#7699 closed defect (wontfix)

"locked" frontend and overloaded backend due to live TV Browse mode

0.22-fixes. Two DVB-S cards, two sources, almost the same channels on them. Identical channels set with the same channum and callsign so MythTV is free to pick up either of those tuners for a given channum or a callsign.

In setup the following switches are enabled:

  • Avoid conflicts between live TV and scheduled shows
  • Allow live TV to move scheduled shows
  • Always use Browse mode in live TV
  • Browse all channels

Multirecording enabled (with 5 simultaneous recordings).

A scheduled recording in progress on card#1, live TV on card#2. Pressing ArrowUp/Down? in live TV should show the Browse OSD and allow browsing through the channels. Instead the frontend stops responding to any key and backend maxes out the CPU (together with mysqld).

frontend -v playback,channel repeats forever: 00:07:58.936 IsTunable?(9003) 00:07:59.498 IsTunable?(9003) -> false

00:07:59.507 IsTunable?(9003) 00:07:59.836 IsTunable?(9003) -> false

00:07:59.845 IsTunable?(9003) 00:08:00.120 IsTunable?(9003) -> false

9003 is the first channel (channum "1"). I was recording channel "3" and watching live channel "5" so after pressing ArrowUp? it should have checked IsTunable? for channel "6" but there is another bug that causes the Browse mode to think the current channum is 0. There is a snippet of a log with Browse mode disabled:

ChannelBase?(10): Looking for startchannel 'NextChannel? 0' on input 'DVBInput #1'

It shows that Myth is confused and tries to find next channel to channel "0" while I was watching channel "5" or something. I don't have channum "0" defined at all.

Much more details can be found in this thread:

Maybe it would be smarter to create a separate ticket just for the problem with zero current channel and when that would be fixed this "locked frontend" problem might be fixed as well, dunno.

Resolution: wontfix

TTBOMK, the reason these options are off by default is because of the astronomical overhead of using them, aggravated by multirec.
