Good evening Jeremy,<br><br>I don't know if this is true with the sourcecaps patch, but this deals with recording priorities. It's my understanding that recordings have a default (lower) priority and occur on secondary tuners.
<br>Look at the vdr MANUAL regarding Primary limit; which states:<br><br>The minimum priority a timer must have to be allowed to<br>use the primary DVB interface, or to force another timer<br>with higher priority to use the primary DVB interface.
<br>This is mainly useful for recordings that should take<br>place only when there is nothing else to do, but should<br>never keep the user from viewing stuff on the primary<br>interface. On systems with only one DVB card, timers
<br>with a priority below PrimaryLimit will never execute.<br><br>Anyhow, I hope the above is relevant to your issue.<br><br>Thanks again for the start that you've provided by on occasion through your id-disc topics and the several private emails over the past few years! I've been hanging out with Cym and the fellas in #vdr for the past year and have been enjoying helping others with vdr :)
<br><br>Take care,<br>george<br><br><div><span class="gmail_quote">On 1/6/06, <b class="gmail_sendername">Jeremy Hall</b> <<a href="mailto:email@example.com">firstname.lastname@example.org</a>> wrote:</span><blockquote class="gmail_quote" style="border-left: 1px solid rgb(204, 204, 204); margin: 0pt 0pt 0pt 0.8ex; padding-left: 1ex;">
Hello,<br><br>My sourcecaps looks like this:<br><br>SourceCaps = 1 S1W S2W S3W S4W<br>SourceCaps = 2 S1W S2W S3W<br><br>Card1 is a budget card<br><br>Card2 is a FF card and is PrimaryDevice.<br><br>I was watching a channel on S4W, which meant the budget card was feeding
<br>the stream to the FF card for display. Normally when I record, I am<br>watching the FF card directly, and when the recording starts vdr spins up<br>the budget and tunes to the recording channel so that both cards are tuned
<br>to the same channel if I am watching the same chanel I am recording.<br>Anything on S4 is unavailable while recording.<br><br>When the event started on S2, I expected vdr to leave card0 alone and tune<br>card1 (the ff card) to S2 and start recording from the FF card.
<br><br>Instead, my program on S4 was rudely interrupted, vdr switched to the<br>recording channel, and refused to let me watch the S4 content.<br><br>I tried a variety of cluges, including two timers, one on S2 and one on
<br>S4--that yielded about 30 seconds of content showing then vdr just died.<br><br>Does anybody understand what might be going on?<br><br>_J<br><br>_______________________________________________<br>vdr mailing list<br><a href="mailto:email@example.com">
