For what it's worth, I can confirm that the automatic start and stop information for Death In Paradise was broadcast okay on BBC 1 HD in the London area.
Hi, had a look in the eventlog, it did start recording for Death in Paradise however it never seemed to obtain the PMT data so never started recording the stream for that program, that data is broadcast continually so I'm thinking some corruption caused that bit of the code to exit without completing. I will have a look at the code and see if I can find where it might have gone wrong and how it might recover better.I have a small problem with dvrontime. Last night it was set to record beyond paradise bbc1 at 8 then death in paradise bbc1 at 9. Also desperate measures channel 5 at 9. Beyond paradise & desperate measures were ok but there was nothing recorded for death in paradise . Web interface claimed recorded but maybe not entirety . I have a twin runner . Log file attached. Any ideas please.
Had a look at the code to try and see what might have happened. It appears when the tuner was asked to filter and return the packets with the ID 100, which in turn identifies all the packets required to be pulled from the MUX in order to save the program, the tuner went quiet and never returned the required packets of data. I can't say why that would be as it would have happened upstream from the code. I will add some debug code and see if I can make it self recover if it doesn't get any packets from the tuner having requested them after a few seconds. It might be worth while enabling the debug logs in case you get something similar again as that will capture more info from the tuner commands and responses.Hi thankyou for taking a look

Thanks for the debug log, it seems to be a continuation of the same problem where it isn't obtaining the data required from the transport stream in order to know which packets to record so it doesn't record anything. I do have some time this week so will do some changes and get a test version to you. I'm suspecting the tuner isn't receiving the command and some small packets are getting dropped. Is it a wired network or is DvrOnTime connected via Wi-Fi?There seems to be a problem with the drama channel . It claims to start recording but doesn't stop and produces no file. This has happened to me several times now. Hopefully you can help I set up a test with debug turned on log file attached.
I wrote my own software to decode EITpf (and several other things) and log the changes.prpr: How do you get the transmission events,?
No. It decodes whatever is fed to it from whichever transmitter channel I have tuned (currently PSB3). It makes little difference as all the service info. is delivered to all muxes for all services contained therein (and for regionalised adjacent area services - the things you learn when you start observing!).Does your software use an specific transmitter?
Likewise.I am using the mendip transmitter
Just to add the EIT isn't the problem with your non-recordings, the EIT is read correctly and the recording is set to start. The problem appears to be some issue with the tuner not starting correctly when its ask to return other packets. I can't replicate the problem but I'm adding a watch dog timer that will identify a stalled tuner and will restart it, along with better recovery from a network problems. Hopefully can get something to you today or tomorrow to test with and see if that resolves the issues you are experiencing.Does your software use an specific transmitter?

With the CF, there is the facility to get RS to do a text search and auto-schedule hits. That's way better than a manual timer!On Safari with Jane McDonald, Channel Five HD is not showing as a series, is there a way of scheduling a manual weekly timer to record this like there is on the Humax?
It seems Channel 5 haven't indicated this is a series so they haven't added a series code. They don't indicate it is a series either in the program description although it should be her new series of travel programs. There is no manual option to set a recording to repeat, its all guide driven.On Safari with Jane McDonald, Channel Five HD is not showing as a series, is there a way of scheduling a manual weekly timer to record this like there is on the Humax?
Okay thanks for that, had it happen a few times with Channel 5It seems Channel 5 haven't indicated this is a series so they haven't added a series code.

There is no manual option to set a recording to repeat, its all guide driven.
I would check a bit later in the week as I expect Channel 5 will update the guide so the full series can be set, unless this is a one off and the actual series starts a few weeks later.
It already does have a nice search and schedule functionHow about adding EPG-text-search-&-schedule to your software? Not that I use it... yet.
is that persistent though?It already does have a nice search and schedule function
Yes it could be done of course and the database would allow some sophisticated searching options, just having the time really to do it.How about adding EPG-text-search-&-schedule to your software? Not that I use it... yet.
