[linux-dvb] Re: dvbstream eventually stops
Just to let you know, further testing showed that the DVB driver hangs in
the wait_event_interruptible in the ring_buffer_write function (av7110.c).
Seems like the ring buffer is getting too full, but I don't understand yet
why he doesn't get out of this situation.

Yes, we have a similar problem.
We have kernel 2.4.21, dvb 1.0.1, WinTV NEXUS-s and play streams from
harddisk. Our software is continuously reading a transport stream from
disk, which sends the data via a dummy front end to the linux dvb demux.
When I zap to some specific service in a specific stream, the streamings
stops, because the dvb driver somewhere goes wrong. It always happens with
the same service, so it looks like filtering some specific data in the
stream causes this behaviour.

I have a problem with dvbstream where dvbstream after running for hours
stops. It stops in the sense that it doesn't output more data. Pressing a
and restarting dvbstream makes it runs happily again for hours.
Has anybody else seen this behaviour ?
What I have is a 2.6.6 kernel with 1 budget, 2 budget-ci and one full
They are each tuned into the same satellite but at different frequencies.
As an example, we can take last night. I started 3 streams in the late
and around 02:30 am one dvbstream stops (await input). Then at about 09:30
the two other streams stops (await input) at approx. the same time.
Any suggestions of what to look out for ? What could cause the receiver to
loose tuning/locking of the signal ? I'm not sure that happens, but that
for sure makes dvbstream stops.
