Re: No PVR Subscription and related issues

There you go! More evidence that whatever new security measure has been introduced is tampering with things at the basic level, causing ch IDs to change. MCs new processes have stopped worrying about active processes on decoders. Only their own narrow internal interests matter.

Re: No PVR Subscription and related issues

An interesting failure last night with our one SBR for a series event that started @ 23:05;

 

My full 10 min. default start safety net setting means it was physically scheduled to start @ around 22:55, which it did.

The resultant recording is part of the start safety net only - it stopped after about 6 minutes.

This clearly shows that the failure occurred between about 23:00 and 23:02, a typical standard authentication adjustment period. I won't say more in the public domain.

 

As is usually normal for these current incidents, no error reports, no rescheduling.

Re: No PVR Subscription

They are all once of. Its is the 3 practice session, qualifying and main race for the weekends F1 Grand Prix. The one that went missing was the third practice session on Saturday night. I don't think it is related. Likely that supersport changed something like tweaking the starting time or something. It often happened before. They do fiddle around with the scheduling and that causes the EBR scheduled recordings to disappear. Last weekends USA F1 third practice session did not record at all even though it was still on the schedule at around 14:00 when we left home.

[Previous post deleted - got confused.]

 

Interesting Jan.

 

That may help as there's now memory confusion as to if the other example was actually also missing 2 EBRs, or if they were 2 recurring MRs (the other MRs definitely missing were once-offs).

 

 

(BTW, the EPG had also been checked and found to be fully populated at the time of the incident.)

I have 5 EBR's scheduled for the weekend. Of those one disappeared and I rescheduled it this morning when I checked for conflicts and other. These are all on Supersport.

Re: No PVR Subscription

Apparently EBRs had vanished as well, and also returned.

This was all seen when the decoder was first examined a few hours after the (confirmed) maintenance reboot.

 

For those who don't know;

SBR = Series Based Recordings, records the whole season of a series

EBR = once-off EPG (program guide) Based Recordings

MR (originally called TBR) = Manual Recordings (Time Based Recordings), can be once-off or recurring

Re: No PVR Subscription

We've got a contact among us with a test(?) Explora 1 (but uses the same L93/2 software), so this may not apply to anyone else, but...

 

This morning he found that all of his SBR generated Schedule entries had vanished, all that was there were the MRs and reminders.

The season manager with the actual SBRs themselves was fully intact though.

After a reboot it all went back to normal, so no side effects but maybe something to be alert for as well in case we weren't busy enough babysitting.

E13 seems right ?

Re: No PVR Subscription

Channel 101 is the channel that is now on open time again up to 19:00.

So how is MC implementing the switch over to open time and its termination?

What I have found is while on open time, one can on the older decoders schedule anything you like, EBRs, SBRs, TBRs. In the open time window and out of it. Schedules set that overlap the termination time, will even start recording but will terminate as soon as the switch over happens. Mostly, such recordings show no content. I will post some screen shots to illustrate.

Nowhere has MC announced the return of open time. 

I would suggest that the sw just can't handle open time anymore.

Is this the first time you have seen a SBR setting split and what is more strange, that the second part even recorded!

Which channel was that?

 

It was on Channel 101 and yes I have never seen it before. Looking at the recordings again it look like there must have been two entries for Hawaii on the EPG. But again how would the decoder handle duplicate numbered programs. The second one should have bee considered a repeat 

But the clue to the whole problem of course lies in the Episode. Did anybody notice this was E13....... Smiley LOL
