Beta [Real-time scheduling] schedule without rebooting

Thank you.

I'm away for the next two weeks, and will be using the web-if to control the HDR (via a VPN to 'be on my local network'). If this was to happen again is there anyway to stop the recording via the web-if?

Last night I had the 'Occasionally a recording will just keep going past the time it should have stopped' bug.

Is there anyway to lower the chance of this happening?

Black Hole, does it ever happen to you? I'm wondering if keeping my Humax on 24/7 would help.
Runaway recordings are extremely rare and I haven't seen one since we successfully identified and fixed a bug in April
Nobody else has reported a runaway since then,
The code has been out of Beta for a long time now - so it would best to start a new thread in the main forum

We will need a lot more detail of the circumstances of your problem
Firstly are you up to date with customised firmware and all packages, in particular what version of the nugget package do you have installed?
Were you able to stop the recording using the remote control or did you need to power off the machine.
Did you schedule or delete scheduled recordings whilst the recording was in progress?
If it occurs again try to issue from a telnet command line
Code:
nugget tuners.dump
nugget recordings
nugget schedule.timers
nugget schedule.entry <slot number>
Where <slot number> is the number for the problem recording

You can try using the webif remote control page to send a STOP button signal to the Humax
A random hang/crash is far more likely than another runaway and it is useful to have your Humax connected to a time switch to force an overnight power off which will prevent you losing more than a days worth of recordings and also kill a runaway should it occur.

RTS is apparently not running. A programme scheduled by RS mid-morning still pending. RS is showing last synced 7:12pm and I know has synced several times before that. Which packages does it use? How do I get it working again please?Annotation 2020-06-29 193551.png

Try nugget ping to see if it replies Pong

Check your advanced setting to ensure RTS is enabled
A reboot may be needed

Replied pong.

Pending schedule now processed. Obviously working but not as quickly as expected. I have noticed other, mainly auto-schedule seem to hang about all day.

My boxes are left on all day, even though RS seems to sync every 3 hours or so.

I was going by the last seen time on RS. Is the 10 minutes user definable?
Yes, in /mod/var/spool/cron/crontabs/root
Code:
*/10 * * * * /mod/sbin/rs_process >> /mod/tmp/rs.log 2>&1
But in your case the recording was in Pending rather than Queued status showing that it had been received by the Humax and was awaiting a reboot (eg RTS had not scheduled it)

Look at nugget.log and rsvsync.log for any clues

BTW Nugget.log timestamps show GMT not BST, rsvsysnc is in BST

rsvsync.log = looks like it stopped working for several hours. I copying some files off this box for an hour or so late morning, but box remained on all day and was not locked or anything when I went to it this evening.

rsvsync doesn't run continually or at regular intervals. it only runs when there is work to do.
It seems to have stopped in the morning when it encountered a locked database
Code:
4990    Mon Jun 29 10:11:06 2020: Failed: database is locked (database is locked)
It is not clear what triggered it into action again at 19:51

It would be nice if it retried the database locked error or scheduled a later rerun

I was going by the last seen time on RS. Is the 10 minutes user definable?
Yes, but 10 mins is the default. That's the schedule on which the rs package on the HDR-FOX checks the RS site for new instructions, and where the "last seen" comes from, and if missing for a while emails you about it.

Not sure if this is related to the problems I was having with the same box earlier in the week, but I now have items stuck in RS. RS shows two items auto scheduled this morning, the scheduled reboot I entered (after I discovered that tunefix-update had been updated) and two auto scheduled items I wanted to delete about an hour ago. None have been implemented on the box.

Annotation 2020-07-03 010955.png

Th RS log looks like it is throwing up an error repeatedly. Any ideas?

Try editing /mod/sbin/rs_process at lines 180, 191 and 202 to change this:
set newservice [get_channel_attr_byorglcn $lcn usSvcid]​
to this:
set newservice [get_channel_attr_byorglcn $lcn usSvcId]​

It might be case-sensitive - usSvcid vs usSvcId

Looking further down the schedule I can see that the show “Harlow” (which seems to be where it falls over) is scheduled for an earlier showing on the 5th, so I would normally delete the second showing. I will try that first, to see if it clears the blockage.

I really don’t know what is going on here.

Having checked the queue in RS, the schedule in webif and the RS log, I made my last post. When I went back to RS to delete the queued showing of “Harlow”, all of yesterday’s queue had gone, but this morning’s additions to the auto-queue (from which I had removed a couple of items) is still waiting.

The RS log shows this
Code:
 5000 *Trying source service/event ID.

“Running for Pleasure” was one of the items I deleted from RS, but the remaining two are still queuing. I have just left them in for testing.

@prpr I am not sure I feel confident changing lines of code, especially as the before and after look the same to me.

set newservice [get_channel_attr_byorglcn $lcn usSvcid]​
to this:
set newservice [get_channel_attr_byorglcn $lcn usSvcId]​

It might be case-sensitive - usSvcid vs usSvcId
Receently @af123 introduced a new svc class to replace the use of the findhsvc
'get_channel_attr_byxxxx' methods but left an updated findhsvc for compatibility with othe packages,
It apears that it isn't fully compatible :(
