DM800HD PVR and IPTV problem (OE 2.0)

  • Hi all,
    I am realy sorry if this has been discussed before, I have searched the forum for this issue, with no success.


    I have tested a number of OE 2.0 images, and they all seem to give me problems when watching internet streams (iptv) via the bouqets.
    This is a problem for me since I do not have an antenna, so I use DM800hd only for watching IPTV.


    The problem is that when watching a stream that has a quality bitrate above 1mb. The box will hang\freeze after 50-60 minutes of watching a single channel (without zapping).
    The spinner is shown in the upper left corner, the picture freezes, the remote does not work, nor is there any network connection. At the end I have to pull the power cable for it to reboot.


    I then tested the same thing, but a Low quality channel with a bitrate under 600 kb. The box did not hang\freeze, I could watch for serveral hours without problems.


    I do not have this issue with an image running OE 1.6, works great.
    So is this a hardware or software (image, oe, driver?) related issue? Could it be a bug or that DM 800 HD is simply too weak for OE 2.0 ?


    Thanks in advance!

  • Hi there :)
    No there is no green-screen, nor a crashlog, it just sits there with the spinner animation. If I leave it like that for say 10 min, it automaticly reboots.


    If you could tell me how to create a enigma bootlog I would be glad to do it. never done that. :)

    So, the OOM Killer has slammed again(out of memory)...which image version(date) do you use?


    Then, output of dmesg would be interesting too (Telnet: "dmesg > /iptv_dmesg.txt" right after restart of enigma2!)

  • The image that I used recently was Media-Sat 4.0 that is based on the OpenPli OE 2.0 image.
    This is the info I got from them:
    driver= 11.07.2012 r.7.0
    ssl 84 r.11
    enigma 3.999git.20120912
    kernel 2.6.18.7.4
    All updates from 12.09.2012



    Do you need dmesg after restart when it hangs or before it hangs?
    I will try and get the bootlog also, looks a bit tricky :)


    Thanks again

  • Tonight I flashed my box with genuine DMM image, dated 25.09.2012
    http://www.dreamboxupdate.com/…-image-dm800-20120925.nfo


    I inserted my iptv streams in the bouquet and restarted dreambox.


    Then I watched one single channel (bitrate quality around 1 mb), without zapping. After excatly 50 min, the box froze and the spinner appeared. It stayed this way for 20 min !
    Then it restarted enigma2 automaticly.


    I have attached my dmesg that I took right after restart :)

  • Good to hear :)


    I hope you find the problem that is causing this. I know that dm800 is weak compared to other boxes, but it was not cheap :)
    Keep me updated, and if you need more tests\logs, just ask.


    Thanks!

  • Hi there,


    Is there a changelog we can follow on the experimental images? Or will you inform me here if there are any changes regarding this problem?


    Thanks
