    HDHomeRun live TV can't lock, but recordings work

    I have a strange situation where I can't get a lock on channels when I try live tv, but if I use the channel guide to set a recording, the show records and plays back just fine.

    I've even set 2 shows to record at the same time using the HDHomeRun and they record fine. I was thinking that maybe one tuner was goofed up, but that doesn't appear to be the case.

    How do I go about troubleshooting this? I've checked the backend, but I don't see anything suspicious.

    Start the frontend with extra verbose logging..

    There is a separate fast-tuning option for liveTV & recording..
    Fast tuning is less reliable..

    It seems that guy had low signal on his cable, but in any case, I did change the fast tuning to "never". It was set to always, but it didn't help.

    Here is the verbose log. The issue I replicated was when changing to channel 3_1. I looked through for when I attempted to change to channel 3_1, but it is a bit greek to me reading through this.

    Re: HDHomeRun live TV can't lock, but recordings work

    The backend is what controls the tuners..
    The FE log seems to show that a "failed to open socket" error

    The end of that thread suggests signal level is not the cause..

    So need to see part of the BE log..

    You might want to go into the theme chooser & update the themes you have used.

    Oh, yeah, I see that. I updated the theme to the new version. Thanks.

    Here is a chunk of the backend log from /var/log/mythtv/mythbackend.log at a time when I re-created the issue.

    Re: HDHomeRun live TV can't lock, but recordings work

    This looks suspect ?

    Do you have to use a channel changer script with HDHomerun ? I don't think that is right..

    The backend is showing a similar socket error..
    I don't know what that really means.
    You have a livetv storage group setup on the backend partnered with the network tuner ?

    Does that livetv storage group have any files in it ?

    It looks quite wrong that it is referring to a device that seems to be an HDPVR!

    In fact an HDHR doesn't have a device anyway, it is accessed over your network.

    The HDPVR is linked to a device.

    The HDHomeRun is linked to an IP.

    For some reason (I believe because of the order by which I added my tuner cards), the HDPVR is the first one it tries. After it's initial live TV tune (to the HDPVR), I changed the channel to 3_1 which is an OTA channel on the HDHomeRun.

    And yes, the HDPVR requires a channel change script. The HDHomeRun does not have a channel change script.

    The reason I use a symbolic link for my tuner devices is because the devices seem to load in random orders each time the computer reboots, so I have to run the backend to correct it. The symbolic links seem to track that. But in any case the HDHomeRun does not use a dev, it is set to an IP.

    so you are switching tuners, i don't think that was clear on your earlier posts!

    At which line of your output do you switch to the hdhr?

    If you switch to another channel on the hdpvr does it work?

    If you start live tv on the hdhr does it work? and can you then switch to another channel?

    At which line of your output do you switch to the hdhr?

    If you switch to another channel on the hdpvr does it work?

    If you start live tv on the hdhr does it work? and can you then switch to another channel?
    I can not tune live tv with the HDHR. The HDPVR works just fine. It doesn't really change channels because it is connected to a static device (WDLive or Roku or whatever), but it still requires a channel change script of /bin/true or an actual channel change script if you are using a cable set top box.

    I can change to another input, which is an analog PCI tuner card and that works on live tv just fine.

    However, like I mentioned before, the HDPVR is always the first device that is tuned and I must change to a different input from there...whether it be the analog card or my HDHR.

    I'm not sure which line in the log is the change to the HDHR, but it is right after it first automatically tunes to the HDPVR. In respect to time, it is probably within 5 seconds after that.
