Hi there, i have two satellite devices in an lnb-sharing setup. As said in the topic since update to vdr 1.7.27 recordings do not put data on the disk anymore and AV liveview with the vdr-sxfe frontend freezes if bonding sets the Twinhan Card to master. The setup is Technisat Skystar HD and KWorld DVBS Satellite Card (clone of Twinhan VP1020), so it is DVBS2 and DVBS mixed. VDR is 1.7.27. I have been using vdr 1.7.21 before with lnb-sharing applied. In the old setup there was a similar problem in that switching to vertical didn't work reliably or at all respectively. I managed to overcome this behaviour by patching the Twinhan driver to eliminate _any_ voltage output on the card. Once i found a working patch vdr has been running for months without any problems anymore. Note that the 'new' issue occurs with the vanilla Twinhan driver and my patched version as well. Is it maybe possible to force the use of one card as Master bonding device or does anyone have other ideas to overcome the problems?
If the master of a set of bonded devices doesn't get a signal, VDR should automatically switch the master to the next of the bonded devices. See cDvbTuner::Action(), case tsTuned: if (bondedTuner && bondedMaster) bondedMasterFailed = true; // give an other tuner a chance in case the sat cable was disconnected Of course, making sure the devices work properly in the first place might be a good idea ;-) Klaus _______________________________________________ vdr mailing list vdr@xxxxxxxxxxx http://www.linuxtv.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/vdr
