So I'm still having the same issues after the mysql maintenance.

Does the R5E50 release have the same issue where install hangs if you have pvr250 and hd-5500 in at the same time?

Thanks!

Not that I'm aware of.

Looking at the upgrade tips in detail reminded me of the sound issue in R5D1: The kernel oops I was getting on shutdown turned out to be the cx88_alsa module conflict when running on-board sound and a DVB card documented here:

http://mysettopbox.tv/phpBB2/viewtopic. ... nd&start=0

I added cx88_alsa to the blacklist in two places because I wasn't sure which was the good one: in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist and in /etc/hotplug/blacklist and I can now reboot without oops'.

I thought that I had gotten around this when I upgraded to r5d1 by having the hd5500's out of the box then adding them later. What is strange is that I had no problems for several months, then now the issue popped up. Although I can't remember for sure, It may be that I had not rebooted since my last upgrade.

I also do not currently use the HD5500s that are in my box, although there are a couple of channels configured on them that might get grabbed if both other pvr250s are being used. (the channels on the 5500s are also on the analog cards which have a higher priority).

Anyway ... I am going to try the box out now and see if I still have issues rather than plunge immediately into the upgrade.

Thanks!

Whoops tired eyes... I read that as "PVR500" yesterday, for some reason. The need to blacklist the cx88_alsa module for these cards still exists.

Found this regarding the IVTV dropping data / not reading fast enough error (Scroll to the end)

http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/i ... ata;#33874

I created a file called "options" in /etc/modprobe.d/ that has the following line in it:

options ivtv mpg_buffers=16

I restarted and haven't seen the error since.

HTH someone...

You can also try upgrading to the 0.10.0 ivtv drivers. There are simple instructions for doing this on the wiki. The only part I can't vouch for personally is part about getting the kernel source setup, since I'd already taken care of that by other means.

Seems this option is now enc_mpg_buffers

See your current settings by: modinfo ivtv

Yep. The R5F27 upgrade script try to take care of that for you but there's just too many places people can hide them. This is covered in the R5F27 Hints thread.
