#3084 closed defect (duplicate)

partial lock only one some channels, most ok

Cc: Ticket locked: no


Since upgrading to svn latest and greatest I have noticed that I have lost the ability to view and record some DVB channels. As far as I can tell only 2 are affected, Film Four and ftn (UK). The problem is that I only get a partial lock on those channels. I can change to other channels ok or escape out, but the partial lock status never changes on those channels.

I have re-verified this with the latest as of today:

Library API version: 0.20.20070124-1 Source code version: 12786M

(only modification is #3046 patch applied).

I have also verified that it is not occuring using the following version (release-0-20-fixes):

Library API version: 0.20.20060828-3 Source code version: 12786

While I tested the above, I also noted that I was able to get a lock with trunk after my test on 0.02 fixes, but after changing channels and back again, I now get the partial lock only again.

The log entries I get is:

I too was having a similar problem until about 15 minutes ago when I discovered changeset #12619. Since around the time this changeset was committed (approx. 3 weeks) I have been experiencing many partial locks which just stay that way indefinitely.

About half of my DVB channels (mostly SD, I don't remember seeing it happen on HD channels) do not tune about 50% of the time.

The signal monitor in the OSD reports 'LMs', so I figured it's something to do with SDT parsing?

Anyway, I found changeset 12619 this evening and have manually enabled quicktune on my DVB cardinput and now I can tune all channels 100% successfully again and my channel change time is quite a bit quicker than when it was working previously.

Did #12619 perhaps break something else that wasn't caught in the #12626 fix?

Johan, tried your recommendation (turning on quick tune) and it works (but is it reliable?)! As you say, there must be something broken about that changeset.
