I was unfortunately too late to catch the relevant log files.
That's the key I'm afraid; without those I can't do anything.

Thought I was on the last release... but then again I've not been looking at this thread for a few months now. I'll update as I do the cache card thingy. Won't be long before it's here

This is why I have reported a similar problem so Stuart knew it was not isolated to one user. I am 100% positive I am on the very latest version as I reported the initial problem and have been running the latest fix 141 for several months.

It has not happened again since, if it does and I watch the recording in time I will post the logs.

Just had a black bar problem again. It was Countdown C4 15:15->16:00. The timebar 0:00->1:00 but the last 14-15mins or so are black instead of green. As TiVo was recording a program before hand there is no 2 min start padding but there should be 15 mins end padding (i.e. 45 mins + 15mins padding = 1 hour). Everything has been working perfectly (i.e. no black bars) for months. The only recent change (approx 3 weeks ago) is dailymail is now installed and run via cron at 08:30hrs.

Are there any clues in the log files on what is causing this problem?

I have noticed [i]Nov 8 16:00:34 (none) Recorder[146]: Two small clips in a row![i] has been reported. I think small clips caused the last black bar problem is this a different case that need trapping?

TIA

Nothing unusual in Endpad's log. The previous bug occurred when the requested end padding overlappped the start of the next programme, which is not the case here.

The Tivo got a "Stop recording" event at 16.01:

Quote:
Nov 8 16:01:28 (none) Recorder[146]: Got EVT_VIDEO_SESSION 9
Nov 8 16:01:28 (none) VideoGuts[150]: StopRecording 326
Nov 8 16:01:28 (none) InputState[150]: StartCaching 0
Then 15 minutes later it timed out to Live TV:

Quote:
Nov 8 16:16:40 (none) ContextMgr[150]: ##### Context::OnHeartbeat(): context 7 timing out to Live TV! (idle time 15:00) #####
Since it times out after 15 mins unattended, the clock for which runs from the last user interaction on a menu screen, I'd have to conclude that someone stopped the recording from Now Playing at 16.01.

You might want to check the other log file which records keypresses?

Thanks Stuart you are correct I think perhaps this is what I did on my previous recent black bar problem. I probably finished watching at 16:00 and wanted to delete the recording but as it was still recording it does not allow you so I cancelled the recording but forgot to delete. TIA.

30 minute blind zone Q

I understand that EndPad determines the next time it is required to wake up based on recording times and also wakes up every 30 mins to check for changes. This seems to mean that if you add any program that starts or ends within the next 30 mins then EndPad may miss padding it. This is a performance nod.

I guess we use our Tivo a little differently - often panicing when two programs are about to start and creating an instant recording of one - or recording one already in progress in the buffer. The effect is that EndPad doesn't adjust the pad times and we occasionally lose the endings .

I just wondered if there was any other approach that might trap these types of additions eg an event driven rather than poll type operation. It would really be nice to get padding added on these instant recordings somehow. Is there a lot of work every 30 mins and would it be impractical for it to be more frequent , perhaps set in the command line parameters ?

Kevin

(Having recently just convinced someone that I will record the end of a thriller they were watching whilst we watched the footy live only to find the end was cut off. Yeah I know I should have added a manual padding and I now have the bruises / bow legs to prove it.)

If you're doing it "live" why not just add the padding while you're at it?

You can mod the code to make the wake ups more frequent than 30 minutes if you want. The key line is:

Code:
# Max 30 mins between wake ups to catch new recordings
      if {[expr $nexttime - [clock seconds]] > 1800} {
        set nexttime [expr [clock seconds] + 1800]
      }
Change the 1800 (30 mins in seconds) to whatever you like.

Oh I did mention that I >should< have done this in my post but it sort of seems you shouldn't have to if you have true "automatic soft padding" running - plus that's an extra step and one the other members of the family would find awkward and will forget.

Thanks for the script edit pointers - I might try it at 5 min intervals and see how it works out. Is it a real cpu hog ?

Don't know. Shouldn't be. Try it!

I put it in at 30 mins, as the number of shows that should miss will be very small - shows which are shorter the 30 mins, whose recording was set less than 30 mins ago and which a wake up doesn't happen to fall in. Ireckoned you'd be unlucky if one a year got missed.

I've had a crash which wiped my /var folder. So I've reinstalled TW, and also endpad 1.4.1, but when I go to the tracker module, I've get "tracking directory not found".

Have I lost all my data? If so, is there a way of backing it up every so often (even manually)?
(or is it just copy /var/hack/tracker)

Otherwise, it's a fabulous tool, especially the tracking bit.

TIA
Brad

Tracker isn't part of Endpad any more, it's a stand-alone TW module.

If /var got wiped, then yes you lost your database. You can indeed just make a copy (tar-ing it up first might make it quicker).

bugger.

(I'd added the tracker module, just didn't mention it. )

is tar on the tivo, or do I need to find the bin? (no tivo to hand to check!)

You need to find the binary. There is a built in command, cpio, but its syntax is a bit of buggar.

I've only read the first 9 pages, so can I ask if the following question has been answered:-

Can Endpad be installed, and configured, using a PC in the manner of Hinsdale?

I don't have a serial cable (did one come with? If so, it must still be in the box(es) )

Yes, using the types of boot discs you would use to install TivoWeb you can mount the drives and the partition and use pico/nano to edit the config file.

I've done it in the past when I've accidentally screwed up my tivo with unthoughtful editing.

Interesting that is, in the US, series 1 tivos did come with a serial lead, in the UK they did not.

But as a buyer and seller of tivo's in the early days the cable sets that came with a new tivo has a small incision in them as if either a cable has been removed (serial??) or a cable inserted (UK Telephone cable)..

To answer your question they did not come with the UK tivo..

Can be easily made, there is a diagram on this forum have a search, or ebay.

Yes, there are instructions here which I hope are still right. It may need some tweaks if your Tivo has already been upgraded or scripted though.

I've still got the MFS Tools boot floppy that I used for my Hinsdale upgrade to 120Gb.

Would that be OK to use?
(I vaguely remember that boots to a Bash prompt)

I can then follow the command from Page One of this thread, presumably?

Er, not sure. I can't remember what the MFS tools disc did and didn't let you do.

The boot CD which has the turbonet drivers on works.

Thanks, guys.

The old PC that I'll be using doesn't see its CD Drive until after booting (despite being told to do so in the BIOS!), but I've managed to boot it to a Bash prompt using the MFS Tools boot floppy , so I'll read and digest Hinsdale (again) and Steve Jenkins Network Hack How-To Guide, both of which I have in printed form, before diving in tomorrow.

The PineDragon EndPad Page looks very useful, too.

Thank you! Just stripped Tivo down again after my padding seemed to be missing on most shows. Turned out I had -sugeq set and Tivo was stripping padding from lots of recordings because of the suggestions. Often, suggestions which it never bothered recording after all! Anyway, one HD removal and joe session later, all seems well. This is THE killer hack for Tivo, IHMO. Nothing else worth taking it apart for. Of course, I installed bufferhack while I was at it!

Can I just check on the latest state of play of Manual padding vs Endpad? If I set 30 min padding on a sports program, will Endpad strip it now (1.4.1 installed)? I would ideally want 5 mins on most things, but I tend to set BBC rugby to +1/2 hour and Formula 1 to +1 hr (in case of red flags and restarts), so would ideally prefer Endpad to leave any manual padding alone, as I have removed it from all my season passes. Either way though, it is still a million times better than Tivo without Endpad! I know the answer to this is in the thread, but I worked through them all once, and have kind of lost track of the whole plot!

Once again, congratulations on the succes of this hack, and THANK YOU!!!

I, too, am using the PC method to install Endpad.

I've made all the changes on my partition 4, but can't mount partition 7

Can someone tell what I need to do?

Now you're just trying to confuse me!

I understood it was 4 or 7 which are the same, and 9 which is something different entirely.

You are right 4 and 7 are basically the same and 9 is different. If you are following the instructions on pinedragon.com then they only apply for a vanilla unupgraded Tivo. If you have done a disk upgrade then one of the 4 or 7 partitions won't mount. This is OK - just work on the one that does mount and ignore the other.

Also related to this, the instructions overwrite rc.sysinit.author. If you have created an rc.sysinit.author file for any other reason then you will need to make suitable modifications.
