MPlay loses audio and video jerky

Sat Jan 26, 2008 3:13 pm

Hey Gang,

Been a while since I posted anything here. I've got a problem I can't figure out.

I have 2 HD-1000s. One is a Rev A and one a Rev B. Both have had the power supply replaced with units purchased from Logic Supply.

The Rev A is working fine. It's the Rev B model that I'm having a problem with MPlay.

I'm playing DVD folders stored on my MacPro. All connections are wired ethernet.

The movie file starts playing fine but then after 10 seconds or so, I lose audio and the video starts getting jumpy like I'm losing frames. On the Rev B, I am using coaxial output to my Denon 2808CI receiver. I thought perhaps it's a problem with the Denon and my settings there and I messed with those but no luck. Then I realized that it can't be the audio settings since the video is mucked up as well. I cannot figure out what is causing this. I've rebooted the box multiple times, etc.

Again, I don't think it's my file serving system or the files themselves because everything works fine on the Rev A box. The Rev B box is just not usable right now.

Any ideas? :cry:

Thanks,

Jon

maybe you tried this, but if not try swapping the units so the rev a is connected to the ethernet a/v outputs where you have the b currently and vice versa. that would test if there was a network issue or problems with your chosen video and audio output modes or the problem lies in the roku itself.

A second point are the firmwares the same?

People reported to me that one version of mythroku was jumpy just like you report when I updated the mvp libraries and for me I lost audio after a skip but no jumpiness. So the machines can be finicky in some cases. As I couldn't figure it out I rolled back and noone has reported issues. It mught have been network in those cases in talking to the myth backend. This doesn't help you but ...

This sounds like the issues some people reported with 2.0.36 from my recollection. Is the RevB 2.0.36 and the RevA something else? If it's 2.0.36, you may want to "downgrade" to 2.0.35.

The rev B is running 2.0.35 and I think the Rev A is running 2.0.36. I thought I had it fixed by playing with the shares but it's back. I'll have to look into it. I may also have a network issue of some sort that has cropped up.

Hmmm...well maybe you should "upgrade" the problem RevB to 2.0.36 then... ???

But my point is that it HAD been working fine for a long time.

I so wish Roku had not abandoned this product. :mad:

Yeah, me too.

I upgraded one of my Linux servers with a gig-e nic card recently, and while everything else SMB and NFS worked flawlessly on my LAN to/from this machine, my Photobridge refused to access it at all. Wouldn't even see the machine on the LAN even though every other machine on the LAN saw it just fine. Can't explain at all why, troubleshot the flower out of it off and on for weeks and never got it to work. Ended up doing a clean install of a newer Linux on that machine and all is back to working (on the gig-e nic). Sigh. Nothing to do with this stuff is ever easy.
