[boot-settings] Apply settings during boot

prpr

Well-Known Member
After yet another wizard reinstall all channels / lcns were reinstalled and there are Adult channels available on the HDR that are accessible, unlocked, and innapropriate for some viewers. eg Lcn 673 adult smiletv3 which the HDR Fox displays without problems .

Wizard resets and OTA rescans are bothersome as these channels are reinstalled.
Easily fixed with tunefix.

Did anyone ever try my suggestion in post #75?

This package doesn't appear to work as intended on my box, I installed as Content Sharing keeps turning itself off!

However with this when Content Sharing is off it just seems to persuade the webif its back on without actually turning it back on, so detectAds tries to run on a file but then reports length error (full size of file) as it can't access it.

I have to switch Content Sharing on with the box menus then reboot to restore normal operation, which is more hassle than before!

Something is seriously odd on your box,

While Content Sharing turning itself is not unknown it is not normally a regular event, Once or twice a year is more normal
When I turn it on/off with the box menus I don't need to reboot nor do I experience any problems from the boot settings

Clutching at straws a bit
  • have you tried rebuilding the dlna index from diagnostics menu?
  • have you ever altered the decryption key?
  • have you kept the original, encrypted, recording for further debugging?
  • can you decrypt the file using the webif interface or autodecrypt when it is in the 'appears to be on but isn't' state
  • anything in the logs? (chaseget, detectads, auto.log)

I only have to reboot with the boot-setting faking the Content Sharing setting. It turns off 2 to 3 times a week!

have you tried rebuilding the dlna index from diagnostics menu?
No, just done that though, see if it has an affect.

have you ever altered the decryption key?
No

have you kept the original, encrypted, recording for further debugging?

Their in the bin, I can check next time it happens.

anything in the logs? (chaseget, detectads, auto.log)
This is the auto log, detectads.log is and always has been empty, regardless of log settings.

Ah DLNA Server is NOT running. is a totally different kettle of fish from Content Sharing Disabled
You don't have a problem with the Content share becoming disabled, it was active when checked by detectads 1 second earlier. Chaseget would have repeated the disabled message if it was disabled.

Normally the DLNA server runs when then system is active but is stopped when recording in standby mode, chaseget wakes the system from standby if the system is in standby but this should have caused a System power on attempted message in the log.
So why was the DLNA server not running if the system was not in standby?
It appears that it starts up on system start-up but something is causing it to stop, your network must still be active or you wouldn't be able to access the webif.

Me too am getting the DLNA server not running.
It started producing the error on 08/01/19. It had not happened since the start of the chaseget log on 14/12/18

What's been changed to cause this?

You don't have a problem with the Content share becoming disabled, it was active when checked by detectads 1 second earlier.
If it is on, why is the box menu saying it is off? And why does changing the setting there fix the immediate issue?

I changed the logging to report when the server is not running and Power on/off attempts with the last chaseget update that prevented it waiting indefinitely.
Previously they were only logged with debugging logging level turned on.
In @Trev 's case it is showing the system working correctly, the server is not running because the system is is standby so it issues a power on to activate the system and there are no subsequent Not running messages for that programme. Later the system is powered off again after the recording completes. You are not seeing the loop of repeated Not Running messages a minute apart

Thanks Myms. Just wondered why 'all of a sudden' it started showing in the log. But you just explained that, thanks.
Me too will go away (for now).

I suspect the box is actually showing whether or not the DLNA server is active combing the two different flags for display convenience, The Webif DLNA Reset page shows the two flags separately
[B]Server Status[/B] Enabled -> Running.

Re-enabling it via the box would restart the server - something that should happen automatically every time the box comes out of standby.
AFAIK we have no way in the webif to start/stop the DLNA server other that bringing the using the remote control power on/off commands.
I don't know of any diagnostics that could show why the DLNA server was not running while it was powered on - hopefully rebuilding the DLNA database will cure the underlying problem. Maybe @af123 can suggest other things to try if that doesn't improve things

Oh no, the problem is back again and it fails every day currently. It has occurred since I had the crash when setting up the new aerial so that may be significant.

Looking a the DLNA Server Information is says: Server Status Enabled - Not Running.
In the box menu it says Content Sharing: Off

Simply turning Content Sharing: On does nothing (Server Information remains as above) Leaving Content Sharing alone and trying to reset the server gives:

Code:
To reset the DLNA Database, disable Content Sharing in the Humax menus at
Settings->System->Internet Setting->Content Share
and click the button again.
I have to turn Content Sharing On, then Off, then reset DLNA Server, then turn Content Sharing On again to restore operation.

So any idea what is actually going wrong?

PS The setting appears to change whilst the box is in operation!

Possibly you have a corrupted recording that is upsetting DLNA. Finding it might be tricky though.
Or a corrupted entry in the DLNA database that causes the server to shut down when it encounters it.
Rebuilding the DLNA database cures the problem until another corruption occurs which could easily be caused by a crash whilst updating.

Yes, but he's already been through the DLNA database reset procedure, so I think the balance of probabilities is on a bad recording rather than a random crash during an update.
I think the only way out of this is via divide and conquer - move all recordings off and see if it restores reliability. If it does, then put half of them back and repeat until you find which half causes the problem. It's tedious and time-consuming and you need external storage to match at least the size of all recordings.

Rebuilding the database at least provided a three week respite from the problem while it was almost daily before.
If it was a recording problem why would rebuilding database cure it albeit temporarily

We know that databases on the Humax are not the most robust with occasional problems reported on the queue, sysmon, epg and others
