Hi,
doing some pretty heavy testing of VDR 1.7.21 as part of gen2vdr V3 and have now twice had the case
that a recording did not end. Supposed to end at 23:10 yesterday, still going strong at 06:00 this
morning. Can't find anything in the history file of VDR that this is a know problem and has been fixed in
later versions.
Here is some of the log:

Any ideas?

Did this happen only once, or is it reproducible?

Is this "plain vanilla" VDR or are there any patches involved.
I never had this problem with plain vanilla VDR.

Moin,

second time now. Its the standard gen2vdr distribution so various patches and plugins I guess.

I am not trying to use VPS, can I rule that out due to the messages shown?

Since there is no VPS keyword in the timer line at

Apr 30 21:59:00  [2496] timer 1 (1 2159-2310 'Silent Witness') start

it's safe to assume that VPS is not being used.

>Apr 30 23:01:59  [2734] read incomplete section - len = 428, r = 214

Is the above message important?

No.

I'll try to strip it down then and see if it reoccurs.

Try to get rid of as many patches as possible (preferably all of them ;-).
And use only the plugin necessary for output, nothing else.

Hi Klaus,

without plugins up till now no problems till yesterday evening. The VDR is still up, but not recording anything,
no disk activity at all.

Log is full with the following messages:

Which I guess means that VDR never got around to checking that the timer had finished. The program was 1hour long with
a 20 minute buffer added to the end. Log around the time it should have ended shows nothing.

Emergency Exit = 1 is set in the config.

Any ideas?

These log messages indicate that the output device is in trouble and
doesn't accept data any more. Since this is happening in transfer mode
(i.e. "live"), there is no reason for an "emergency exit". Either switch
to a different channel (which will restart the transfer mode and probably
reinitialize the output device) or manually restart VDR.

Klaus
