Here are the logs from the client and server. Yesterday there was a Picture Freeze by almost 30 seconds, after that it went on as if I had pressed pause. But that was the only statue in the evening. I hope you'll find something.
Thanks for the logs - quite interesting.
Next time you have one of the long pauses, can you also attach the TV server logs please - I need to see what is happening at both ends to understand the situation. In your 30s pause situation, TsReader appears to be waiting for a timeshift buffer file data read from the server to complete, but I can't tell from the log what the cause might be.
Do you have anything else (other than TV server) running on the server PC, e.g. anything that might generate a lot of network or disk activity ?
The good news is the TsReader logs don't have any continuity or sync errors, so the data integrity looks OK now
I can see a few issues inside TsReader that are showing up in the log occasionally (due to the different way the timeshift buffer files are behaving with the latest TsWriter), so I'm having a think about that at the moment....
Nothing I can think of. As far as I can tell from the logs, any picture problems are probably due to video data not arriving quickly enough occasionally (not because of continuity errors).The funny thing is also that sooner were the pixelation on the bottom of the screen, now they are at the top. Does that mean something?
What happens when a video decoder runs low on data etc. is going to depend on how it's designed to handle error situations, so it's impossible to give a general answer.
