Sometimes what happens:

1. Service in PiP is 'alternative services', tuner C (dvb-t)

2. Service in main is another 'alternative services', tuner A (dvb-s2)

(both 'alternative services' have: one service form dvb-t and one from dvb-s2)

3. Press '0' (configured to move pip to main screen), black screen + correct sound (correct service sound)

4. Swap away to another (dvb-s2, tuner A) service and sound and video is correct BUT on info bar both tuners A & C are lit (A is green and C is orange/yellow(?)).

5. Swap to service 'alternative services' as in 1. and everything is back to normal (tuner C is selected and is green in inforbar - I have T/S/C priority set).

 

No recording, streaming, transcoding in the meantime...

 

PTS is installed and set up for automatic start after 5 seconds.

And now with the alternatives.... this is a never ending story... and to make this correctly a part of enigma2 should be partly completely rewritten.... Making a lot of stuff incompatibable for something rarely used....

 

But you installed PTS..? PTS is hacking arround in enigma2... what without PTS plugin?

 

It can be that enigma2 sees tuner C busy....when selecting an alternative service and then chooses a different unexpected source... Can you try to stop the pip service before changing the mainscreen? This might free the pip tuner before "swapping"

You might be right about this. And yet another problem that might be connected with this issue http://openpli.org/f...ative-services/.

 

I do not understand Can you try to stop the pip service before changing the mainscreen? This might free the pip tuner before "swapping" part. How to stop PiP and swap?

 

BTW, the problem looks like it is kind of race condition as I was not able to determine the steps to reproduce the problem. It happened once and now I cannot reproduce it at all. I will make a lot of PiPing, the problem may appear again then.

 

Just one thought:

It happened on newest drivers (17.12), I had them hard copied to appropriate lib subfolder (as openPLi had not had them it its feeds at that time).

In other images I noticed that there is an updated transcoding plugin with 'decoder' selections; options were 0 & 1 and for option 1 there was an information message that it is mutually exclusive with PiP. Might it be that newest vu+ drivers tries to force tuner B for PiP and its logic is somehow buggy when you do a lot of PiP swapping?

It is just my hunch, nothing that I know how to test.

But now i see vu duo.... It could be driver related.... I mean since the new drivers... The possibly "race".
