Continued debugging has produced another dozen fixes for the HVR-950q. Most of these are low-probability failure conditions (race conditions, etc). However take a bunch of 1/1000 chance items together and you’re likely to hit one of them once in a while…
A couple of noteworthy changes:
- Firmware load time has been sped up to 2.9 seconds (down from 8-10 seconds). This should eliminate the need for MythTV users to specify the “no_poweoff” xc5000 modprobe since it will now load fast enough to avoid a mythfrontend timeout.
- Fix a case where the xc5000 tuner enters a failure state and all subsequent tuning requests fail until the device is reset.
- Minor speedup in switching from analog to digital mode and vice-versa.
The git tree is the same as the previous post – I’ve just added more patches to the end of the series:
Comments/feedback welcome, as always.
