What HW and FW version are you on currently. I have a theory. Also did you power-cycle after the HW update?

Actually no.

I opened a support ticket, and was told to manually try to update the firmware twice in a row without rebooting. This didn't work with either of my cards. I informed Ceton, and they now want to replace both of my cards to to verify that the hardware isn't the problem.

Eric,
I've been using AMD cpus for all of my builds so far. My present system is way over powered for just htpc and casual browsing. I want to try out intel for my next build. Just purchased an IB i3-3225S 55w dual core cpu (w/2 cores hyperthreaded). Now just trying to decide on the form factor for the mobo.. itx or mini atx.. I may try using the IGP on the cpu first to see how it does. If I need more oomph.. I can always throw my HD6870 or HD6950 cards on it..or just buy a mid range PCI-E 3.0 video card. The initial goal on this buld is low power / low heat and HTPC use only. Those H77 based itx boards keep catching my eye.. Nice and simple.. no OC functions to worry about.. I really like the tiny form factor of ITX but it does limit my options.. still up in the air on ITX vs mini ATX.

I may open a ticket with Ceton and see if they would be willing help me with the build options so I can optimize it specifically for the ceton infinitv. Maybe some of you knowledgable folks would be willing to help me out on choosing hardware for this.. I chose the i3 3225S specifically because of the HD4000 IGP. (all the other IB i3's use HD2500) I wanted to try using an i5-3475S (4 real cores) but I can't find any available for sale. Plus that cpu has a base clock of 2.9GHz and turbos up to around 3.6GHz vs the i3's base clock of 3.3GHz and no turbo feature.

I have turned on the AMD turbo core feature on my current pc and its dynamically adjusting the cpu multipliers to bump the speed up on 3 of the cores.. I have noticed some sluggish behavior on WMC7 and quite a bit more pixelization across channels.. but I don't know for sure if the issue is being caused by the turbo option or if its something in the cable signal creeping in intermittently.. its tricky to pin down. One benefit was that the cpu temps dropped by 4-6 degrees C.. very impressive.

I've pretty much given up on any fix for the pixelization / macroblocking.. I've adopted a more reasonable expectation of just getting the thing to function reliably. I will NEVER use this in a high end home theater due to the macroblocking issues as it defeats the purpose of spending thousands of dollars on high end monitors.. ISF calibration..video processor / scalers etc.. just to see the "pristine" macro blocks . Cable quality is crappy enough all on its own. I doubt that even 1% of the population even knows about ISF calibration or considers it a worthwhile investment.. (if you only spent $500 on a cheap tv, or your using a crappy 6-bit dithered lcd display then its actually NOT worthwhile..) True 8-bit or 10-bit monitors cost alot.. Plus in regard to 10 bit monitors, there are very few applications requiring the expanded color gamut unless your into photography / movie production or something. I'm not sure if any games support deep color yet.. (I don't game much cause I stink at it.. end up with high blood pressure and carpal tunnel after 10 minutes of getting my but kicked)

As this point, I just want the Ceton / HTPC to function like a 24/7 appliance (just like I did with the dish stuff) I want it to just work.. (where in the heck is that Ceton Q?) This science project stopped being fun several months ago.. So if you guys want to PM me some hardware recommendations that will work with the i3 IB that would be very cool.. (I would like to keep the suggestions private so as not to appear too biased towards one vendor product or another in a public forum)

Current Equipment: i3-3225S CPU, Ceton InfiniTV4 - USB model
Goals: Low power, low heat, low noise, low cost, reliable 24/7 operation

Thank You!
NKOST

I feel your pain. Even without all the top end calibration etc. it's frustrating on the other end too when you're just trying to build an "entry-level" machine (price constrained) and you're trying to put as much research into great sweet spot components only to have intermittent pixelation that can't be quelched in the end.

It was all fun in the beginning while there were options available for troubleshooting but I'm now sitting at a dead end waiting for Ceton. I have no clue if I'm on the ignore list or if they're working on it.

Do you ever get pixelation on copy freely channels? I never do, only on copy once shows. I'm convinced the problem is in the iTV4.

