Recording Service - Two Channels, same multiplex


Recommended Posts

Any pointers to what I've configured wrong with recording service.


The problem - With DVBViewer running on its own and no Recording Service installed, I can record two channels of the same UK Freeview Multiplex.


Once I've installed the Recording Service, the ability to record two channels from one Multiplex fails. From what I can see from the log file, its reporting 'No Hardware'


I have one PCTV 291e HD USB dongle.


Am I missing a setting in the Recorder config that enables two channel recording from the same MUX?


Any pointers appreciated! Log files for pre recorder install and post recorder install attached.

It's a known bug in Recording Service 1.33.2 caused by a faulty device detection. It only affects certain (EMPIA based) DVB-T devices.


You can fix it by stopping the RS, deleting the line


    <entry name="LowBandWidth">1</entry>


in the file svchardware.xml (see configuration folder, config sub-directory) and re-starting the RS.
