    This patch has done a lot of good things to my TV-Server, but what really helped for me to get live tv working, was disabling EPG Grabbing while timeshifting/recording. I had a lot of these errors before, and live tv would occasionally freeze.

    Watching live tv right now, signal level stable at 96% and quality at 100%. 12 million ts packets transferred, and no discontinuities :)

    We record almost any tv we watch, and I only saw the above error while timeshifting, not when watching recorded tv. For the same reason I haven't really bothered investigating issues for live tv being so crappy.

    My point: A lot of things can be the reason for a bad tv-experience, and this patched helped for some of them (stuttering HD-TV). So a great :D to miroslaw!

    miroslav22: your Patch isnt working for me. If i change the Files, the TVServer-Config isnt able to open, the Clients cant see the TVService. I attached the Logs, would be nice if you could help me - my Girlfriend is going to kill me if TV ist stuttering this Way... ;)

    P.S.: MultiSeat with an WHS as TVServer could not be the Reason for that, or? :mad:

    Hi,

    Which base version of MediaPortal are you using? Are you sure you've used the files for the correct version?

    Would you be able to post the logs from your tvserver log folder? thanks

    It looks like you might not have replaced all the files. Make sure you are using the archive "StreamingDiskIOFix-V3-Binaries (1.2.0 Alpha).zip " from the first post. Also make sure tvservice is stopped before you replace the files or some of them won't be copied.

    In the tswriter logs, you should see new lines when you tune a channel. These arn't in your logs. They should look similar to:

    DiskRecorder::Write() - Throttling to 1880 bytes
    DiskRecorder::Write() - Throttling to 1880 bytes
    DiskRecorder::Write() - Throttling to 1880 bytes
    DiskRecorder::Write() - Throttling to 3760 bytes
    DiskRecorder::Write() - Throttling to 7000 bytes
    DiskRecorder::Write() - Throttling to 16000 bytes
    DiskRecorder::Write() - Throttling to 32000 bytes (max)

    I tested first, changing all Files, that doesnt work, so i tested to change only a few Files - that might be the Reason. But if i change all the Files, the Config isnt startable, the TVService isnt reachable from Client-Side.

    Yes you cannot just replace some of the files unfortunately as the exports from the filters won't match what is expected. Could you try replacing all the files again and post new tvservice logs? :D
