[SOLVED partly] Broken recordings dm920

  • sometime no sound just picture(sorry deleted it)

    but sometime picture freezes after few seconds but sound continues

    example: 2.4 Gb http://www.superfm.lv/m/Dreambox/20190713_1300_-_HTB_HD.ts

    internal SSD

    Enigma2 V4.3.1 (revision: 4.3.2r6, date: 2019-07-10)

    i have had broken recordings before, but two at single day is too much

  • my first impression: this is scrambled content, and the descrambler has not done the work well. The bits for scrambled content are not set .

    But I'm missing valid PES header and video data.

  • annoying lottery still there :(

  • I think i found the problem.

    Sometimes the servicereference for the HBO service is


    and sometimes it is


    The difference is the DVB service type (third parameter) ... 1 (digital television service) vs 19 (H.264/AVC HD digital television service)

    This messes up enigma2. And stupidly ensures that a new connection to the "external tool" is generated. Do you know how that happens? Several bouquets where the service is included? Or maybe this will also generate the autotimer or an EPG query. Let's see if and how I can fix that.

  • bouquet width :19:

    lamedb widh :25:

    timer.xml widh random, some of events were added from Partnerbox

    all eight sunday's recordings done in perfect condition :)

    box were in idle all day long,

    when recorded files interrupted during recording, i'm guessing,

    there is some problem with tuner independence of TripleTuner Si2169D,

    do i have to start new tread for it or continue there?

    log files not saved yet

  • solved partly:

    1. video without audio - SOLVED

    2. audio without video - SOLVED

    3. interrupted recordings were caused Twin tuners independence problem,

    it's still there couple of years and looks like solution isn't planned at all :(

    i started separate tread:

    Triple Tuner Si2169D tuners independence problem