Ceton has acceptable tech support until you reach their wit's end. Upon which, you're thrown off a cliff. I've tried providing links to a VERY similarly described problem the TiVo had with pixelation on copy once shows that TiVo was able to fix. I'd just like to know if they read it, it could provide valuable insight, or not I dunno.

My HTPC is 95% there, just the darn intermittent pixelation. So frustrating.

Edit: I forgot to add the saddest part. The pixelation can be fixed by getting a Time Warner rented box...

NCoastTweaker when you mention "macroblocking" are you referring to a line that goes across the screen or does the image break up into blocks (not compression) surrounding motion in the scene? The problem of intermittent pixelation that I'm referring to looks like this (taken from my PC). http://i.imgur.com/F7l6F.jpg It looks very similar to a low signal strength problem but my signal strength is fine and it doesn't show up on a Scientific Atlanta box. And again, it's only on copy once shows. I probably should be calling it macroblocking, but I didn't want to get it confused with the line problem that luckily I've never experienced.

A problem the TiVo had with all the same symptoms (pixelation on copy once shows and/or SDV is involved) have been described by SCSIRAID on the tivocommunity forums here...

http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?s=209fa34e1b03ef4cab357fd57d44c075&p=7702489#post7702489

Since all OCUR devices are pretty much built to the same spec I thought this could provide some insight, but I haven't gotten anywhere. Tivo was able to fix it though.

I was thinking about getting Time Warner to bring out an MPEG analyzer to my house like SCSIRAID was able to do, but so far I haven't worked up the muster to deal with Time Warner on that level. Plus, in the end I don't know if it would get me anywhere.

Cold boot solved the HW firmware issue. Eric, perhaps make a suggestion that after a HW update a cold start is required as opposed to a normal reboot message when using the utility.

Although I understand latent power/capacitors/etc. it seems to me (and I understand the pci bus will always be powered up) that a reset would send the requisite message forcing a reset on expansion cards.

HW - 6297, FW - 1.1.7.2

I power-cycled the Ceton, then rebooted my PC.
post #3547 of 4757
So now my Ceton is losing the network bridge randomly.

What is the first thing they tell me to do? Update to the beta firmware and HW. I do and I get the same exact issues that I had over the weekend with blocking. So now I'm downgrading to 1.0.9.5 and 4884.

I think upgrading to the beta somehow screwed my card up.

I didn't have any blocking issues until I updated the HW and FM..

A cold boot is required. Last I checked, the message indicated that.

I'd look at something relating to your network (firewall, AV, etc) - once the bridge is created, the InfiniTV doesn't do anything with it - that's a function of windows.
post #3549 of 4757
Nothing has changed other than the FW and HW updates.

I have windows firewall and MSE as AV and had it installed for months and months.

I could never get the Ceton card to even do a network share 6 months ago and that ticket went unresolved.

I'm starting to wonder if I just got a card that was limping along until I did the FW and HW update then it started going down.

What could it mean if channels in the 400Mhz range suddenly receive very poor SNR around 28-29dB while other channels in the 600 and 700Mhz range remain acceptable at 34dB? Channels were fine a few days ago.

Indicator of bad card or more likely cable connection somewhere? I'm starting to believe whatever is causing these out of the blue low SNR values is linked to my overall pixelation problem.

I already have TW scheduled for next Monday as I'm betting it's their problem. I hope their equipement indicates similar readings.

Could be ingress. This happens when a broadcast frequency for over-the-air gets into your cable signal. Check this table, and see if the problem frequency lines up with one of your local broadcast channels:
http://www.csgnetwork.com/tvfreqtable.html

Usual causes are a loose connector, or someone being over-zealous with an edger/shovel/weed whacker nicking your cable line.

Hi guys, NEW Ceton owner.........having a little problem here. I have called Comcast and "paired" my cablecard. I can see the guide with ALL information. When I select a show, screen goes black for a few seconds, then TV comes alive with video. It either lasts for only a few seconds or stutters really bad. Then I get a "video error" message saying that


the files needed to display video are not installed or are not working correctly. Restart WMC or restart the computer.

Brand new build, using i5 3570k chip w/ HD4000 graphics. 8gigs of ram. downloaded the latest Ceton drivers,etc......

