Hi all, I'm having some rather annoying problems with live tv that I tried to solve myself but had no luck so far. The thing is my live tv stream "picks up" some kind of stream errors while copying files from one hard drive to another and similar activities and tvserver rarely can recover from those errors and I have to stop the timeshift and start again to get clean picture. In the logs it says discontinuity errors but they are not, I repeat, NOT caused by bad signal..
I have two hard drives and tried swaping them (they are each masters on their channels 2 and 3), tried putting timeshift folder on the first, then on the second but no luck there... My dvb-t is USB stick so I thought it was that but I can reproduce it while watching satellite as well :(
the sad thing is everything worked fine until couple of weeks ago.. Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you..
