[vdr] Instability with recordings on VDR-1.7.4 when recording to a NTFS partition

2009-03-22 Thread Hawes, Mark
If I pause live video then restart it starts in slo-mo i.e. judders, and then eventually freezes, but may then start again, still juddering and freezing ... Well, then I have no idea why it wouldn't work with an NTFS partition, while it does work with others. Klaus Hi Klaus,

I've never had a problem like this in older VDR versions, and I often do cutting and recording at the same time. Strange - the code for actually writing the index file hasn't changed between PES and TS recording. But maybe you can take a closer look at the changes to cIndexFile between

Well, if there are buffer overflows and the TS data is corrupted, it's no wonder the index file stops growing. Does this happen on all channels, or only on some (or even only on a particular one)? Well, I've tried it on several channels ARD,ZDF,arte,Das Vierte,MünchenTV and so on.

A TS recording is only marginally more data than the same length recording in PES. I don't think that recording in TS should require so much more bandwidth than PES. That's clear to me. There must be an other problem that's causing this, but since this doesn't happen here on my system,
