Just started getting playback issues with freezes/jitters. Happen on both SD and HD programs and usually in the same place in the recordings. However waiting a while and playing back the recording corrects most of the issues. Since LINHES.org was down, i tried lots of things unsuccessfully. Running R8.1 on two HDHomeruns with and old Nvidia card.

forever...


At this time I am not sure if it hard drive, video or ethernet signal, sound, and/or configuration.

It would appear that you a have a problem with ALSA sound. It's not finding the correct device for sound.

Try this

Code:
alsamixer


What does it say for?

Card:
Chip:

Card: HDA NVida
Chip: Nvidia GPU 14 HDMI/DP
Item: S/PDIF

Noticed this on a recording that was ending and then switched quickly to live tv and the playback jitters where also on live tv for that channnel as well. Signal lock was 96 and 100 on the HDHomeRun tuning on a cable HD local broadcast channel. It was not happening on other cable local broadcast channels at the time.

Also note that 3 to 4 shows where recording at the time on 2 HDHomeruns (Cable & OTA) only this channnel had issues. Note that the jitter is not on the same channel and or frequency.

Checked the channels on HDHomeRun PC tools:

Signal Strength %: 100%
Signal Quality %: 88% - 92%
Symbol Quality %: 100%

During video playback there were not real spikes in the signals or audio jitters. However there were video artifacts in the signal every 40 seconds or so. So looks like some type of signal issue and decoding.

There seems to be a bug in mythtv in around this on a combination backend/frontend system while recording and playing non hd content at the same time.

http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/dev/563847

I replaced the amplifier on the cable signal and the problem went away for a while, but then came back, but not as often.

Thinking that this still was a hardware issue, I dug more into Nivida settings. If found a reference for the the following option at http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/VDPAU#Tearing.2FStuttering

Code:
Option         "TripleBuffer" "True"


After adding this to the /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d file I have not had anything more than a random stutter every week or so.

My video card is a GeForce GT430 which is speced to handle all VDAPU modes.

My theory is once the system would hit the triggering condition, everything would stacks up, causing mass stuttering. I did notice that the stuttering would go away when a commercial was playing sometimes(HD or SD). Guessing that re encoding of content from the tv station and/or the cable provider of the non native HD content was stressing the video card.
