2019/11/05 21:48:09 [DVR] Commercial detection finished with 10 markers.

Thanks in advance for assistance,

These messages are bad news and indicate either a network issue or that the disk you're using to record is failing.

You said the speedtest shows 100MB/s but I would expect much more for a gigabit wired network.

I think, if he's using the FireTV 4k with the amazon adapter, the max ethernet speed he'll get is 100MB/s. I actually removed the adapter on mine and was able to get faster speeds using my wifi.

thanks for the quick response..the buffer msg is from 1 of the tuners in the HDHR.

The drive is a brand new Seagate 2 TB USB 3.0 device. I have not detected any drive errors.I rechecked my network cabling. The cabling from the Cox modem, to the TP link router to the PC all is connected to the router itself. The only device out of that connectivity is the Fire TV and that e-net dongle connection. That connection is thru a gigabit Ethernet switch to the router..

I rewatched the program that we were watching last night when the buffering started. It played today without issue. Could the problem have something to do with my processor and a possible lack of CPU power?

We typically record and watch previously recorded programs at the same time.At times we may be recording more than 1 program at a time between the HDHR ans Playstation Vue. We also have Commercial Dedtection on, which I understand puts a significant amount of load on the cpu when it is doing it's work.

I have turned off the commercial detection in the server and will try to re create the problem. Any thoughts on the CPU horsepower?? Could we be over driving it with all the co incident record/playback activity?

Thanks for your feedback..

Bob

It's possible that it might be a CPU issue. You could check the Task Manager while recordings are happening to see how much the system is loaded.

Boogmeister1 is correct. The Amazon dongle for Firetv 4K is limited to 10/100 speeds (BUMMER). Because I have a 2nd Firetv upstairs in BR, my wifi is limited to N speeds instead of AC because of signal strength aka walls etc. May needd to upgrade to MESH Router in the future.

I will be testing and switching to Task Manager monitoring to see if CPU/GPU performance is the culprit.

Thanks

Bob

If you're having bandwidth issues with 100Mbps connections, I'm not sure how much of an improvement mesh wireless is going to be. Bandwidth and throughput of mesh networking is much reduced over straight wireless because of the need to maintain a connection to all of the nodes in a bidirectional manner.

I have no doubt they've improved over the last couple of years, they still aren't as good as marketing materials will lead you to believe. Mesh is best for expanding coverage to hard to reach places in an easy manner, not for achieving highspeed everywhere.

(Also, the routers used by mesh systems can introduce another layer of complexity that makes network troubleshooting much more difficult at times.)

racameron..thanks for the feedback on Mesh..I don't think I have a bandwidth problem in this instance. I've seen no frame transmit/receive errors or network errors of any kind in the log. I'm thinking this is more of an issue with the speed/capacity of the CPU/APU. Spec wise (2 cores) it appears to be enough, but, with the amount of co-incident recording and playback we do, it could be the issue.
We typically record at least 1 pgm from 1 of the 4 HDHR tuners and 1 pgm from Playstation Vue per hour in the evening from 7 to 10PM each night. Additionally, we could be watching a program previously recorded during that same period of time.
We have the Commercial Detection turned on and I understand that takes up a lot of CPU while it's doing it's thing at the end of a given recording and I have hardware transcoding selected so that could be a contributor too.
I run the playback from the PC to a HT receiver via HDMI to the TV. I now have a window open on the PC input of the receiver with Task Mgr running to see if the CPU is pegged during 1 of the buffering episodes if I can get the input switched fast enough to catch it.
We'll have to see what happens..

Bob

OK, so let's analyze possible bottlenecks here. The one that stands out to me immediately is the Seagate drive, USB 3.x or not and the fact that you're recording multiple streams while playing some. So you are accessing a minimum of 3 files simultaneously on that drive. While single continuous file transfers can hit 130MB/s sustained on modern drives, as soon as you drop a second transfer in there, it drops to half or less. A third makes it drop again. And that's for the most optimistic performance numbers for a spinning drive, in reality you're generally looking at least 10-20% lower max numbers on a populated drive, worse if it's been heavily used and the file system is fragmented. You're also not running the latest greatest hardware there, so my guess without further info is that those numbers I'm quoting are likely quite a bit above the peaks you're looking at in real life.

Finally, let's look at comm skip. That reads the file as fast as possible as it's a simple scan. That can actually cause write performance to drop significantly as the write requests get queued up behind a large block read request.

So that gives you the down and dirty on why you're suffering problems. Your post helped me figure out why I started having issues when we hooked up TV Everywhere just recently, so thanks for that.

As soon as I look into the configuration and figure out how I can reduce the hit, I'll post a followup, although I'm currently temporarily on a WD 4TB USB, I was actually looking to move that to a 2TB external SSD, which would solve those types of problems. (Random seeks are cheap on SSDs)

Read your evaluation of my issue. Lots of good feedback. Thanks so much.

Last night while watching a previous recording, playback locked up..screen went black! jumped over to receiver and changed to PC to look at Task Mgr performance..."I" drive, where recordings are stored and played back from was 100% busy.This is the USB 3.0 drive discussed earlier.

I ordered a 1TB SSD drive this morning. Should be here tomorrow afternoon and will replace the "I" drive ASAP. Will cc everything off "I"and move to SSD.

I'll update as soon as things are completed and tested.

Thanks for the feedback..

Bob.
