I'm getting shitty artifacts on the recordings. Any pointers on where to start to fix this?

I am assuming that you are using the latest release... Are you using the settings in the example .bat file for launching PrimeNetEncoder? Did you check to see if you are getting these same artifacts with HDHomeRun view app? Can you post your primenetencoder.properties.

Yes, latest 1.25 RC1. Yes on the .bat. No artifacts on the HDHR View app.

If you have it scheduled to run in Windows Scheduler did you change the priority?

Is PrimeNetEncoder on the same machine as Sage?

How often are these glitches happening? Every minute, Every Half Hour, Every Hour...

Is this possibly a VMware vmdk performance issue? I am going to lean towards this being a system issue. I do not think anyone else is experiencing this issue.

Did you try rolling back to version 1.0.1 ? If so does the issue still happen.

CPU is always under 40%. I'll try to roll back.

Edit 10/23/15: OK, i'm thinking maybe the priority for the task was at the default of 7. thought I changed it to 4 in the XML and re-imported, but I went thought this a couple of times so it may have been reset. we'll run for a while and see how it goes.


since I've come up to v1.2.5 and and also started running as a console app, outside of the SageTV process, I've been having occasional halts. before that when I was running as a class within SageTV and v1.01 it was running great and i never had a single halt.

i'm running the the process with parameters from the 1.2.5 .bat file:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre6\bin\java.exe" -XX:-UseBiasedLocking -XX:NewSize=50M -Xms128m -Xmx256m -jar "C:\Program Files (x86)\SageTV\SageTV\PrimeNetEncoder.jar"


the latest halt was tonight. I have the tuner log here. Looks like it gave up after 5 seconds. after that Sage fell back to one of my HD-PVR's.

the halt the night before was Jeopardy!. there were 16x failures marked in system messages. here's a partial log from that.

i have a hunch the failures are happening when more than one recording starts simultaneously. not all PrimeNetEncoder recordings are failing though since I upgraded.

So the first halt I can not explain. I can think of no reason Sage would give up on a recording within 6 seconds. I would call that a fluke.

The second recording I can not explain. I am going to need to add some more logging to the code. I need to verify that ffmpeg is running, and that there are no copy protection flags present. I may also decide on my reset tuner code to also restart ffmpeg. Right now it is just changing the channel again, and it is setting the stream iport again on the tuner.

I will look into making these changes soon.

I am having this exact same issue on my own vmware system. Exact same symptoms and config as mayamaniac.

It happened to me moving from old hardware to a new much more powerful server and I updated the to 1.2.5 at the same time. I reverted back to the old server running 1.0.1 of the encoder which works just fine (to the same NAS etc..)

I am doing a bit of travel, but when I am back I will try and move VM over to the new hardware and not upgrade to 1.2.5, but just leave the config exactly the same and see if that works fine too.

Does the plugin do synchronous writes or something weird? Usually when I have seen this problem before it's because the system can't handle writes properly because of lack of buffering or some other issue resulting in not all the data being written to the file, resulting in the corruption that mayamaniac captured in the photo.

This is why I was asking what all those batch line parameters meant, as I am trying to debug where the data might be getting lost.

Thanks!
Mike

The file writing method is a good theory. In version 1.0.1 ffmpeg was doing the writing. In 1.2.5 SageTV medianserver is doing thwe file writing. I am not sure how well tested the option is, but you could try setting mediaserver.transfer to false. In that case either PrimeNetEncoder or ffmpeg would handle writing.

Ah, that makes sense. I was unaware of the media server writing capability - I don't think I've ever used a plugin that used that to write to the filesystem.

Will try this and see what happens.

Thanks again for all your work on this encoder!

Mike

I just tested it. Set mediaserver.transfer=false fixed it. Many thanks to both Mike and Josh for figuring it out.

Edit: Just wondering, is there an advantage to having SageTV mediaserver write the file instead of ffmpeg?

biggest advantage is permissions immunity. Sage is obviously going to have permissions to write to the file, while a network encoder, especially one on a different system, is not guaranteed to have it worked out. This sort of skips that step.

There's no such thing as permission immunity. :P

Since I'm running everything on the same machine, it shouldn't make any difference then

Looks like I spoke to soon. Switching mediaserver.transfer=false reduces the write errors glitches, but not completely. It's about 80% less, but that's with one recording going. When 2 or 3 going at the same time, the glitches are 10 times worse. This problem is only with the HDHR Prime recordings, the regular HDHR OTA tuner records without issues.
