Sage Media Server driver (beta) - Fonceur - 08-27-2009

I'll take a look for the rewind and forward, they might not be wired properly... For the MediaPosition, have you waited a bit for it to resynchronize?

Sage Media Server driver (beta) - royalj7 - 08-28-2009

I've given it around 30 seconds after skipping forward to catch up, I can try longer but it's a bit of a pain if needs that long to sync. For the fast forward, the Playfaster field seems to work correctly...the FastForward instentanously skips like the rewind.

I believe I have identified a bug. My show list is long enough that the XML is split into two chunks. The CQC driver is only showing the stuff that comes in the 2nd (last?) chunk.

less giant xml string, containing the shows that end up in the driver

I have also noticed high CPU usage associated with this driver (CQCServer.exe jumps to 50% until i unload and reload the driver)

But nonetheless, I am happy to have it back! I hope we can iron out these issues. Thanks for all your work.

Any luck reproducing the problems I am having with Rewind and MediaPosition?

I am swamped with other non-CQC projects, so didn't get to spend much time investigating, but nothing jumped to my eyes when I did, sorry.

What about my shows XML problem...?

Sage Media Server driver (beta) - personalt - 09-05-2009

Two Questions:

Mute Field
Anyone use the Mute field? I notice my existing commands for Mute dont seem to work. I was checking it out in the field browser and my commands are still toggling the field however the extender doesn't seem to care if Mute is set to true.. there is no change in volume as this field toggles

Anyone see the same thing?

Rewind(play backwards not skip backwards
Is there a transport command for rewind? The sage remote has a FF which is Transport.PlayFaster however there is no Transport.PlayBackwards. Transport.Rewind is Skip Back on the remote. Is there a button for this?

Fonceur Wrote:After poking around, indeed there was no provision for multiple lineups, so I'll need to fix that. But the main issue seemed to have been an hard coded limit of 150 channels, which I boosted to 1500, so have a try at 0.9.5... Most likely, only the last lineup will be visible.

This is exactly what the issue is... You only get one lineup not two. I get only the over the air hd home run locals. I really love what you have done with the guide so I can select a channel and see what is upcoming. So would love to see both lineups. Hopefully you can squeeze it in your next update..

Anyone having issues with this driver pegging the CPU at 100%? Not often but every few days when using this driver to watch TV CQC ends up going to 100% CPU usage.

I am using PRTG to monitor my CPU usage and email so I get alerted when it jumps up but I cant seem to tie it to a single command. There do not seem to be any errors in the log.

Sage Media Server driver (beta) - SamVimes2 - 09-17-2009

I see this also (but it seems to peg only one of two cores, so it shows as 50%).

Normally I have to remove and re-add the driver to fix it.
