TVH generated a very small recording file although debug entries in syslog don't show any errors

Added by Martin Underwood 4 months ago

SOLVED!!! Not TVH problem. ITV have removed some SD regional versions on Freesat. Beware!!!!!!!!

I've never seen this before...

TVH 4.2.8-36 running on Raspberry Pi 4, Raspbios Buster, Unix kernel 5.4.83-v7l+ #1379 SMP Mon Dec 14 13:11:54 GMT 2020 armv7l GNU/Linux

I had several recordings set up for today. Most of them completed fine. But one generated a TS file that was only 3 MB (!). I've got TVH configured to call, as a postproc action, a C program that I have written which dumps the program name, episode summary etc to a text file (using the TVH command line /home/pi/postproc "%f" "%b" "%t" "%s" "%e" "%S" "%E"). And the output in that file for the rogue recording is fine, showing that my postproc was called when recording stopped at the expected time (published time + 10 minutes padding).

There were no overlapping recordings. All the recordings used the default (highest priority) tuner "PCTV 491e (DVB-S2) (Montage Technology M88DS3103)" as expected.

The relevant syslog lines (including non-TVH info just in case it proves to be relevant) are given below.

The successful recordings are "Last Word", 1555 (incl 5 min pre-padding) to 1640 (incl 10 min post-padding) and "Churchill", 2055-2210. The failed recording (TS file size 3 MB) was "Calendar", 1755-1840. (Note that Last Word is a recording from a radio channel, so there will be no video-related info!)

When I analysed the resulting .ts file using Windows program MediaInfo, it was correctly identified as type MPEG-TS, but had no bitrate or duration listed. I can attach the .ts file if it's helpful.

Had anyone got any suggestions? Is it likely to be a one-off (eg a reception glitch)? I've made well over a hundred successful recordings with the hardware/software configuration, and never seen this symptom before. There was no power cut - I checked "uptime" ;-)

RE: TVH generated a very small recording file although debug entries in syslog don't show any errors - Added by Martin Underwood 3 months ago

Problem solved! It's not a bug in TVHeadend.

It turns out that ITV have removed some of the SD versions of ITV1 from Freesat, leaving only the HD versions. https://www.freesat.co.uk/help/channel-updates

And the region that I was recording from, ITV Yorkshire (West) is one of those. So there was no service for the channel I was recording from.

I've tweaked the services so my generic "ITV" channel (chooses from satellite or terrestrial depending on which tuner is free) now uses ITV Granada rather than ITV West Yorks (Granada is the nearest region that still broadcasts in SD on Freesat), and my specific "ITV Yorkshire (West)" channel now records the HD rather than SD version.

I wonder how many more channels ITV have messed around with...

I'm surprised that TVH didn't generate an error since I was recording from a channel who only service was no longer being transmitted, even if it still existed as a service within TVH.
