Re: Playback / Performance issue with MacOS record engine 20210227

It was quite happily recording two shows and a live TV channel, plus playing back one of the recordings and the live channel. Ran for about 5 minutes with no glitches or buffering pauses. I stopped one of the playback sessions and a few second later the system crashed and rebooted. The crash report ...

Re: Playback / Performance issue with MacOS record engine 20210227

Re: Playback / Performance issue with MacOS record engine 20210227

I ran a test on Big Sur with a RAID1 setup on two USB drives - that worked without issue. I have a Mac with 10.13 but it does a screen-of-death when creating the filesystem on the RAID1 array. I will try reinstalling the OS. If that works I will try a 4-disk setup as close as I can to your setup. In...

Re: Playback / Performance issue with MacOS record engine 20210227

Not related to the problem seen on Windows (fixed internally pending release). The 20210227 release upgrades the Mac platform to use the sendfile kernel feature which improves playback performance. The sendfile feature really needs the filesystem to be 100% kernel based. Double checking - are the My...

Re: Unable To Play Back Recorded Content

Is the problem seen with both live TV and recordings or only live TV?

Re: macOS Big Sur - App Crashing after upgrade OS

My current best guess is that one of the audio devices is tripping something up.

If you can figure out which device it is we can order one and test it here.

Re: macOS Big Sur - App Crashing after upgrade OS

Does it still crash with the USB DAC device disconnected?
