On standard QPSK-channels everything is absolutly great without any prob here.
Also 8PSK-channels with NORMAL MPEG-2 signals (to be found on 23.5°) causes no problem.
But when trying to tune to an 8PSK-channel - even with full HD-signal as ANIXE or semi-HD like Pro7-HD or SAT1-HD - several different things at different times will happen:
- Sometimes ANIXE starts soon without buffer-probs.
- Next try take min. 15 seconds to minutes for picture/sound will become stable.
- Sometimes sound is lipsync - sometimes not
I can not reproduce this behavior !
Sometimes it is possible to switch to an HD-channel, sometimes not.
Means switching is OK - but no signal/quality !
Sometimes you can swith back to standard-channels - SOMETIMES NOT !
Most of the time DD seems to be freezed - the machine works as normal.
BUT beeing patient also helps here: After a few minutes DD disapears.
if it happens as described above, i can try to start DD as many times i like.
Works fine on normal channels but never there is signal on HD.
The only solution ist to shutdown the mach.ine
I mean a real shutdown with approx. 15 seconds or more pause !
A normal restart WON'T WORK !
Seems that all volrages on the board/power-supply must come down to zero to have a real reset....
If DD crashes it often remains in memory. Sometimes twice !
It it watchable with taskmanager.
When i try to start DD again the machine gets extremly slow.
CPU load then is always constant at 100%.
When i'm very patient (mouse is moving only every 5 seconds...) and trying to close DD it will somtetimes work - sometimes not.
Hey rel: Don't be mortally offended... But what the hell you are doing there with any kind of buffers or something else ?
Mostly all of the users in the german forum posted this unbeautyful behavior.
Another little prob what could help to find the failure:
This wonderful plugin named Largo-Switch (the working 'GreenButton' for DD) won't work anymore in V 1.4E.
When you start LargoSwitch the tool normally switches to a PREMIER-Portal-channel to get neccessary EPG information and then it switches back to the current one. Normally that takes only 1 to max. 3 seconds.
Now in V1.4E DD freezes immediatly when trying to switch to wanted channel.
BUT NOTHING ELSE HAPPENS ! Machine works as normal.
Then - when you try to close LS - also DD closes without any notice AND NO ERROR message.
That didnt happen up to V1.4D...
At last a bug that still worries many people:
Recording via Scheduler will sometimes affect in an empty file (0 bytes), only have video for a few seconds and / or no sound.
IMHO this could depend on starting the record before the card is completly initalized.
I can wath this specialy for cards with a 'slow' driver - such as TH1041 with driver 126.96.36.199 (there's a new one 188.8.131.52 available).
TT S-3200 or SS2 with WDM didnt have much probs....
