I think the dvb-drivers is quite stable now. At least on my VDR there
are almost no problems with the stability. So I think there are maybe
zwo big issues left (I dont' know for sure) which can be "solved" by a
restart of the drivers (and VDR):
- the "good old" uknown picture type-error
- the video data stream broken-error
Is it possible to distinguish between these errors and a reception-error
due to bad signal-quality (snow on the dish, very bad weather ...)?
If there is a way to distinguish between this errors would it be
possible to make the emergency exit only if it can fix the problem?
On systems with more cards/dishes it could also help to check if there
is a ongoning recording wich has no problems (for example card 1 records
on one dish with good reception and card 2 tries to start a recording on
a dish with bad reception). Maybe if there are working ongoing
recordings the start of an additional recording which doesn't work
should not restart VDR as it interrupts the working recordings?
So maybe a preferd behaviour of VDR could be:
upt or vdsb-error --> EmergencyExit if there is no working recording; do
errors which can be lead back to reception-issues --> do nothing
What do you think?
