MP2 Version
2.3.2
Description:
Although all scheduled recordings use the same recording settings (5 minutes before and after a show), two of the seven TV shows I record each week do not follow the rule.

I removed them from the records schedule and add them back as new recordings (every week at the same time) but nothing changed. I double-checked their setting using both TV settings GUI and MP2TVE_3 database but everything seem OK. I provide a copy of schedule and recording tables from MP2TVE_3 database in csv format. Faulty recordings are ...
  • schedule table: rowid 622 and 623
  • recording table: rowid 1323 and 1328.

In provided csv file, you can see that the schedule table seems OK (startTime, endTime, preRecordInterval, postRecordInterval) but the recording table shows that it actually started five minutes after the TV show began (i.e. 20:05 instead of 19:55 for rowid 1323, 19:35 instead of 19:25 for rowid 1328).

My PC is kept up-to-date on a weekly basis.
I have two TV cards.

Steps to Reproduce:
I do not understand why it happens so I can't reproduce the problem on demand :-(

    thanks for reporting the problem. Did you just add an *.txt to the TV DB ending?

    @morpheus_xx
    can you see something from the log files, I can only see several issues as below
    [ERROR] - Warn.: SOAPHandler: Error invoking UPnP action 'Load'
    [DEBUG] - Exception: System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
    But I do not think they are related to the problem.
    @joecrow
    In case you have an installation ready, something you could try to reproduce? My IPTV is not ready, because I'm changing the IPTV infrastructure.

    @morpheus_xx, an MP2TVE_3.s3db.txt was uploaded as well as the log files. I'm trying to reproduce the problem (potentially from concurrent recordings?)

    Sorry guys, forget my request. In an attempt to reproduce the problem, I just found that (bad timing) one of my TV tuners just died at about the same time I moved to MediaPortal 2.3.2. I can’t record two TV shows at the same time, explaining the behaviour of my recording (when looking at my schedule). Thank for having tried to debug a problem that did not exist :).

    Ok, the importer also remembers the queue of items that are still needed to be processed in settings file.

    Thank you for performing this test, and confirming @joecrow 's suspicion as to the cause of the problem. In principle the same problem exists with other EPG sources, such as the broadcast EPG that I use with DVB-T/T2. When a programme first appears in the EPG (7 days ahead of its broadcast time), some programmes have a generic...

    I think that this is a different exception to the others that have been reported. This is what happened: I woke the system from hibernation. From the Windows 7 desktop, I pressed the START button on the remote control to start MP 1.25f. On the MP splash screen, the "Starting TV Server" text appeared unexpectedly. After a long wait...

    There still is this error message: The reason is that you activated the thumbnailer in the settings. This is not necessary as MP2 has its own thumbnailer generator. Please deactivate it and this error message will be gone. So what you say is that some recordings work correctly, but others don't and in those cases the PC didn't wake...

    After uninstalling MySQL make sure you delete the MySQL folders in Program Files/Program Files (x86) and Program Data (if you do not see the Program Data folder you need to change the view to see hidden folders). A full reinstall of MP should then work
