Tversity Pause Issue
Posted 09 August 2009 - 05:45 PM
I'm using an HR21 running 0x339 software. Occasionally I stream movies that I have archived in xvid format from my PC to the HR21 in the bedroom using Tversity. Since there isn't native support for xvid on the receiver Tversity is transcoding the video prior to sending to the HR21 to mpeg2 I believe. I think everyone knows the limitations of this method but it works for casual movie watching with one exception that I will get to below. On an aside I have a video game console in my theatre that I use for more "serious" movie watching works pretty much flawlessly.
I know there is no trickplay available for media share on the HR series receivers but I was under the impression that pause worked. What's happening in my case is when I start a movie after having it paused for a few minutes the movie will play for another 10 seconds then it will fail. No error comes up but I'm returned to live TV with the media share menu still intact. In the status section of Tversity there is no error message either just in the transcoding section is says suspended. I was wondering if anyone else had this issue or had heard of it. I went to Tversity support boards and I did see one thread where two people had the same issue but it was never resolved.
Hopefully someone's heard of this. Thanks in advance for any help. Oh, one more thing, I don't think its a software issue on the HR21 as this has happened on both the NR as well as CE.

BTW. You are correct. Its transcoding on the fly to mpeg which happens to be the only format the STB can see.
