Hi!

About once a week I get this errors in syslog:

Feb 25 20:01:19 server vdr[20828]: ERROR: unknown picture type '6'
Feb 25 20:01:20 server vdr[20828]: ERROR: unknown picture type '7'
Feb 25 20:01:21 server vdr[20828]: ERROR: unknown picture type '4'
Feb 25 20:01:22 server vdr[20828]: ERROR: unknown picture type '7'
Feb 25 20:01:23 server vdr[20828]: ERROR: unknown picture type '7'
Feb 25 20:01:39 server vdr[20828]: ERROR: unknown picture type '5'
Feb 25 20:01:42 server vdr[20828]: ERROR: unknown picture type '4'
Feb 25 20:01:51 server vdr[20828]: ERROR: unknown picture type '7'
Feb 25 20:01:52 server vdr[20828]: ERROR: unknown picture type '6'
Feb 25 20:02:09 server last message repeated 3 times
...

The recordings during this errors are "junk". I can't view this
recordings.
After stopping VDR and unloading the dvb-drivers the errors are gone.

I searched with Google for this problem and found only the workaround to
restart (automatically) VDR when this happens. Some folks also wrote
that a bad singal from satellite could be the reason, but the
femon-plugin shows this values:
STR: 67%
SNR: 88%
BER: 0
UNC: 0
Are this bad values? (I don't think so.)

What is the reason for the "unknown picture type"?

I use Kernel 2.6.10, the DVB-drivers which come with 2.6.10 and VDR
1.2.26 on Gentoo-Linux with two FF Hauppauge Nexus-S-cards (rev2.1).

Stephan.
