Cool. If you give them money, the little squares in the top right corner of your screen go away.

I had SwapDV working fine on my laptop...I was able to see my RTV, pull files down from it, watch them on another RTV. Then, I got my new PC which has a lot more hard drive space on it, so I installed the program there and set it up to use one of those drives for the storage.

Now, I can see and connect to my RTV, I can see shows, and I can even select "Import show to my....", but the files never appear on the Download tab. I get no errors, it just doesn't copy the files over.

Does anyone have any ideas what I might be doing wrong? Could my RTV have somehow cached the address of my laptop and now won't allow me to use it from another PC? Can't see how that can be, seeing as I can connect to the box......

Thanks in advance for any help anyone can offer.

When a show is highlighted I see "Replay Show". When a category is highlighted I do not see anything. Aren't I supposed to see the RTV name?

I was hoping to see the name,as a list entry, enclosed in two arrows that I coould select to scroll through the list of RTVs on the network, but I see nothing.

Any ideas on why this isn't working?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Some obvious questions
* have you started the server on both (Library Server->Start)
* open the log window (Library Server->Log) and check that its
sending the broadcast messages (leave the window and and stop and start the server again to see this)
* If you see "Address in use" then you already have a web server running on port 80 which you'll have to stop
* does the replay photo application on each machine see the replay box?

In the upper right corner of the "replay guide" menu on your replay box you should see left and right arrows indicating there are other replay guides to choose from.

Hope that helps

I started the server on both PCs. I sent the uPnp interval to 60. The log contains:

Waiting for socket connect
Sending broadcast message
...done broadcast message
Request from Mars/10.0.0.8
Waiting for socket connect
Processing HTTP request:
GET /Device_Descr.xml HTTP/1.1
Returning device description...
...done

I have nothing else on port 80 on either PC.

The Replay Photo application sees the real RTV and the SwapDV running on the same PC (it does not see the SwapDV running on the other PC).

I ran a trace on the network traffic using ethereal (there is a linux box on the network). The machine I started the server on requested Device_Descr.xml from the other instance of SwapDV and got it. There was absolutely no activity from the real RTV.

In the upper right corner of the "replay guide" menu on my replay box I see nothing, no arrows, not even the name of the replay TV. Aren't I at least supposed to see the RTV name?

Try This:

Name your SwapDV server "this ReplayTV". It confuses the hell out of the wife.

Wondering why nobody seems to want to reply to my message above.....

I don't think so, as I have run SwapDV from two different computers, and have change IP addresses on one of them. I've never had the kind of problem that you describe, although I've had few other problems. In a couple of cases, the problem was actually with the RTV4k; you might try re-booting your RTV4k and see if that cures the problem. Another possibility is a corrupted guide; try moving the guide to a different directory and start with a virgin guide and see if you get the same result. Also, if you are running a desktop firewall (or even a router with a firewall), try disabling the firewall and see what happens.

I am unable to run 2 SwapDV's and my 2 Replays at the same time. If I open the second SwapDV on my other PC it either boots the original Swap Server off Replay's Network and replaces it or boots it and neither are up.

However if I run the second PC first, it works and then the Swap Server which was first before takes the booting role over so it's not either PC.

Any suggestions?

Well, I downloaded the newest version and still have the problem where I can only import ONE program from my Replay 4160 into SwapDV, then SwapDV locks up until I reboot my Replay.

Suggestions? Thanks...

I think I may have found the problem with SwapDV not appearing in a ReplayTV's replay guide:

It appears that if you have multiple network interface cards in your PC, SwapDV does not specifically choose the "source" IP address for broadcasts. In my case, I have two NICs in my PC, one ethernet NIC connected to the network on which my ReplayTV is connected, and a phoneline NIC connected to the other PC's in my house. If I disable the phoneline NIC, I can see the SwapDV in my ReplayTV's replay guide. If I enable the phoneline NIC, I can't see the SwapDV. SwapDV appears to be using the default NIC (in this case the phoneline NIC) and broadcasting on that network, not the network that the ethernet NIC is connected to. Removing the phoneline NIC from the mix forces SwapDV to broadcast through the only available NIC.

SwapDV alread let's you specify the "source" IP address in the server configuration area. Simply changing the code to specify this address during the bind operation on the socket (assuming Winsock is being used) should fix this issue.

