#8744 closed patch (fixed)

Mutex protect ChannelScanSM - fix crash/data corruption

Reported by: Rune Petersen <rune@…> Owned by: danielk
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.25
Component: MythTV - Channel Scanner Version: Master Head
Severity: medium Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no


I found this issue while verifying the #8737 fix.

The members in ChannelScanSM are accessed by 3 threads:

1) UI thread 2) ChannelScanSM's own thread 3) DVB thread (via listeners)

The corruption happens because both the ChannelScanSM thread and the DVB thread modifies the following members ts_scanned, extend_transports, currentEncryptionStatus, and currentEncryptionStatusChecked.

will attach a patch that will fix the crash/data corruption, but a proper fix would be to cleanup the code and some fine-grained locking added.

and this issue also exists for 0.23-fixes.
