I am having a weird problem with a couple channels, most easily observable with TNT-HD. Every hour on the hour, and I mean precisely on the hour, the stream will drop out. The stream isn't corrupted, it's just missing TS packets:
Code: Select all
tsfixcc -n d:\mummyreturns_tnt.mpg packet index: 14,350,826, PID: 0x177B, missing 1 packets packet index: 14,350,829, PID: 0x177B, missing 3 packets packet index: 14,350,830, PID: 0x177B, missing 9 packets packet index: 14,350,831, PID: 0x177B, missing 5 packets packet index: 14,350,832, PID: 0x177B, missing 8 packets packet index: 14,350,833, PID: 0x177B, missing 1 packets packet index: 14,350,834, PID: 0x177C, missing 7 packets packet index: 14,350,849, PID: 0x177D, missing 2 packets packet index: 14,350,853, PID: 0x177F, missing 2 packets packet index: 14,351,273, PID: 0x177A, missing 6 packets packet index: 14,351,416, PID: 0x0000, missing 11 packets
Given the "this can't be random" timing of when this happens, and the fact that I can get different results from different tuners on the same device, I'm reaching out for some help Is this perhaps an early sign of a hardware failure or just something that's normal, if out of the ordinary?
I turned on diagnostics on device 131EB7F7 (HDHR3-CC, Firmware 20200121beta1), and it's still recording TNT to the RECORD engine on tuner 0. I have two cURL instances pulling the same channel from tuner 1 and tuner 2 and
are set to run for an hour each. So there should be some data to look at for that device across three tuners for the 7:00PM EST time frame (when the clock gets there, of course, it's only 6:30PM now).
edit: test results
Tuner 0 stream (recorded) is now showing 2 instances of the missing packets, that stream has been running since 5:30PM. I don't believe either instance was present before I enabled diagnostics, but I can't guarantee that.
Tuner 1 stream (live) showed 1 instance of the missing packets, should be in diagnostics.
Tuner 2 stream (live) is perfectly fine -- again, this is the from the same channel as Tuner 0 and Tuner 1 are/were streaming.
Tuner 1 and Tuner 2 streams were started within a couple seconds of each other, but the instance on Tuner 1 is very close to the beginning of the file (around packet 233,000, or around 43MB into the stream), there is no way that happened at 7:00PM.
I should be able to set something up to let a couple tuners just run all night with diagnostics on if that helps.
Thanks in advance for any insight!
