1.3.11+dxr3plugin0.23pre1 very slow performance

  • I installed 1.3.11 because 1.2.6 has very slooow channel change,with dxr3 plugin 0.23pre1 (0.22 didn't turn at all) and dvb driver 1.1.1 but it it horrible, vdr take 99% CPU (with 1.2.6 3-5%) and picture was like 1fps. radio channel runs almost fine CPU 30%. Channels do change fast.


    Reason maybe em800 driver 0.14 ?
    cvs drivers doesn't install and I get same error like here:

    but I don't speak german at all and with babelfish i translated it in english and remove old em8300.h and copied new from cvs version -> same error...

  • You have to uncomment the 2 usleeps in file "dxr3outputthread".
    Remove"// " before the "usleep" entries.
    You also should use the CVS driver. There is a good step by step installation description for the ct version here in the board, but in German :-(, But there you will find the compiled modules for kernel 2.4.24-ctvdr-2
