WDLXTV-0.5.8.1 - crashes when playing Movies over LAN   

Postby Viper780 » Sun Oct 24, 2010 4:57 am

Hi

I've big troubles with my "old" WDTV HD (G1)

When i'm playing a Vid from the USB Stick everything is runnig fine.
But since a few weeks (i was trying round with Movie Sheets) when i'm playing any Video over the Lan (Belkin GBit USB 2.0 Adapter) the WDTV got Stuck right after he starts playing. I can watch the whole movie but the remote woundn't work and after the film everything stucks and i've to pull the Plug. It dosen't matter if its playing over NFS oder SMB share or the PC is Windows oder Linux.
The same File on an USB Stick is runnig great.

I've tryed to flash the WDTV new, i've flashed it with different Versions of the WD original Firmware and some different Mods. Nothing helped :(

Where could be the Problem? is there any chance to get a Log File or something like that from the WDTV?

I hope some one could help me - thanks

Code: Select all
config_tool -c NTP=OFF


if that doesn't help/solve then dunno what to say. G1 has some annoying particularities about it.

so finaly i sorted it out.

This happens when i activate the Media Libary.

i don't know why this happend and i flashed the WDTV many times but with the libary on i can't controll the WDTV after starting a film any more.

The new problem is that the NFS shares that worked for me for over 2 years won't work again. The WDTV sees the direcotrys but they are all empty

and the third Post from me in a row (i hope that doesn't offend anyone)

When i play the movies over USB or SMB/CIFS everything workes "fine" (with media on) but when i switch to NFS with media on (the same files and the same share on the same PC) the problem is Back again (file plays but my wdtv wouldnt do anything). switching Media off and NFS working as well (most of the time).

Is there any Bug in the NFS implementation? on my WDTV with media on and NFS worked for over 1 year.

How can i debug and fix it?

try deleting the .wd_tv directory, maybe something got corrupted.

rw (how can i change it?)

i mount it with "xmount 192.168.0.1:/Filme Filme nfs rsize=16384,udp" and the same SMB Share "xmount //192.168.0.1/Filme FilmeSMB cifs user=Viper780,pass=*******"

First off, udp is not (and never was) a valid option for NFS mounts! It's proto=udp (or proto=tcp)
Try mounting your NFS share ro, all recent versions of wdlxtv should do this by default if not specified otherwise (because of the BCOD which is the freeze you are experiencing).
Code: Select all
xmount 192.168.0.1:/Filme Filme nfs "ro,proto=udp,rsize=16384"
