It can be that yours is the same. Your log file does not give enough information to judge.Maybe you can upload a new log file when issue happens again. I tend to remember that some TBS tuners (or their drivers) had issues with simultaneous watching of two or more channels. Also, do you have a power supply connected to your tuner? Can be related to power, diseqc or LNB itself.


Ok I have downloaded a log last night as soon as it happened... although I'm a way on business for a couple of days so won't be able to upload it... I have the power connected to the card although TSB state this is unescessary for 'standard' operation..... I have version 0.006 drivers which is the latest and don't have any freezing issues with NEXTPVR.

It's strange I've tested my current setup with Dvblogic streaming to two other clients as well as the same client that also has the backend installed at the same time! this would be 3 of the four tuners and this worked perfectly for a good 30 minutes ( I'd didn't test any longer).. another time, however it's only streaming off one tuner and all of a sudden it will freeze...

It would be good to get to the bottom of this, I'm very happy to test and provide logs further data...

froze again, new logs loaded, this time recording started and was watching same channel. after some time after pressing the stop button Kodi falls back to main menu. The channel that is being recorded or any other channel on the same transponder can not be watched in Kodi or via the web client. Other channels can be watched, the recorded channel is still being recorded on the Tuner 1 and tuner 2 is being used to view the other channesls

edit: The Bitrate is also solid 7147 and packets has stopped at 8583 and i cant watch the recording, i guess its not really recording...

The pixelation is caused by something else, because my old (SAB Unix Triple) tuner shows the same problem. So back to my HTPC and testing.

I now did a scan of all transponders on Astra 23.5E, on tuner 1, while tuner 2 was playing a channel. I had Time shift disabled in the Kodi DVBlink add-on. But when I clicked save after the scan was completed, Kodi froze. So Time shift does not seem to make a difference.

Hmmmm I may have discovered what the issue is, let me test over the next couple of days and if I'm right I'll try and build up enough courage and say what it is :oops: :? :oops: [its rather simple]

I have now tested for a while, after starting new log files in both DVBlink and Kodi. Of course, when you wait for a freeze, it does not happen. In the mean time, the log files, with debugging enabled, grew to unpractical sizes.

So I turned off debugging, and waited again. Lo and behold: I got a freeze! Kodi complains that it does not get anything ftom the backend:

The DVBlink server log had little information:

However, this error message may give some info to someone who knows this software.

Another observation is that there is no EPG on any channel. But that may have nothing to do with the freezes.

I will continue to test, with debugging enabled.

Around 15:36 another freeze occurred, now with DVBlink log setting to Info.

Kodi reports a reconnect failure at the same moment as DVBlink reports an error.

I suppose,in your case Kodi freezes if there no stream from the DVBLink server. Looks like some of the encrypted channels could not be decrypted.

Yeah, it could be. I am running around in circles for more than a year now. If this is the problem, HOW can I solve it?

Just for tests, you may make an upgrade of the server and the TVSource with the trial license. And test the decryption in the DVBLink Viewer.
Do not forget to make a backup before the upgrade.
