I used the several daily builds of mediamvp and 0.3.4 together with mythtv 0.20.2.svn20071021-0.2 and an earlier version (all from debian-multimedia.org for debian etch) since 1-2 months.
All mediamvp-versions have the same problems:
- sound and vision jitters on some videos after approx. 1/2 hour
multiple * record button or the other red button doesn't help
pause for approx. 8 seconds helps for 4 seconds but longer pauses do not help longer
stop and a new start with quickjump (1-9) to a scene before the jitter
lets me see the scene without jitter
no - the server has no problems... idling around
0-2 % cpu and 0 blocked io (vmstat)
- mediamvp reboots often
- every time on a specific keypress ("guide")
- sometimes on other keypresses
- "back" during watching a video
- walking through the filesystem
- livetv does not work (connecting to database is impossible)
somebody here has the same problem
i don't use a firewall - with mythfrontend an a pc all works fine
All these problems do not occur using mythfrontend.
I can reproduce the same problems except the reboot during walking through the filesystem (i don't use it often) with 0.3.4.
I am not a C-developer but i would like to help to remove the problems since mediamvp is a cool application!
How could i help?
I'd recommend reposting your message to one of the mailing lists:
which is where the developers are.
Several of the symptoms you mention I haven't seen. Some may be related to the recent audio sync changes. I (and hopefully others) will elaborate further if you repost on one of the lists.