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Toys

post #3556 of 4757
Seen this happen a few times... for most of the reports on the web it seems to be audio drivers rather than video... make sure your audio device is correct (i.e speakers or hdmi, a few have had to reload hdmi audio drivers). Where I normally see it is when people use the "N" version from technet then try to mix in the missing features and it gets screwed up. Some have also stated that unchecking media center as an installed feature, reboot, checking it back on and another reboot also sometimes works.

Sometimes it just needs a restart...
post #3557 of 4757
I do have a Ceton Support ticket started regarding this,,,but Im curious if anyone else has this issue.

I have my main HTPC with the Ceton infinitv pci installed. I have an xbox extender in another room. When I watch live tv in my theater room on my htpc going through my Pioneer VSX-1120 into my Epson 8350 PJ, the video is very choppy, almost stuttering like. The audio is perfect.

If I watch the same channels on the xbox extender, the video and audio are perfect! I even recorded a program off the xbox, and played it off my htpc and it was still stuttering.

Has anyone else had this issue??

Oh, and Im one of the lucky ones who has DRM, playready issues getting copying prohibited messages on a bunch of stations...hopefully Ceton can help me with that one....

Thanks!
post #3558 of 4757
how is it directly to the projector or other monitor? Also since it isn't a problem on the extender it makes me think that it is probably the 29/59 bug.
post #3559 of 4757
its all connected via HDMI cable. The HDMI out of the HTPC into the AVR,,,then HDMI out into the PJ. Im able to watch ripped DVDs just fine through WMC. I can also watch youtube videos normal via IE. What is the 29/59 bug?
post #3560 of 4757
I just looked up the 29/59 bug....found a set up for on board video..changed the refresh rates and voila! Picture pefect!!


Now if I can just fix the DRM/Playready fiasco!
post #3561 of 4757
Glad to hear you got your 29/59 bug remedied. I figured that providing the term "29/59 bug" should be enough for you to figure out if that is what you were experiencing and/or try some fixes for the problem. Though I love the cablecard/media center experience, and my own setup rarely has problems (though I'm going to post one I recently came across after I make this post), I do believe that there are enough potential problems out there that people need to be able to do some troubleshooting of their own and not rely entirely on support from the cable company and/or the tuner provider but often it is just a matter of learning the terms to know what to search for.

I forgot a "when" and/or "connected" in the question about "how is it (when) directly (connected) to the projector or other monitor?" I was trying to determine how the picture was if the AVR was taken out of the loop, this also may be affecting your copy protection problem but there are stations that the cable company can set up as copy never as well as shows that may put copy never into the stream that should be overridden by the CCI flag your cable company sets. TBS and others have been getting really bad the past year on systems where they are in clear qam and the cable company does not provide CCI info for clear qam stations forcing a cable card tuner to "enforce" the embedded copy restriction. If your problem is just passing the DCA, there are workarounds that have been successful. On one system I installed through an AVR, I had to directly attach it to the monitor to pass the DCA, once passed I might occasionally get an hdcp error when going through the AVR but generally everything worked as expected once the DCA was passed.

Cox h264/Mpeg 4 problem:

Many have been made aware from other threads that the cox "plus pack" channels (particularly in phoenix) that are in h264 are displaying a blank screen or hdcp (require protected path) like error when used with the integrated intel sandy/ivy bridge graphics and the fix is to use another video card (In my case an old 3870). I recently have been having other problems with these channels that I thought I should report and ask about...I should probably try newer ati video drivers but I'm a little reluctant at this time. These channels are all above 800Mhz so it is possible that there is a signal issue but they are reporting at +6 / 38 s/n so I don't think its a problem.

