UPDATE
This problem has been pinned down to systems that have either the Vista Media Center TV Pack 2008 or Windows 7 installed.


Overlapping recordings on the same fail because of a problem with subchannels.

Use case
* The TV Service is configured to pre-record for 5 minutes and post record for 15 minutes.

* Two records are scheduled back to back on the same channel:
Recording A BBC1 22:00 - 22:30 [Effective 21:55 - 22:45]
Recording B BBC1 22:30 - 23:00 [Effective 22:25 - 23:15]

Timeline
21:55 Time to record Recording A
21:55 TvService finds a free card and tunes to BBC1 - Recording A begins

22:25 Time to record Recording B
22:25 TvService finds a card that is already tuned to BBC1 and tries to create a new subchannel
22:25 Tune request fails (SubmitTuneRequest returns 0x01)
22:26 Time to record Recording B
22:26 TvService finds a card that is already tuned to BBC1 and tries to create a new subchannel
22:26 Tune request fails (SubmitTuneRequest returns 0x01)
...
... Repeated continuously until
...
22:44 Time to record Recording B
22:44 TvService finds a card that is already tuned to BBC1 and tries to create a new subchannel
22:44 Tune request fails (SubmitTuneRequest returns 0x01)

22:45 End Recording A
22:45 TvService fully releases the tuner (FreeAllSubchannels) and Recording A ends

22:45 Time to record Recording B
22:45 TvService finds a free card and tunes to BBC1 - Recording B begins

23:15 End Recording B
23:15 TvService fully releases the tuner (FreeAllSubchannels) and Recording B ends

Additional use case
Update: A very similar issue seems to break manual recording. With manual recordings the TvServer attempts to re-use a subchannel instead of create a new one but the result is the same: SubmitTuneRequest: returns 0x1). I've attached some additional logs for this use case.

If you need any more information please let me know

Cheers
Mark

afraid I've not seen this and I have almost identical setup to you.

for channels such as BBC1 that exist on both dvb-t and dvb-s I went into the channel mappings etc and made sure that it can be viewed by all 4 tuners - dvb-t and dvb-s.

I have been able to record 2 consecutive programs that way. Even 2 consecutive on BBCHD which is only on dvb-s. I often record the back-to-back "in the night gardens" for my kids @ 6pm and 6.30.

I have seen something else which is doing my head in - corrupted recordings where on playback it seems to jump/stutter to frames from different recorded files - but I don't think thats the same problem at all

if you want to see any of my cfg / logs let me know which files (I am not an mp debugging expert. I can debug big ip networks, but not s/w!)

Hi Ian

I'd definately be interested to see the tv.log from around the time that "In the Night Gardens" records. Can I ask, do you have pre and post-recording padding configured?

I've not had much chance to do much further investigation of this over the last week or so... work has been manic... I've also been debugging IP networks but only in so far as trying to track down machines infected with the kido worm.

Cheers
Mark

yes defo have pre (5) and post (10) . so I end up with overlapped recordings.
log attached. annoying they go in a hidden directoy on vista!

i just quickly watched them on ffwd - recording seem to overlap exactly as you'd expect.

Hi Ian
Well, what can I say? Your setup really is working like it says on the tin! This leads me to some more questions:
* Is there a configuration setting that's breaking subchannels? I notice that you don't pre-load the cards whereas I do.
* Is the problem limited to certain channels?
* Is the problem limited to channels with multiple tuning details?

Hopefully I'll get some time to sit down and figure this out over the weekend. Failing that I'll have a bash at recording "In the Night Garden" back to back. Can you remind me, how is that schedule created on your system - every time on this channel, every time every channel or in some other way?

Thanks for posting your log

Have a good weekend
Mark

I just go into the EPG and press "record" . it often offers me a number of instances of the same program in the bottom right hand corner, so I usually setup a few days worth from there. I haven't found anything that will do same time same channel for me yet - is there a plugin for that?

I use djblu's tswriter for freesat epg, not sure if that makes a diff.

OK so it doesn't seem to be related to preloading, or manually creating the recordings instead of using the scheduler.
I've tried with and without the DJblu tswriter and get the same result.

I suppose the next step would be reinstall the app but that's such a PIA when you receive 1000 channels - i've been trying to avoid it.

I've noticed one different between my log and your log. In my log file, when the second recording starts I see this:
Code:
Scheduler : record on recommended card:10 priority:5
But in your logs it says this:
Code:
Scheduler : record on free card:3 priority:5
I don't know what's the difference between a "free" card and a "recommended" card though

    Some questions.

    Is the BBC1 channel FTA or scrambled ?
    Are u able to do b2b recordings on the dvb-s2 device ?

    Tried newer BDA drivers, or even older ones ?
    What card are u using ?
    Is it possible for you to try another dvb-t card, another brand ?

    Can u multitune the dvb-t device using 2 timeshifting sessions on the same BBC1 channel ?
    I guess you need a multiseat setup to test this.
    Or maybe u can tune BB1 in setuptv, and then tune the same channel in a windowed MP session...havent tried it.
