    I also had a problem about an hour ago.

    I was just watching tv when everything froze. Restarted mediaportal, but that didn't help.
    Tried various channels (not sure if they were on same card or not), nothing worked.

    Logged into tvservice, started config, and saw service was doing nothing. Tried preview of a channel and that worked ok.
    After that, another try in mediaportal (same channel as I previewed) but nothing... after a while "unable to play stream"

    Then, restarted tvservice (through the still running tvserver config), and after that, all worked again.

    Logs attached, last (failed attempt) at 21:50:21 tvservice time, and 21:49:38 client time.
    Notice the difference in time (40-50 seconds), could that be the problem?

    This looks like something totally different, related to the streaming server.

    Hello again mcraenz

    I haven't really kept track of what version of MP I've been using and when to be honest but I think I've only been running stable releases. Upgrading within a week of releases I guess.

    I'm not sure there is an older driver version for the TBS6985, it's a pretty new card. very similar to the 6984 though and exhibiting the same problem.
    Okay, so based on that at this stage we can't tie the problem to a specific MP or driver release. What I'm driving at is that if the problem wasn't occurring when you first got the 6984, then started at some point with the 6984 (and has continued with the 6985)... something changed to trigger this, and we need to isolate what that something is. Unfortunately your answers don't shed any light...

    Tonight I played with test channels again. All just FTA DVB-S. (MD all disabled still). After a while test channels started returning 'Tune Canceled'. Stopped the test and tried manual control same message popup - 'Tune Canceled'.
    @gibman
    Think I need your advice here.
    It looks like reservations are not being cleaned up properly in certain cases...

    All the cards are red in manual control. What does the red mean anyway? I know, I should RTFM!
    It isn't in the manual and you're not the only person to ask:

    Okey it did it again. After watching TV for a while tonight I went to SetupTV and tried to time-shift. All cards busy when choosing a specific card. All DVB-S cards (currently highest priority) skipped and tuned on DVB-T. Logs attached. Sorry they are a bit messy realised I still had a schedule for a sky channel which kept trying to start recording. Anyway it looks like the same problem and once again cannot kill TVService.exe

    Interesting to note the DVB-T card doesn't get blocked up. Maye because all EPG grabbing by this card is disabled?

    Logs attached.

    Okay, so I think you just ruled out that plugin.

    The graph is not fully stopped, but we can see that TsWriter stops:

    16-10-2013 22:12:00.997 CMpTs::ctor()
    So again, some upstream filter is not able to stop successfully. Here is where I think I would start to suspect TBS drivers.

    Eventually we see:

    At the end you can see the fact that the graph failed to stop for tuner 4018 is blocking the other 3 tuners from being used.

    I'm sorry but I'm not really able to explain what is going with any more certainty. It looks like TV Server is behaving as intended, but unusual failure conditions related to your TBS tuners are causing TV Server to also be unreliable.

    At this point I would recommend to fix any outdated tuning details, including U and PRIME and re-introduce the plugin.

    Bad drivers can cause all kinds of situations where any graph related operation (stop/start/pause) blocks indefinitely.

    What this means is that the card reservation ticket is never released.
    So when the next channel is tuned, which requires this specific card, then you will see this card reservation error in the log.
    It should atleast give you the card reservation ticket ID that is blocking, so you can use this ID to back-trace your logs.

    Did you try stress testing the card using the stress test tool in setupTV ?
    You could try stress test tool on different driver revisions, keeping track of the stress test stats on each run.

    Bad drivers...
    This advice is definitely right for the MediaPortalLogs_16_10_13__22_14.zip logs.

    However, it seems something different is happening in the earlier logs (MediaPortalLogs_15_10_13__23_38.zip) when the stress test was done. There I am seeing that cancelled tune requests from the stress test seem to be creating failed reservations.

    Thanks for all the help and advice guys. I've deleted the defunct channels and done a re-scan. I'll report back.

    So - we are going to have to decide soon to include (or not) the current version of the fixes into MP 1.6.0 pre-release - my feeling is that it's OK (no regressions) and a considerable improvement over the old code i.e. I think we should include it.

    Comments/thoughts please ?
