No, my FF cards are unmodified. I mean that I'm not using the FF aspect -- I don't use the onboard decoder or tv output. I switched to VDPAU for decoding (back when VDPAU was developed against the xine-lib-1.1 tree), and the video cards output obviously. This was long before VDR-1.7.16 and FF support moved into a plugin ("dvbsddevice" in VDR-1.7.11). > Do you use to have arm crashes or/and "unknown picture type" errors > before ? I experienced arm crashes a very long time ago (years) and it was due to firmware, but since it was fixed there hasn't been any. I've never got an "unknown picture type" error. > I have also considered modifying my ff card but i'm not sure if it > will fix my issues. > > Any advice or feedback on that matter would really be helpful. Your card should work as is with no modifications necessary. My only advice is that you use the current firmware and driver. Maybe there's a bug in the dvbsddevice plugin? That's the only thing I can think of since there's no doubt FF cards work fine with VDR-1.7.16 when used as budget cards. _______________________________________________ vdr mailing list email@example.com http://www.linuxtv.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/vdr
