Recording Service - Two Channels, same multiplex

Recommended Posts

godmanchester

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.

      DVBWiewer Recording Service Linux / Wine
       
       
      Hardware:
      Ubuntu 18.04 server 1GB RAM 1 Core FSTAB: mount NFS recordings  from NAS to /mnt/recordings Name: dvbsrv  
       
      Software:

      We need wine (32bit version), Xvfb (short for X virtual framebuffer) for
      running the recording service without screen, cabextract for extracting
      the needed DirectX file (ksproxy.ax) and nfs-common for mounting the
      recording share.
       
      dpkg --add-architecture i386 && apt update apt install wine32 xvfb cabextract nfs-common  
       
      Software Wine:
       
      We create a user which is running the Recording Service.
      In the users home we store the needed Windows software parts in the subdirectory "sw".
      SSH to the Ubuntu server as root or become root with "sudo su -".
       
      # create user w/o passwd adduser dvb su - dvb mkdir sw && cd sw wget http://download.microsoft.com/download/E/E/1/EE17FF74-6C45-4575-9CF4-7FC2597ACD18/directx_feb2010_redist.exe cabextract directx_feb2010_redist.exe -F dxnt.cab cabextract dxnt.cab -F ksproxy.ax  
      Files to be stored in /home/dvb/sw:

      Config from Windows DVBWiewer:
       
      This step is optional. You can configure the Recording Service without these.
      I copied the file from the Windows installation to keep my settings.

      Setup:
       
      Start Xming on Windows client. On Linux Desktop you usually already have a X server running. If using Putty, configure it to have X forwarding enabled. Putty (or ssh -X) to dvbsrv as root.

      There's a question I cannot answer myself.
      I have two physical servers in one subnet with recording services installed (ports are changed to be different) .
       
      DVBViewer on server 1 sees channels from local cards without recording service and channels from recording service on server 1 and 2.
      DVBViewer on server 2 sees channels from local cards without recording service and channels from recording service on server 2. But not from recording service on server 1.
      Logs show no tries of connection.
       
      Why?

      Hallo.
       
      Ich habe in letzter Zeit immer häufiger Aufnahmen per Recording Service, die als fehlerfrei protokolliert werden (->.log), die sich nach dem Demuxen mit ProjectX als nicht fehlerfrei erweisen. Wiedergabe der TS-Datei stockt auch an den entsprechenden Stellen.
       
      Empfang ist DVD-C mit Cinergy HTC USB XS (Treiber: 5.9.1202.0). Keine Änderungen der Hardware. Keine Aktivitäten am PC während der Aufnahme.
       
      Versuchsweise habe ich mal auf eine ältere RS-Version (1.30.1.0) gewechselt - leider ohne Erfolg.
       
      Hier die entsprechenden Logs vom RS:
       
      bzw. von ProjectX:
