Thread: Problems changing channels in kaffeine in 11.2

  1. #1

    Default Problems changing channels in kaffeine in 11.2

    Hi,

    Changing TV channels in kaffeine worked fine in 11.1 with my dvb-t card Hauppauge HVR-4000

    After loading 11.2 from scratch I cannot easily change TV channels.
    After formatting and downloading 11.2, I followed the guide "Multi-media and Restricted Format Installation Guide" in the "new user howto"

    kaffeine hangs - freezes when i try to change channel.
    It hangs until i press a button, and then it comes with an error message:
    "Cannot find demultiplexer plugin for the given media data"

    Then if I try afgain - it works and the new channel comes up.

    As a workaround, I can push the stop button in order to stop the current TV channel.
    After this, I can change to a new TV channel without problem.

    I noted that in 11.1 kaffeine briefly displays "pause" when changing TV channels.

    It seems to me as a timing problem somewhere

    regards

    jens Elmo

    Installing ffmpeg seems to solve that matter.

    I am using ffmpeg 0.520358 loaded from packmans repository for OpenSuse 11.2
    I also tried downloading ffmpeg directly from ffmpeg.org
    Still same problem

    Same problem here with kaffeine4 on 11.1 kde 4.3.1 release 183. Kaffeine4 is still in beta, though.
    Let's hope it's fixed soon.
    Cheers

    Just loaded suse 11.2 with dvb option and avermedia a180 HD card. Kaffeine will not scan any channels. Strange because it worked very well in suse 11.0

    Hi
    Have you installed the dvb tools and ffmpeg? Can you scan from the
    command line eg?
    Code:
    scan /usr/share/dvb/atsc/us-NTSC-center-frequencies-8VSB

    I have been trying to copy the channels.dvb file from my working 11.0 to 11.2 and Kaffeine 1. No can do.I have been reading the new improved Kaffeine bug reports . Well apparently. They have screwed things up with a new file structure. Just yesterday I was saying Kaffeine is the best dam software I have ever seen, it would play any file I threw at it. Today nada!!!! too bad. I guess i will have to find something else that works.
    FFMPG thanks. I will give it a try

    You have the opportunity to install the KDE3 version of kaffeine alongside. It will pull in some libs but that won't hurt.

    When I do a manual scan in terminal it fails.The problem probably has nothing to do with Kaffeine !

    mick@linux-t6vx:~> scan /usr/share/dvb/atsc/us-NTSC-center-frequencies-8VSB
    scanning /usr/share/dvb/atsc/us-NTSC-center-frequencies-8VSB
    using '/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0' and '/dev/dvb/adapter0/demux0'
    >>> tune to: 57000000:8VSB
    WARNING: >>> tuning failed!!!

    Like everthing works great in 11.0 . So if it ain't broke don't fix it.I will play with 11.2 on my laptop and the modem challenge !!!!!

    Hi
    The warning is normal, just keep an eye on it to see if it's finding
    active channels. If it didn't start scanning then there would be an
    issue with the hardware.
