  • [HELP] Problem: Up to 34 second delay on non-FTA Channels + random 7-10 sec Screen Freezes.

    My VU+ Duo HD has been running fine after it’s setup about a week ago, but has now developed an annoying problem:
    For example, I might have watched FTA BBC 1 HD for 40 minutes or so, but when I go to epg and select say Animal Planet HD (or ‘any’ non-fta channel) there is a 34 second delay before the channel appears on screen. Up to 34 seconds of black screen & silence.
    However, once it eventually bursts into life I can switch between non-fta channels at will ...with no channel start delays. Also, when viewing a non-fta channel I am able to flick to a fta channel ‘briefly’, then back to any non-fta channel with no hesitation at all.
    But once again, if I spend as little as 10 to 15 mins watching any fta channel the same problem will occur when subsequently selecting a non-fta channel.
    Has anyone experienced something similar ...or hopefully has a solution please?

    This 'might' be a sods-law coincidental thing:
    In parallel with the above I’m also getting random (perhaps every 10 to 30 minutes) screen freezes that last between 7 to 10 seconds.
    There is no interruption to any other digital services that are 100% alive & well at the same time as the problems.
    I have tried restarting softcam (1.35a), restarting enigma, rebooting the box, mains powered off the box for 20 mins (not necessarily in that order I might add) ...but each time it continues to have the same faults.

    Both Swap and Auto Cache Flush are enabled.

    Any suggestions/solutions?

    VU+ Duo HD, Vix 3.0, Crossepg, fixed dish 28.2e, 5’10, overweight, 42" waist, love pizzas (too much), 750GB Internal HDD, Swap enabled, Auto Cache Flush enabled.

      Hi Dany2012,
      I'm not quite sure what you mean.

        Instant. No delay.
        in the first ; checking a cables
        I noticed from the Vu + duo Hd and Tv Hd
        Response to everything is ok
        but with vu+ duo Hd and tv normal
        Response to everything is not ok
        there is a 34 or 40 and 50 second delay before the channel appears on screen, and sometimes I hear the sound before the image appears on screen

            Solved! ...The problem is due to the config settings in the 'mg_cfg' file.
            For the VU+ Duo ensure that the lines within the file (ONLY those listed below) are changed.
            (((REMEMBER to save a copy of your existing cfg file to your PC / stick BEFORE you do this)))
            Find the following lines in your mg_cfg file and change to exactly as shown. Leave all other text unaltered.
            Changes listed here:
            Type EXACTLY as shown.

            M: { 01 }
            C: { 01 }
            A: { 01 }
            U: { 01 } 0x12c0
            T: { 00 }
            G: { 01 }
            N: { 07 } 5 30
            K: { 07 }
            Q: { 120 }
            P: { 00 }
            O: { 00 } root password
            S: { 00 } 80
            L: { 00 } 28007 /tmp/mgcamd.log
            E: { 15 }
            H: { 07 }
            R: { 04 }
            D: { 00 }
            B: { 06 }
            F: { 00 }
            Hope this helps.
