#2182 closed defect (worksforme)

Return to previous channel when error

Reported by: elkin@… Owned by: Isaac Richards
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.20
Component: mythtv Version: 0.19
Severity: low Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no


Hi, when I happen to zapp into a channel (DVB) that has too bad of a signal (no lock) MythFrontend bails out (some errors about buffer). This, I guess happens to everyone. The user (my wife!!) would have to open mythtv-setup to change the "default" channel to a previously working one.

How about just remembering the previous channel and tuning this one the next time?

On a side note: Thanks for this great project!

No please, no more info.

The no lock condition should be taken care of in SVN head when using the DVB drivers. We're close to a 0.20 release and are not fixing any remaining 0.19 problems.

When I watch LiveTV and tune to a bad signal channel and mythtv can not gain lock it spits me back to the main menu. When I try to get back to LiveTV, as the last channel is still set as default (start), I get into an infinite loop (the channel does not get better signal from trying again). The only solution is to call mythtv-setup and change the starting channel to some that works. This is not unser friendly, as I wrote in my original message. The "correct" way would be to open LiveTV in the last working channel or to let the user choose a channel before mythtv starts tuning.

But as changed by danielk: I can wait for 0.20 if it is going to be fixed... ;-)
