I'm seeing this too, if I seek any faster than 3x or jump. Running CVS
I've also been having problems with auto-transcoding. I know some
changes went in recently, but I thought I'd addressed them by tweaking
the appropriate settings. Basically, what I'm seeing is that any newly
scheduled recordings are not auto-transcoding (even though I've checked
and re-checked every setting relating to auto-transcode both in the UI
*and* the database itself. All of my recordings have 'autotranscode' =
1 and 'transcoder' = 0 in the 'record' table, yet it seems like only my
'old' scheduled recordings are being transcoded.
I think this may be contributing to the seeking problem, as the
transcoded (MPEG-4) programs seem to seek just fine; I think it's just
MPEG-2 programs that exhibit the problem.
I had another problem recently (when everything was still transcoding)
where I had to turn off libmpeg2 decoding because my transcodes were
coming out with stuttering audio. But that's another issue...
Anyone have any clues?
