Signal/Video Problem ?

Added by Jan asd almost 5 years ago

Hi,
i managed to get kodi/tvheadend working. there is still one problem that i can not solve.
no matter what channel i want to view, all have very poor quality and are stuttering. i checked cables and devices. all seems fine. my dvb-c receiver at the tv does not have these problems (same cable etc).
here my specs, measured at different points in the house all same.
hardeware: i know it is old, but i wanted to test things before buying new stuff

and here are some errors i logged. dont have to be involved in my poor video quality problem:

[ 6484.284045] dvb-ttpci: StartHWFilter error buf 0b07 0010 0133 b96a ret 0 handle ffff

i'm wondering why my dvb-c receiver does work (most of the time) and my tv-card does not work for 5 seconds.
Ideas ?
does a newer dvb-c card help ?

thank you

Perhaps the problem needs to be found in the resources of the motherboard.
free IRQ for DVB-c?
