Thanx for the hint, checking now.
As for the recordings problem, just compiled and checked:
First of all, I still have to have the option "Do not store the EPG in the database" turned on, otherwise I get some weird stuff at epg.
The good thing is that the timer appeared in the timers page as soon as I started recording the current channel.
The bad thing(s) is that the "Now recoding" popup on the main screen remains the same (only the label and the icon changes, the program and channel info are wrong) and that the new recording still does not appear on the recordings page (during or after stoping the recording).
There is progress though!

Hi guys im really new to all this but hoping for a bit of help.
I have aWinTV-NOVA S-HD (bought as a WinTV-NOVA-S-Plus). I have the release of Dharma live installed.
I put the card in, brought up TVHEADEND 2.12 and the card was detected as a Conexant CX24123/CX24109 (I havent installed any drivers).
I set up TVHEADEND for freesat UK, i.e. i went Add DVB Network by location, choose Astra 28.2E and TVHEADEND went of searching for muxes. However it keeps getting stuck on scanning the last one. The scan takes ages (a very very very long time) but then holds up on the last mux, heres an output
I left it on 12 hours and it hasnt moved from that last one and until it does i cant map the the channels with MAP DVB services to channels. How do i get past that ?
When i first set up the card it detected around 140 muxes and mapped to channels. However i followed the instructions in the first post for the 2.12 git version of TVHEADEND and got the results i see here now. I restored my PC (have a clonezilla image) with the original tvheadend but it only scanned in 40 muxes but i successfully mapped them to channels and the VDR testing branch of XBMC plays them perfectly. However now i cant get past this scan issue again. How do i know which one its stuck on or how do i force it to allow me to map the others to channels ?
Is this possibly a driver issue ?

looks like a bug in tvheadend. you could try disabling that mux in the webui (the tab next to the one where you add channels).
try #hts on freenode for help or submit a bug report on tvheadend's bug tracker.

Thats what i thought dushmaniac, however which mux would it be ? I have no clue as to which one its waiting to scan ? Sorry a little new to this.

you can see which muxes are being scanned in the debug log. look up the frequency of last one that is being scanned in the list of all muxes and disable it there.

Thanks mate, that did it. It seems its detecting a frequency of 999,999,999 which just sends it in a loop. Disabling it doesnt work so i deleted it and turned off autodetected muxes. I could then map my channels
Now i have an issue with xmltv. Setting xmltv to United Kingdom/Republic of Ireland (Radio Times) wth a 1 hour interval and enabled gets a debug output of
Quote:Apr 12 12:50:34 xmltv: Grabbing "United Kingdom/Republic of Ireland (Radio Times)" using command "/usr/bin/tv_grab_uk_rt"
i've ran /usr/bin/tv_grab_uk_rt --configure and gone through the procedure logged in as XBMC and as hts and its not updating the epg. What am i doing wrong ?
And is there anyway to get more on the EPG than now and next ?

Thanks for this howto: Running TVHeadend on a server using a FireDTV and a PVR-150 and also experience image stutter after about 5 minutes (audio starts to stutter later). This happens on both tuners (Digital and Analog), with and without vdpau.
Stopping (x) and reconnecting to the channel seems to reset it, as does switching channels.
Switching the frequency on the server using "ivtv-tune -f 768" does not solve the problem and it continues to stutter on the other channel/frequency. The frequency change takes longer than normal, probably the buffer that causes that.

execute "/path/to/grabber --configure" as user hts
first of all, if you are going to post some log here, use pastebin please.
could you pastebin an xbmc debug log please.

Thanks for helping me out mate, im getting there slowly and truly appreciate your help,. Hmmmmmm no joy im afraid.
I've tried this
Quote:sudo su hts
It tells me its going to store everything where it should
Quote:tv_grab_uk_rt uses a cache with files that it has already downloaded. Please specify where the cache shall be stored.
However upon setting up i still get the same error in tvheadend
Apr 12 14:42:58 xmltv: Grabbing "United Kingdom/Republic of Ireland (Radio Times)" using command "/usr/bin/tv_grab_uk_rt"
Apr 12 14:42:59 xmltv: No output from "/usr/bin/tv_grab_uk_rt"
I've also run the same under the xbmc user.
Im also only getting now and next on the epg ?

Sure no problem. Debug log from the moment the digital channel is selected, the last minute is while stuttering:
And as it stutters on, audio will start to stutter as well:
Let me know if you need more info.
