#2158 closed defect (wontfix)

Backend exits if it can't find a tuner card - patch attached

Cc: Ticket locked: no


I had a Master Backend with two DVB cards. I moved the cards into a Slave Backend but haven't changed the configuration yet (Mythtv thinks I've got 2 cards in each backend, but it can't find the cards in the Master Backend)

On my Frontend I went into "Information Center->System Status->Tuner Status", and the Master Backend exited with the following message in the log:

MainServer: HandleRemoteEncoder(cmd GET_STATE) Unknown encoder: 1, exiting

The attached patch fixes this.

You will have many other problems if you have MythTV configured for cards that don't exist, fixing this one case isn't a very good solution. A better solution would completely eliminate the backend exit() call there, but this would probably require making sure every myth protocol query (or at least every encoder query) had a consistent error return value.
