Hi everybody, i have a question regarding the streamdev plugin. I have 2 tv cards, both gets accessed with the pvrinput plugin, but the problem i have would be the same with dvb devices. I also watch TV on the PC with the two cards.
I have another pc (laptop) with vdr installed. There i installed the streamdev-client plugin. When switching the channel on the laptop with the up/down keys, the live picture gets interrupted with a black screen for about half a second. My wife doesn't like this very much. I had a look into the source code and found following: - The receiver of the pc has the priority 0, the receiver of the streamdev-server 1. - When switching with the up/down keys, the streamdev-client sends an "PROV"-Message to the streamdev-server. The streamdev-server tries to get a device (Method cServerConnection::GetDevice). The Receiver of the "old" streamdev-channel is still receiving. - The Method cServerConnection::GetDevice calls cDevice::GetDevice. The priority in the function call is 1. In the cDevice::GetDevice method the devices gets iterated, calling on each device the method cDevice::ProvidesChannel. Because the priority property of this call is 1, the "old" receiver of the streamdev-server has also a priority of 1 and the live-receiver has the priority of 0, the only device which can provide the channel is the device of the live-tv. - In the latter of the method cDevice::GetDevice the live-receiver gets detached via "d->DetachAllReceivers". Later in the code of cServerConnection::GetDevice, if the Method cDevice::GetDevice doesn't return a device, the current receiver gets detached. In my infrastructure this doesnt happend because the live receiver will nearly always gets detached ( The only exception is when a timer records). To prevent this, i changed the code in that way that the streamdev-receiver gets detached before calling cDevice::GetDevice). Is the detaching of live-tv an known issue or is this a feature ? Should have the live tv receiver a priority greather than streamdev-receiver ? If so, the live-tv wouldn't get detached ?