Do any of you that are experiencing this problem have multiple NIC's?

Randy.

Thanks for your reply.

I have 3 PC's running Windoze (2 Win98, 1 XP), a Linux box, and a ReplayTV on the network. The Linux box has two NIC's, one on the local LAN, the other goes to a cable modem. The other PC's have only one NIC. I have tried disconnecting the Linux box completely from the network that the RTV is on. Didn't help.

Some of the PC's recognize the existence of another SwapDV and the RTV, so the broadcast must be going out on the same network as the RTV. The RTV Photo App also sees SwapDV. It just seems like the RTV doesn't recognize any instance if SwapDV.

After SwapDV comes up it sends out a upnp message. What should happen next? I think devices that recognize this message should request the XML header from the device that just sent out the message. When two or more SwapDV's are running, this works between the two SwapDV's (sometimes), but the RTV never requests the XML.

Maybe I am doing something really stupid. When I go to the ReplayGuide on the RTV, I see nothing in the upper right hand corner. Shouldn't I see the name of the RTV on the RTV (with or without arrows)? Is there any setting on the RTV that have to change to tell it other RTV's may exist on the network. Can I force the RTV to request XML from somewhere?

Try this. Open up the Serverlog window for SwapDV so you can see the network traffic. The open up the configuration dialog and close it several times. What do you see?

What I typically see (this is one a system with 2 RTVs and one PC running SwapDV) is several broadcast messages, and then the RTVs will make an HTTP request, presumably for the guide info. The SwapDV server processes the request, and says "returning device description." When I have had SwapDV off, it is after the "returning device description" action that the SwapDV server shows up on the RTVs.

If you see the HTTP request from the RTV, does it reference the correct IP address? Does SwapDV return the device description in response to the HTTP request?

I am running a SwapDV on my network with 1 PC, 1 linux box and 1 RTV. I ran ethereal and snooped the traffic. SwapDV broadcasts its existence. I expect the RTV (on 10.0.0.6) to respond.

Something on 10.0.8.2 responds. I am snooping eth1, the NIC on the local LAN. Where/what/how can anything be on 10.0.8.2 on eth1? The mask is 255.255.255.0. The BCAST mask is 10.0.0.255. When I send the uPnp broadcast, how can anything not starting 10.0.0.n get the message, much less respond?

It seems 10.0.8.2 responds to the uPnp request and tries to query SwapDV on port 80 but this fails.

Something is fishy here. What is happening?

Any help is appreciated.

Two possible misconceptions there.

In the class a/b/c system used in the Old Days, 10. was a class A network, meaning that its mask was 255.0.0.0; 10.0.8.2 is part of the same network. In these days of classless routing, masks can generally be set separately from networks -- when you say the mask is 10.0.0.255, I *hope* you really mean it's 255.255.255.0. (if you're actually using a mask of 10.0.0.255, then you're saying anything with bits 28 and 26 set, and the lowest octet '6', is part of the network.)

Second, the UPNP message goes to a multicast address, completely separate from the local broadcast address. The address used, 239.255.255.250, is part of the Administratively Scoped Bloc (see rfc2365), intended to be routed only on networks that are controlled by a single organization; in a perfect world, routers would be configurable as to whether or not they should forward such packets. I'd hope the default is 'no' for the consumer-model broadband routers.

I'm assuming 10.0.0.8 is the machine running SwapDV.

The mask is 255.255.255.0, 10.0.0.3 is the linux box (which runs samba, hence the SMB message)

PC running SwapDV

Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:

Linux Box:

So I am confused, how/what/where/why is 10.0.8.2 trying to connect on port 80 (presumably to SwapDV). There is no such address on my local network.

Can the uPnp request be making it out through the gateway and 10.0.8.2 is out there somewhere responding? If so, how come I cannot ping 10.0.8.2? How can I block the uPnp request from leaving my local network?

More importantly, why doesn't the RTV at 10.0.0.6 respond to the uPnp message from 10.0.0.8?

Yes, that seems most possible. Lots of firewalls block ICMP packets (and thus ping) while still letting TCP through. How you block the UPNP from escaping, depends on your gateway -- if you've said what it is, I can't find it now.

