IPTV (Bredbandsbolaget) + newcs, Continuity counter error on encrypted channels

Added by Lukas Lundgren over 10 years ago

I recently switched to bredbandsbolaget's IPTV service. The service is connected to a separate nic and decrypting is done via newcs. The unencrypted channels works great but the encryped ones seems to get a lot of "Continuity counter error":

This results in artifacts and sometimes choppy playback. Some channels seems to be more affected than others. I'm not really sure whats wrong: routing, newcs, etc. Anyone with some pointers on how to investigate this further? I'd be happy to supply wireshark caps if necessary.

I see the same thing with the Telenor IPTV (norway)service, on the audio stream.
The sound works, but is sometimes choppy.

Only on encrypted channels; unencrypted (svt1) does not give these errors.
H264, AAC-HE.

I've since tried oscam instead of newcs but with no noticeable differences.

same problem. CPU and network usage is low, but the video stream is choppy and full of artifacts
