I'm running the 2019-render head in Fedora 30 with nVidia nvdec
hardware, and have made several recordings from the French mezzo
channel, using the Manual Scheduler: 854x480 at 25fps, H.254. The
frontend log has lots of lines like:
E PreviewQueue: Attempted to generate preview for
'xxxx_yyyymmddhhmmss00.ts_0x0_-1s' 1402 times; >= max(50)
Running mythpreviewgen from a script or terminal causes a segfault.
Adding --size and --seconds made no difference. Playback says it's
using nvdec but previewgen says the nvdec check failed. Same with no
FireTVstick 4k using ffmpeg doesn't show a preview either, but DLNA
video and video preview are ok.
Recordings from France 24 English give previews ok, but scheduling 10
minutes gives a several GB file, hours long...
I don't know whether the problems are in new or old code, so posting
