BM2LTS - Vdr hde orange light no channel ?

  • Hi,


    I just noticed that after you start the avg2 the green light on the vdr hde goes from green to orange,


    I thought this was because the channel was set to tdt and a possible conflict with Kodi so i changed to a satellite channel.


    Seemed ok but then made a restart and this time no green light but orange.


    My question is , is there a conflict between Kodi and the vdr ?


    I only noticed this last night as i was cleaning the avg2. Is it dangerous to have the vdr hde always with orange light ?


    I hardly ever use the vdr hde because use Kodi . The vdr hde is good for installing and inicial programming of the avg2 , channel scan , hard drives etc. Then always Kodi.


    Many thanks.

  • HDE orange light means that the linux System on the HDE is not running ok.


    During the start phase the light on the HDE will be orange, when the HDE linux is running it should go back to green.


    You can only have picture from HDE when green light is on.

    The heat sink on the hde was loose. I cleaned and put some cpu paste and now working ok with green light.


    Thanks for helping .

  • Good !


    Bad heat management for the HDE can also be reason for dropouts in the picture.


    Therefore I meanwhile use in every Box (no more HDDs...) an additional 80mm Fan to blow on the HDE heat sink.


    Merry Christmas and a happy New Year also to you.


    Best regards
