I've been playing around with these values and have discovered the following
(I only have SD channels - none HD) when replaying recordings.
Setting engine.buffers.audio_num_buffers to 2300 (10x default) does help
with the skips in audio - where under the default value (230) I
intermittantly get 2-3 second jumps in audio.
#engine.buffers.video_num_buffers is left at the default of 500. If I set
this any higher, fast forwarding or rewinding causes the video to jump about
engine.buffers.video_num_frames (default 15) I've had to set to 60.
Anything less than this seems to make the video jump 2-3 seconds, in line
with the audio_num_buffers described above. With this set to 60, there's no
lost audio but video/audio still gets out of sync, and it gets worse and
worse for 20 seconds then the audio stops and the video catches up. Also
with anything <60, I get PPPPPPPP on the vdr console when replaying
My question is - this version of vdr-xine, and every version since 0.8.1,
gives me these audio and video problems. Under version 0.8.0 I have none of
these problems at all. The only reason I'm trying to upgrade is because
0.8.0 is now so old.