Another possibility is that you actually *do* have a 10.0.8.2 on your local network, accidentally. Any chance you have a DHCP server running and you're hitting the DHCP bug in the Replay, and that's what's actually making that request?

Can you change the UUID SwapDV uses? I've seen my Replay get confused about whether ReplayServer is running or not, and start ignoring the broadcasts. Changing the UUID so it thinks it's a brand new machine on the network fixes that.

I do not have DHCP running anywhere on local network. If something on my network thought it was at 10.0.8.2 then I ought to be able to ping it since it is behind the firewall.

What is the DHCP bug in RTV? I configured my RTV (and everything else) manually. Could the RTV think it is at 10.0.8.2? I have seen it converse with replaytv.com and it thinks its at 10.0.0.6.

My gateway is the linux box running ipchains.

I have tried changing the UUID many times and just tried again. To no avail. I even rebooted the RTV (again).

When I rebooted thr RTV and traced traffic I saw a series of BOOTP requests from 0.0.0.0 (the RTV). Suddenly, I saw a uPnp NOTIFY on 10.0.1.131. The contents of this notify was LOCATION 10.0.9.32?????? The next message was another BOOTP from 0.0.0.0. Seems the uPnp message was generated before the RTV decided what it's IP was.

A few seconds passed and anpther uPnp message wass sent from 10.0.0.6 with location 10.0.0.6, but the SwapDV was trying to reach something at 10.0.1.131????

I bet people using DHCP are not having this problem!

True. There goes that idea.

The bug is (or was -- I think it may have been fixed in 4.1.1?) was that, even if manually configured, it would use a DHCP server if it later saw one on the net.

I'm pretty much out of ideas on the main problem.

In the 10.0.8.2 front -- what's in /proc/sys/net/ipv4/conf/all/mc_forwarding on your gateway? If it's 0, then I'm clueless on that front, too. If it's 1, then changing it to 0 ('echo 0 > /proc/sys/etc' as root) might help.

I finally got my RTV to see SwapDV.

I set up DHCP on my linux box. I know DHCP works because I reconfigured my PC's to use it.

When I tried to set my RTV up to use DHCP the RTV wouldn't configure automatically. A lease file was created but the RTV complained it could not het network informastion and kepot prompting for manual configuration. I erased all my manual network settings in the process.

After automatic configuration failed, I entered all the stuff I had before, exactly the way it was when I started, and it just started working. Go figure....

Looks like the network configuration logic in RTV needs some work.


Now, how do I create an MPEG that didn't originate from an RTV and view it on my RTV?

For all you guys making 'high capacity' machines to run SwapDV on...

Check out 3ware's site. They make an absolutely awesome IDE RAID controller card. Now you don't have to put up with RAID 0, 1 or 1+0...you can have true RAID 5 and not have to worry about a drive failure ruining your carefully saved season of <insert show here>.

I have one, and it's amazing. 5 80GB drives later, it's capacity is 320GB, for around $1000. (Yes, that includes the cost of the hard drives. And I bought their top-of-the-line controller.)

A similar SCSI solution can cost up to 10 times more.

And no, I don't work for 3ware, or a drive manufacturer. I'm just a techno-geek.

Promise, Adaptec and SIIG also make ATA (IDE) RAID 5 Controllers. You can find the Promise RAID 5 controllers for around $250 - $275 (if you look around). They work GREAT!:)

You may want to check out the 3ware card, it has much better IO and works with 2 more drives. I have 8 160 gig disks on one RAID aray under Linux. My only problme now is that I can't run this cool code.

It seems as if there are mingled expectations of SwapDV in this thread. Perhaps we should have separate threads for those who use the ReplayTV box as the final rendering (playing) engine and those that don't. The expectations of interoperability are quite different but they sound similar.

ReplayTV told me that file size is 1,2, or 3gB per hour depending on requested quality. If I have a 3 hour high quality file (9gB) on Windows, I have a "random access" (skip and jump around) problem. Not to mention that WIn 9x Explorer doesn't like to move >2gB files around (DOS command works). ATI's MMC, WinDVD, and HollywoodPlus all share the this problem in one form or another which they blame on the WDM interface limitations. Linux (at least RedHat 6) will not tollerate files over 1gB. DVDs split up the MPEG data into multiple files, each less than 1gB to circumvent file size limitations. What does SwapDV / ReplayTV do?
