TS-251 and dual TVButler

Postby Josep » Sun Nov 22, 2015 12:03 am

Hi,

I have a TS-251 with 4.2 firmware, and DVBLink server version 5.5.
All is working fine except when the two tuners must work simultaneously. Then one of them is recording nothing in the movie file.
If I go to the monitoring tab I can see that the bitrate and packets are 0.
The problem is not in the tuner but it is in the moment that run together.
Please help.

Thanks

Josep

So, as i understand you have two TVButlers, don't you?
If yes please, make and attach a screenshot of your TVSources tab.
Also,Please, set log level to info, restart dvblink server and attach zipped log file here.

Hi,

after fix a fault in our TV antenna installation. Now both tuners work fine.
Maybe the antenna signal is better now and can feed two tuners.
I will put this issue on hold and report later if the problem reappears.

thanks

Hi,

it failed again.
please see the attached logs.
Today about 10pm it must record two channels. But the bitrate and packets for the second channel "antena3 HD" are both 0.
I hope the logs can give us some light.

Thanks

Josep

What dvblink client do you use to set recordings? Do on these recordings appear "conflict icon"?
And how did you created your TV Sources? I mean you configured first TV Source (make scan of the channels), then add second TV Source as slave and after that you have gone to Channels tab in order to select needed channels, did not you?

I set the recordings via DVBLink server web interface.
The TV sources was created exactly how you tell.
The second recording is fired correctly and seems that is working fine. The problem is that the stream is empty. The recording ends at the configured time.
The failed recording file has a zero bytes size.

How two streams of LiveTV from different transponders works for you?
Is the some issue with LiveTV at all?

yes, the same issue happens with live TV.
the second channel gives 0 packets and 0 bitrate and after a few seconds ends.

If TVButlers separately work great I can assume that mostly it's the signal issue. Maybe weak signal or bad splitter.

I exchanged the tuners and always fails the second one.
When the second tuner fails I still can watch the TV ok (is connected to the same splitter) so I think that the TV signal is ok.
Seems some problem with concurrency at internal level of DVBserver
Are there any way to find what is wrong ?

Please, swap the tuners locations. If the issue will reproduced with the same USB port, i can suppose that the issue in the low power of USB port.

Some more info for this thread.
If you use the splitter then the signal is divided between the tuners. So to feed two tuners in full measure, better to use amplifier for antenna.

after some test I found that connecting one tuner to one USB 2 port and another to one USB 3 port is working fine.
I thought that is related to the drivers of tuners. Some resource can't work with more than one tuner at a time, or so.
I'll continue testing it.
