I have been using for a long time but in last couple of days it has stopped working with error as below.  Any clues?

I can't read that. Post the relevant part of the log.

Finally found the log file location.  Here is the error.  A full log is at https://pastebin.com/sWYci1wf

Since it looks like error is related to processing EIT info I have uploaded a transport stream dump for frequency I am using just in case it is needed.

Thanks for the file. A copy of the data is always necessary in these sort of cases.

 

What version are you using?

 

When I processed the file with v4.3 FP10 it worked OK.

Hi, as you were checking I also discovered that there had been a few more fixpacks released since FP5 which I have. 

 

I saw in the changelog for FP6 there was a change made to allow it to continue processing after encountering an error.  I downloaded FP10 and retried and it is now working ok. 

 

I guess I may have just struck some data it was unable to handle and it was exiting at that point - its been months that I have been running on the FP5 version without any problem. 

 

I checked the log with FP10 and the only mention of error I could see was this.

 

14:29:25:200 Collecting EIT data...........................................................................................................................................14:34:05:118

14:34:05:120 Stop request received
14:34:05:120 Stopping background worker thread

 

Many thanks for taking the time to look at it.  People pay good money for commercial software and don't get anywhere near as quick a response as that!

Increase the data collection timeout on the Advanced tab to say 600 from 300. That should get rid of the exit code 10.

 

Maybe I fixed something else in the Huffman decoding that got rid of the error as well but never mentioned it in the release notes. If there are no errors listed anywhere in the log from the time the collection starts until it finishes then everything worked.

 

EIT is definitely working OK on satellite although of course there are far fewer channels.
