I seem to always get a jpg file created just sometimes it is 0KB. The settings are in the client config but thumbs are created by TVServerThe client will not generate thumbs for recordings. The server sometimes does, but this seems to not be reliable. I occasionally find jpg files in the recording folder, but not always.
Anyway I have tried to find out how thumbs are generated a few times without any replies I can see there are jpg files in the recordings folder (the ones created by mtn.exe) then there are also other thumbs (small and large) in the the thumbs folder in client folder. I am not clear which ones are used by client and how / when they get created
I do have a client I use rarely but I have set that to use shares and not RTSP but the problem occurs on the single seat machine I use all the time.Do you use rtsp or SMB for multiseat TV?
Not sure what you mean... Does MyVideos force building thumbs then? As above this is single seat but I will delete the jpgs in recording folder and thumbs directory and then add the recordings folder to MyVideos tonight to see what happens.The only other way I can think to test this is to share the recordings folder over the network, add it to 'my videos' and browse it there. If the thumbs are created, then there is no problem. Please do this to check the files! However, you will still not see the thumbs in 'recorded tv', and this would be normal expected behaviour.
Obviously not a huge issue just would be nice to get this working. Would rather have this broken and a really quick stable MP.One of the team members is currently looking into this problem at the moment, so please bear with us.
Will help where I can, I would love to go through the code but simply don't get the time. If someone could point me in the direction of where the code is I can try and work it through from there.However, your testing and clarification of your setup would be appreciated.
I thought the client was generating thumbs...I am getting a bit confused. On the one hand you say that thumbs are generated by client. On the other hand, you say you are using single seat
Edit: Ahhh think I may have confused you slightly... I am talking about the MP Client here as opposed to a client machine....
BBC HD and ITV HD are both transmitted in H264 but are on DVB-S not DVB-S2.Also, your system spec shows a pinnacle 7010ix TV card, which as far as I know is DVB-S, not DVB-S2 - how is it receiving HD h264 content?
