Using a Geforce 210, I would get lockups with the 340 driver but not the 304 driver.
Using a Geforce GT 710 I am getting lockups on the 340 driver and the 390 driver.
The error that is in the frontend log consistently when this happens is:
Code: Select all
2018-07-31T13:29:50.542412-05:00 mythfrontend: E Decoder mythplayer.cpp:3503 (DecoderGetFrame) Player(5): Decoder timed out waiting for free video buffers.
I do not get lockups when using the mythtv pvr plugin on Kodi when using VDPAU acceleration, so it appears to be somewhat mythtv specific. I have ongoing posts on both linhes forums and nvidia forums (I would post the links but I am not allowed to).
The main LinHES developer has not been able to reproduce the issues despite having the Geforce 210 in multiple machines. The responses on the nvidia forum indicated that they are unofficially not supporting vdpau anymore. Is this something that can be addressed in the mythtv code? It has been reported when using mythtv 0.28 as well as 29.1. Please let me know if there is any additional information I can provide in order to help troubleshoot this.
