Windows DVR BUG: Glitches during recording


#81

Easy way to check Flow Control settings via PowerShell:

PS C:\Users\tmm1> Get-NetAdapterAdvancedProperty -RegistryKeyword *FlowControl

Name                      DisplayName                    DisplayValue                   RegistryKeyword RegistryValue
----                      -----------                    ------------                   --------------- -------------
Ethernet                  Flow Control                   Disabled                       *FlowControl    {0}

#82

So what’s the verdict here… fixed?

Did disabling Flow Control help anyone with a CONNECT or EXTEND?


#83

I have no issues. Working perfectly now with the Prime.


#84

No issues with my prime now. Thanks for the hard work!


#85

Agreed, problems have been removed but the only glitches I see are at the very end of a recording, really no issue but just wanted to share as an FYI.


#86

Catching up on shows from this past week using most recent beta versions of app and server and glitching terribly. Anyone else?


#87

I have been having frame drops using channels through the ATV on live and recorded shows, but I may have fixed it. I will know in a day or two if its truly fixed. But strange as it may be I made some changes to the DNS settings on the ATV and I have seen less problems.


#88

Any errors or warnings in the logs from when those recordings were happening?


#89

No. And it’s not just recordings. It is live tv as well. But for the last several days I have not seen the problem. The changes in the DNS either fixed it or was a coincidence. I don’t know why DNS settings would have anything to do with it, but so far picture has been better. I have yet to try a recording I have kept to check and make sure its good. Now on the same recording if I streamed from Plex there were no frame drops but through channels there was. Again it is a lot better now than it was. I’ll post here again if it is an issue.


#90

I also have these glitches and sound dropouts on both live tv and recordings they seem to be recorded into the program I have had these problems before when it was only the channels app before the dvr was available.
I did not have these glitches on other apps like MrMc or DVB Link.
This system would be perfect if these glitches could be sorted out.

i posted log covering last night, I havent checked anything last night as I gave up once Big Bang started to glitch out to the point of being totally unwatchable, I hate to say it, but almost worse than it was a few weeks ago.

Looks like there were all sorts of errors while trying to record Big Bang Theory. The DVR was not able to keep a stable connection to your tuner, and kept having to disconnect/reconnect. That’s why large chunks of the recording are missing, and it glitches as it jumps ahead.

So for instance the recording started at 8:00:30, and then at 8:06:02 there was a disconnect because no video was received for 3 seconds:

2017/05/11 20:00:30 [DVR] Recording for job 1494547140-3 from 13102AF6 ch3.1 into "TV\The Big Bang Theory\2017-05-11-2000 The Big Bang Theory 2017-05-11 S10E24 The Long Distance Dissonance.mpg" for 31m29.5241603s
2017/05/11 20:06:02 [DVR] Cancelling stream 13102AF6 ch3.1 after 3s read timeout

This could either be a network issue or an antenna signal issue. What’s strange is that later it recorded The Amazing Race from the same channel and there were no issues that time. Also looks like the Gray’s Anatomy recording that was happening at the same time as Big Bang was just fine.

I haven’t watched Grey’s or amazing race so will try from here first to see if they errored out in any way. I have cable for my source, not OTA and for whatever it is worth, no changes to network at all.


#95

Also can’t really make the signal coming from cable a likely suspect as big Bang recorded fine on my TiVo. The TiVo and hdprime or both connected off of same splitter where coax is split coming into house.


#96

Ah, I assumed the x.x channel numbers meant OTA. Are you using a PRIME or CONNECT? It does seem unlikely that it was a signal issue then. Hard to blame the network too when the other recordings weren’t affected…

Definitely curious to hear if the Grey’s or Amazing Race were fine or not.


#97

Prime, no cable card installed, just basic “antenna” type service from cable company.


#98

Hate to resurrect this thread, but I’m having these glitches. SWMBO is getting annoyed. I’ve disabled flow control and still getting them.

Not getting them on every recording, and never on live TV. Not seeing anything on the logs, but frequently we don’t notice the glitch until a couple of days later.

Using a HDHomeRun Connect, wired into a switch then to my router. PC is on the same switch. Running Win7 with an external hard drive for the recordings.The ATV4 is wired as well.

I love this product, but the glitches are annoying.

Can you try updating your HDHR firmware to the latest available on the SiliconDust forums?

Also make sure the cables you’re using are cat6
