Hallo,

On seldom occations I still (again) get the VDSB error :(

This time I saw some cVideoRepacker infos in the Syslog that might help
clear up some things !?
See attached logfile.

Unfortunatly I first saw this error yesterday evening and already had
deleted the recording (if that would be of any use).

System :
Suse 9.1
Vanilla Kernel 2.6.11.7

2 x DVB-s (rev. 1.6-4mb + 1.3)
vdr-1.3.29 with several patches and several plugins.
dvb-kernel-20050826 
dvb-kernel-20050324 
fw-261e to 2620


Here a grep "video data stream broken" on all syslogs of this year - you
see it did not happen between February and June (added the vdr version
used at that time) :

vdr-1.3.29

And I did some research ;)

Kernel used :
2.6.10-rc1 since 15. Dec. 2004
2.6.10 (final) since 2. feb
2.6.11.8 since 8. May. 

Firmware used :
261c(+261d shortly) - used since vdr-1.3.17
261d - used since vdr-1.3.19
261e-1.4 - Around 31. may I (togehter with vdr-1.3.24) started using the
New Firmware (1.4 !? IIRC the first of the 261e - from 26. may) that no
longer needed FW_NEEDS_BUFFER_RESERVE_FOR_AC3. 
261f - might be that I tried that since 22. august - can't say for sure.
2620 - since 29. Aug. - with vdr-1.3.30 + 29

Here a list of the DVD drivers I used, I allways started using them on
the Day that I downloaded them :
Up till vdr-1.3.17 - dvb-kernel-20041221
vdr-1.3.19 - dvb-kernel-20050118
vdr-1.3.23 - dvb-cvs-kernel-20050324)
vdr-1.3.25 - dvb-kernel-20050617
vdr-1.3.27 (20. June) - back to dvb-kernel-20050324 (more stable)
vdr-1.3.29 - dvb-kernel-20050826 (together with FW 2620)

So if I see this right it comes down to that it probably is caused by
the New Firmware or maybe something that was changed in VDR >= 1.3.25 ?
