    Think I found out what is causing this.
    Yesterday I tested if this is linked to buffer-file change. It actually is in some way.

    As soon as the max. buffer size is reached, skip forward or any other buffer related task doesn't work anymore.

    What happens if the max. buffer size is reached?



    When the Tv-Server starts, it creates buffer files in the following sheme:
    live1-0.ts.tsbuffer
    live1-0.ts.tsbuffer1.ts
    live1-0.ts.tsbuffer2.ts
    live1-0.ts.tsbuffer3.ts

    The longer you watch, the more it creates, for me it ends at the 6th (max. buffer size) file, once the "7th" is created, it overrides the 1st one.
    This is the exact moment when forwarding/skipping stops working.

    Muldini

    Oh yes, sometime I have exactly the same problems.

    It did not help you, but it's good to hear, that I am not the only man with this kind of problem ;-)

    Hey Roy,

    Have you had any luck tracking down the source of this problem? It's really makes timeshifting risky bussiness! ;-) Is this loaded in Mantis Or are the devs aware of or experiencing this?

    Cheers,
    Rhys

    Seems fixed in latest SVN. Therefor a really big thanks!

    Can you tell me what "min buffer files" and "max buffer files" mean? I left it to standard 6 and 20, it creates 6 and starts overwriting the first one then.

    Also, what benefits would a different file size give?

    Regards, Muldini
