I have a strange issue to report. I'm using a GB UE 4K and solo 4k with two signal wires attached to a universal LNB pointing to 28.2.

 

If I start recording all the services I can, the GB UE 4K locks up after recording roughly 25 services. It does not respond to anything and I have to resort to "init 6" to restart the receiver. The Solo 4k can record 38 services without locking up. However, when I start to delete the timers, I can do a few and then it locks up. I then have to "init 6"

 

Can someone suggest where the problem lies? I have attached putty output.

 

 

For those curious about why I was doing this, I was  trying to demonstrate how many services you can record with a conventional LNB for those who keep associating FBC with unicable and saying there is no benefit with Universal LNB.

Secondly, when you restart E2 in debug mode, where is the debug log stored?

Afaik there is no option to save or write a debug log, never understood why that option is there as it is clearly not finished.

 

What I do is:

init 4
ENIGMA_DEBUG_LVL=4 enigma2 | tee /media/hdd/enigma.log

so you can follow what happens on the console, and still have a log on disk.

 

But I don't think you'll see much, you terminate a running timer, which triggers the spinner, meaning a call happened that never returned. Chances are that is a call into the driver...

When this happens, type dmesg and you'll see either "OOPS" or "BUG" messages from the kernel, caused by the drivers or simply nothing, because the drivers from GB have debugging output off.

 

Either way this is not an OpenPLi issue.
