backend - won't find right input on HDPVR

Reported by: support@… Owned by: jpoet
Priority: minor Milestone: unknown
Component: MythTV - Recording Version: 0.25
Severity: high Keywords: HDPVR component input
Cc: Ticket locked: no

Description

I created a fresh Centos 6.2 x64 install with Myth 0.25 from atrpms.

I still have my old 0.24 backend running, and transferred all settings to my new 0,25 backend. Although the .25 backend detects and lets me configure my HDPVR, all attempts to use the HDPVR result in Resource Temporarily Unavailable (11) errors. I can succesfully capture and view video from the HDPVR on the 0.25 backend using "cat /dev/HDPVR > /tmp/t1.avi" and then viewing the avi file on my Windows machine, so it's not a HDPVR error...something in myth.

When the front-end is trying to show the video a SD480 logo appears (not sure if that's relevent) but I would not expect this for component input.

It appears that Myth backend is not using the right input on the HDPVR (component), and there is no way to force it to component.


backend log while trying to view video from HDPVR:

In case it's useful, here is info from capturecard table:

Sounds like the wrong capture "type" has been selected. Please try to run mythtv-setup again, and re-do the capture card setup for the HD-PVR.

I deleted the card, and added it back as "H.264 Encoder Card (HDPVR)" - same result. This is also the type that was selected before.

Or is this the wrong card type to pick?

comment:5 Changed 8 years ago by jpoet

HDPVR is the correct type. Are you saying it does not let you choose the component input?

Also, can you try 0.25-fixes? The HD-PVR signalmonitor has been updated since 0.25 was first released.

comment:6 Changed 8 years ago by Michelle Dupuis <support@…>

The card setup does not allow me to pick a default input type (component) like under 0.24 - that field is gone.

The input setup does offer me the 3 input types, and I have setup (only) the component input.

ATrpms is still at 0.25 so I will have to remove that and switch to compiling from source. I'll update once that's done.

Ok - I upgraded to 0.25.1 and tried again. The problem remains but the symptoms are a bit different (and the log is a bit different too.). Now when I try to watch live tv I get: "Error opening jump program file buffer", and the backend log is below

Good news - it's working now! The above problems related to a USB 3 driver issue. Plugging into USB 2 let everything work ok. (Not sure what cat from /dev/HDPVR worked under usb 3 but something in myth makes the xhci driver crap out)...

Thanks for reporting the real problem.

comment:10 Changed 8 years ago by Michelle Dupuis <support@…>

Hopefully I was clear...there is a real problem in .25 but in .25.1 it works fine. The secondary problem (USB3) only appeared once the HDPVR started working in .25.1
