I can test on 0.28/Fixes and master backends with an XTI 3340 (1x DVB-S,1x DVB-S2, 2x DVB-T).

I can also run more limited tests using XTI 3442 (2 x DVB-T.T2). I say limited because it is in use on my production system (master), although I can remove it for a few days as this system also has a TBS-6280 (2 x DVB-T/T2 PCI-e card) which it will fall-back to.

Just found a problem with my multirec patch,some mythtv services API calls are not working correctly. There will some more changes, will let you know when I have it sorted. It involves some default parameters in dtv_multiplex table, the VBOX works properly, just not services API.

Here is the updated patch which applies cleanly to master 245e078 bump ABI after constructor changes.
The changes fix the services API issue by giving some default values.

I have also stopped xmltvid being updated when the VBOX is rescanned in mythtv-setup, user is likely to have changed the xmltvid, so we should not overwrite it

The patch includes the temporary fix to iptvtuningdata.h (stops mythsingledownload)

Also included in the patch is a change to videosource,cpp which moves Signal and Channel timeouts to the main configuration screen, instead of Recording Options, the defaults have been increased to 7000 and 10000. I did try just changing the values in the vbox extra panel but this does not work (also affects 0.28/fixes) - there is something strange going on just selecting Recording Options causes the Capture Card to be created in the database with type V4L, defaults of 1000 and 3000 for the timeouts, the type is then immediately updated to VBOX, I suspect a reload at this point picks up the 1000 and 3000 values instead of 7000 and 10000.

The patch has been tested using two VBOXs details as follows:

Thanks Mike,

I've just committed your latest patch to master more or less as is for now, just cleaned the formatting up a little in a few places.

I'll come back to it when I have more time for Myth to fix the remaining issues.

Is it possible / likely to have this commit ( ... 846b7bfe4b) pushed down to fixes/0.28?

I don't have the VBOX but it looks like the workaround applied to mythtv/libs/libmythtv/recorders/iptvchannel.cpp initiated from ticket 12773 ( which is bundled together with this commit may resolve (work around) my segfault.

If it is not possible for this commit as a whole to apply to fixes/0.28 could the ticket 12773 changes be separated out and be applied individually?
