Description

I noticed the following in the debug log:

Montage Technology DS3000/TS2020: FE_READ_UNCORRECTED_BLOCKS returns delta updates (delta=-11)
Montage Technology DS3000/TS2020: FE_READ_UNCORRECTED_BLOCKS returns delta updates (delta=-10)

This happens with a clean config and an old config, the above (DVB-S2 card) also appears for DVB-T usb devices.

Apologies if this post isn't useful, first time using redmine. :P

This is not a bug .... but a "feature" of tvheadend.

Some DVB drivers have a different implementation of the FE_READ_UNCORRECTED_BLOCKS fucntion. Instead of reporting an ever increasing number .. they report the delta since that last call. Apparently your dvb device is using a driver that has implemented that. In order for tvheadend to deal with that we set a specific parameter when we detect such a driver.

Getting reports about uncorrect blocks is usually a sign of bad signal quality .. so I would suggest you keep an eye on it .. and check your cables etc.
