Description

Using svn 11015. Tried starting two recordings at the same time. It seemed to casuse lots of failures. From the system /var/log/messages file:

ivtv0 warning: Error starting capture ...: 1 Time(s) ivtv0 warning: init error 21. Code -16 ...: 1 Time(s)

Plus a bunch more repeating errors: Sep 1 00:00:17 douglas kernel: ivtv0 warning: 1000 ms time out waiting for firmware Sep 1 00:00:17 douglas kernel: ivtv0 warning: Failed api call 0x00000082 with result 0xfffffff0 Sep 1 00:00:17 douglas kernel: ivtv0 warning: ENC: Failed stopping capture -16 Sep 1 00:00:25 douglas kernel: ivtv0 warning: 1000 ms time out waiting for firmware Sep 1 00:00:25 douglas kernel: ivtv0 warning: Failed api call 0x000000c6 with result 0xfffffff0 Sep 1 00:00:28 douglas kernel: ivtv0 warning: No Free Mailbox for cmd 0x000000db after 100 tries!

Then from the mythbackend log:

Failed to bind port 6543. Exiting.

I ended up needing to reboot the system. Some other bit of confusion with the change to treat the card as one card and two tuners is that the backend status page only refers to tuner 2.

I should have mentioned that I'm using ivtv driver version 0.7.0 and all is running on Fedora core 5 dual Opteron system.
