Scheduled recording fail

Post by jeronimo017 » Sun Jan 28, 2018 11:43 pm

It rarely works, normally the programmed time passes and nothing is recorded, and the programming is kept on the list.

Could you improve it on upcoming firmware? Thank you

I agree!! It is terrible and frustating.

Un addition to that, would you mind to allow us records bigger than 3,99Gb??

Thank you.

Agree with both but the 3.99 gb thing is a fat 32 thing isn't it?

Yes, it is FAT32 limit, I am using a NTFS pendrive though.

So I think that we would need some kind of permission.

So... 3.99GB = 2h recording channel FTA HD?

As far as I know V8 is not able to power on the receiver or to change channel by itself when a record is sheduled.
You need to have the receiver turned on and the desired channel must be already tuned.

I made a test with the V8 NOVA original firmware and here is the results (always with the STB powered on)

Current Channel = A
1) programmed recoding in channel A --> OK!
2) programmed channel changing to B --> OK but change will return to channel A after the duration programmed (1 minute)
3) programmed recording in channel B --> Fail! changed the channel but the recording didn't start. After the duration programmed, it returns to channel A
4) programmed channel changing to B (1 minute), and then, programmed recording starting after that minute --> OK! after recording, it returns to A

Programming channel changing before the recording is a mess...
It would be nice to do it in only one step.

The return to original channel behavoiur is useless for me.

Chector, please, how big is the 1m recording of HD channel recording on the new V8?
And what is the termination of the file, mp4?

Thanks to test!

Hi Blank.
The file extension is .ts (transport stream)
The file size depends on the bitrate. In my case, the channel has 10.4 Mb/s, so 1 minute = 82,6 MB. Some other channels habe 5 Mb/s, 7 Mb/s...

For your information, if your recording comes from an encrypted channel but you have softcam keys or cccam accounts to decrypt it, the result in your HDD will be decrypted, so you will be able to watch it in your PC or wherever. This feature is very useful for me.

This function is also useful myth for me.
I'm waiting for my new V8 to arrive here in Brazil, yes.
So in regards to your response that was extremely useful to me, recording HD channels on the new V8 is in .ts and runs on the classic media player or vlc on the PC.
So I guess one hour of recording HD channel with 10mbps should give a 4956Mb right?

Thanks a lot!

With what I have seen on another decoder, when recording is scheduled, there is a .TEN extension file that is saved on flash disc. In this file there is a detail that decoder reads when boot timer starts device. I think it has details of channel and time or something. Therein, switch happens when time comes without prompting user. GT Media team, take note
Will get more details.

Dear Lungo, here Team GT Media already observes the suggestions and complaints of the users and leads to the developers to be studied the solution in the next update.

I believe it is not necessary to send emails, I trust the Team always observe and take the work seriously.

That's why I think Freesat has been my favorite brand since I've been here in the forum.

Hi Chector!

Does this .ts record maintain the same video resolution as the source?
Example:
1-Channel SD 720x480i> Record.ts 720x480i Mpeg2.ts
2-Channel HD 1920x1080i> Record.ts 1920x1080i

That is, does the recording on the New V8 maintain the same video resolution while preserving the original quality, or does it lower the resolution for HD to 720x480i as other older receivers did?

Hi Blank.
The recorded files keep THE SAME quaility as received.
Also, it mantains all the audio tracks and subtitles if it has it.
In fact, the recording means to dump the stream directly to the HDD (without scrambling if you have keys for it).

Noted the following.
If you have a timer (wake up) before timer (record timer) that combine to have at least two minutes of wake up time before recording, it works 100%

For example, if target is 12;00 hrs set it as follows ;-
Timer 1 wake up timer - Any channel - 11:58-12:00
Timer 2 Record timer - Target channel - 12:00 to whatever time.

That way you manipulate the decoder to stay on at least 2 minutes and it shall record consistently.
If device was off, then it shall start, record and go off after record completion.
If device was on, it will switch channel, record and get back to initial channel on watch mode.

Cheers
