nice :)

what kind of errors are you now getting ?

can u provide a tv.log snippet showing one of these errors ?

/gibman

can u try and give the attached patch a test.

/gibman

Much better with the patch. goth 6 errors in 400 tries though.

2 cards, 2 users default settings

Hi Gibman,

I have attached the whole tv.log even though its rather big.

This is 77 tunes with one failed.

errors i saw before was "no signal" and "no audio/video detected"

Something strange though. the log get big very fast and it keeps growing even after stopping the test. This log stop with me restarting the tv-service.

regards
Jacob

    your failed channel:
    2010-11-10 15:37:21.168759 [(5)]: card: WaitForTimeShiftFile - video was found, but audio was not found after 15,0072261 seconds

    the reason why the log gets flooded with those "card:2 type:DvbC is available" is because of the new card alloc. code.
    Have to look into it.
    you can disable it by commenting it out.
    in : cardallocationbase.cs

    could u try the new patch :) ?

    EDIT: I've disabled the excessive logging now in svn.

    Hi,

    I would like to participate to this test, because i didn't use TV in MePo (because it's too slowwwww lol) but i would like :)
    So the idea of this testing it's really great, i have a hauppauge WinTV HVR 4000, i use for test only DVB-T.
    For information with DVBviewer all is working good (speed etc.)

    The result is not very cool with me lol.
    I hope that help to try to catch the issue :)
    Seb.

    Edit : I just made another testing -> Remove all scrambled Channel -> Set Number of concurrent.. to 1 -> no Failed on 23 Channels.
    I have an Avg mSec : 1600.

    the latest changes for stress testing is in svn and will be part of the next release.

    about the terractec 2400dt dual dvb-t card-

    We are unable to fix it. Obviously being a driver problem, the device manufacturer has to fix it.
    I did mail terractec but, as expected, I did not receive a reply.
    I suspect terratec as well as many other brands to not write their own drivers, but are instead written by the chipset suppliers.

    what I did was simple:
    I removed the card from my server. Now it is collecting dust.
    crude, I know, but it works :)

    avoid this card if you can.

    AW: Re: stress test your tvserver.

    Hello Gibman,

    thanks for the nice tool.
    Maybe I don't get it yet.
    I have problems with my cards so I want to find out which one causes the problem.
    What I know already is that I have problems with my Terratec Cinergy S2.
    But also other recordings fail.

    So I installed the tool (doesn't say, but I replaced the SetupTV.exe).
    And let it run with 4 concurrent.
    But I don't understand what I see.

    I would have expected that all 4 cards are tested if the channel is mapped.
    But in that case I would need to see all working cards (good) and all cards where time shifting failed (bad).

    Next problem what is the card number referring to?
    The number in the Channel Testing view does not match as you see in the hardcopy.
    The card number is also different to the TV Server number.
    But how I know which card causes the problem?

    Please enlighten me. Thanks
    CHS

    Possibly. You may want to check your provider's frequency table rather than relying on IMDB.
