :)

      Hallo Griga,
      ich möchte ein meinem Programm neben dem CHANNEL-NAME auch die Quelle( SAT/Internet...HLS Deutsch....)  einer Aufnahme anzeigen.
      In einem TIMER-RECORD habe kann ich hierfür den Node  <CHANNEL ID> zerlegen und benutzen.
      In einem RECORDING-RECORD habe ich nur den Node >CHANNEL>xxxx</CHANNEL>
      Das reicht leider für meine Zwecke nicht aus.

      <recording id="98" charset="255" start="20181021195500" duration="001000">
      <channel>Das Erste</channel>
      <channel ID>1234567890</channel ID>
      <file>
      d:\_aufnahmen\2018-10-21_19-59-23_das erste_tagesschau.ts
      </file>
      <title>Tagesschau</title>
      <image>2706243175_SM.jpg</image>
      </recording>
       
      Vielleicht kannst du diesen Node optional beim Aufruf hinzufügen:
       
      ....://localhost:8089/api/recordings.html?utf8=1&amp;images=1;channel_id=1
       
       
      vg & Dank

      I have many recordings in both MediaPortal and DVBlink that I would like to import. I have successfully imported from Mediaportal to DVBLink but how can I import to DVBViewer media service? Is there any way to do this? I have been contemplating to change the XML file names to TXT and do the import tool from the desktop client. Any ideas?

      The listview used for EPG search results allows sorting up/down by clicking headers.
      The sorting appears to sorta work - clicking 'Start' for example, attempts to sort by date + time, resulting with listview showing correct data.
       
      However, clicking each individual EPG entry in the sorted list results in different dates/program names being displayed.
       
      How to reproduce:
       
      1) Search for anything in EPG
      2) Try sorting by start time (for example)
      3) Try clicking various results and compare "Event" title and time/date with the ones shown in "Details" tab below.
       
      Example: 
       

       
      Here, the EPG is searched, and sorted by start time, ascending.
      The search order looks correct, but clicking the entry shows  completely different results in Details.
      The "hover over" content however looks OK (it is the program in question as noted by Event Title and description.
       
      EDIT: There appear to be other sort order issues (i.e. sorting by station name doesn't appear to alphabetically sort it, either), but I think incorrect metadata issue needs to be addressed first.

      I thought I was crazy when after 6.0.4.1 upgrade the 'record' button on toolbar changed colors from gray to red, but now I see there's another problem related to this (intended?) change.
       
      When channel is recording, a red record icon overlay is visible in taskbar.
       
      However, the menubar record icon is gray.
       
      I'm not sure what the point was of changing the button on menu (it got inverted after 6.0.4.x update), so it should either go back to original gray/red when idle/recording OR the recording indicator icon in taskbar should be changed accordingly. now its not consistent and confusing to the user.

      Hi,
       
      soeben habe ich den SAT>IP-Viewer im Appstore entdeckt und Ihn direkt gekauft. (Leider gibt es keine Testdownload)
      Was mir während des ersten Tests sofort auffiel ist das sobald eine Aufnahme gestartet wird kein Empfang anderer Sender mehr möglich zu sein schein.
      Mein Sat>ip Server (Megasat MEG-8000 Sat>ip Server 3) hat 4 bzw. 8 Clientkanäle. Es sollte also doch möglich sein, andere Kanäle während eine Aufnahme anzusehen.
      Ist das nun ein Bug oder eine beabsichtigte Funktionseinschänkung? Die Fehlermeldung "Sender konnte nicht eingestellt werden" ist jedenfalls wenig hilfreich.
      Danke im Voraus für eine Antwort.
