I have a pogram recording on daily repeat. It consistently hangs in fast-forward 32x. I have to power down the machine. After restarting and trying again, it hangs again on exactly the same frame.


Station: BVN TV, Astra 19

Program: "Weerbericht Europa en Africa"


Machine: VU+ Solo

Open PLI 6.1, 2018-02-18

Kernel 3.13.5

DVB 2017-11-21


I do not record other programs from Astra 19. No problems on Astra 23 HD stations.

Anything more I can do to provide debug information?

Drivers are (and have always been) very flaky when it comes to fast-forward (or fast-reverse).


It is best to avoid it, and use the skip function again (1/3, 4/6 and 7/9 keys). You can configure the skip time in the setup.

Currently in use: VU+ Duo 4K (2xFBC S2), VU+ Solo 4K (1xFBC S2), Mutant HD66SE (S2+T2), (Octagon SF8008 (S2+T2), Zgemma H9.2H (S2+T2)

Due to my bad health, for the forseeable future I will no longer be active. I will not read the forum or PM.

Many answers to your question can be found in our new and improved wiki.

You can also decide to block the 32x speed if it gives problem so limit the fast-forward to a speed which is working.

But I also use the jump keys instead of the fast forward to avoid those problems.

NO SUPPORT by PM, it is a forum make your question public so everybody can benefit from the question/answer.