My new problem is that if I watch one of these stations for longer than an hour at some point the video will freeze (jumping between the same 2 frames indefinitely) and the only way to recover is a reboot. During this time, the audio stream and captions continue. Trying to change channel, skip forward, skip back, close, or switch out of media center completely locks the computer, as the audio and captions also stop (once, prior to completely locking up, I was successfully able to switch out with alt-tab and run browsers etc. but trying to kill wmc then locked the computer). Trying to remote into the computer fails but accessing the shared folders from any other device still works, and any scheduled recordings still take place, provided it isn't in the completely "locked" state and is still playing the audio and caption stream. I believe what is happening is that there is a tiny glitch in the stream that the display driver/codec isn't able to recover from but why must I wait over an hour to encounter one. If I record a show for two hours, it appears that I may get the same lockups of switching between 2 frames but a skip forward/back does not lock the computer and it continues to play properly only during live tv does it lock the computer. I don't watch these channels live enough for it to be a major concern. Its only been in the last month or so that I've noticed this, as I don't recall it happening when I was trying extensive tests between both the ati and intel displays (since, the intel graphics have been turned off). I may try an nvidia card to see if it fixes the problem but I would "hate" to go back to them after I had to "trash" 3 laptops that suffered from their problem (I was able to reflow 2 of them a couple of times but by the time hp/dell had included my laptops in the affected list, they either said my repair wasn't "authorized" and violated the warranty or the offered replacement was 1/2 as powerful as the machines I had).

I was just wondering if anyone else had seen this type of behavior (switching between 2 frames) and what fixes they used and/or whats the "best" version of ati drivers for an old 3870 (currently I believe I'm using the ones from windows update, from 4/19/11 as I've always trusted those drivers to be the best with media center) or should I just replace the card. I have some time today to "test" drivers from ati and will report back.


{edit}
I've updated the video drivers to the latest from amd and now the problem no longer requires me to wait an hour but I noticed a couple of other interesting problems. It now allows me to exit media center, change channels, etc. but once the h264 stream goes bad, it no longer lets me watch any h264 programming or previously recorded h264 content in media center until I reboot (I could probably kill a process but the most obvious ones refused to be killed and it also won't allow me to shut down cleanly). If I just kill media center, the buffer continues recording. I did notice when doing this that the time bar would show the proper preview image for that time frame just not any image for the video.


{edit 2}
I noticed my extender (xbox) still has no problem accessing either live or recorded h264 content even if the htpc can't display h264 content. I have since tried to remove the extra catalyst and accelerated stuff that my recent install of the drivers added and messed it up even more. Even though the display is on the ati card, it now is behaving like the intel and states Display Driver Error The video playback device does not support playback of protected content and/or a blank screen just like the intel drivers did. When I ran BD/3D advisor it stated that the intel was now the graphics card rather than the ati. I'll probably remove all drivers and start over. Then as a last case, restore from a backup I made before I started.

This sounds like a video card/driver issue based on everything you said, especially because it works fine on the extender. Do you have another card you can swap in?
post #3564 of 4757
That's what I thought. It had worked fine for months but the last couple of months has had problems after about an hour of use... the newer ati drivers get the error within 5 minutes however the computer still works normally just can't watch any h264 stuff, reverting those back to the latest from windows upgrade made it behave like the intel driver then removing the intel driver made it go back to needing to wait an hour for the error to occur. I'm going to go back to the original windows driver and see if it makes a difference, if not I'll get another card.

Well the new card had the saame problem. However Ceton support directed me to beta drivers which worked.
post #3566 of 4757
I have an onboard video card. According to Ceton....my playready and drm are set up properly. However, I still get copying prohibited errors on certain cable channels. my local ones work fine.

My sons xbox can view all channels just fine! Recorded content can be viewed just fine on the xbox extender, however if I try to watch it on my htpc, I get copying prohibited errors....soooooooooooooooooo frustrating! But Im confident in Ceton to get me through this.
post #3567 of 4757
Have you ever loaded any codec packs, or anything that could have introduced new codecs (e.g. latest version of uTorrent)? The copying prohibited errors I've seen on CCI-protected channels have all been because of 3rd party codecs, and uninstalling those fixed the problem on the PC.
post #3568 of 4757
I wasn't sure who the last few entries were asking and who I think they were geared towards may had been continuing commenting on my problem mentioning a similar problem he was having.

For my problem its only protected mpeg4 (h.264) channels that now lock the system after about an hour using the old ati drivers (until about 2 months ago this was working flawlessly and I so rarely watch these channels directly off the pc it doesn't bother me that much as it still records and I'll just watch it off the extender if needed). It now does it after about 5 minutes using the newer ones. I have since reverted (had the same hour or two before having a problem) and then changed my mind and now the new drivers are back, since the newer ones allow the computer to recover with the exception of "h.264" playback in media center but is still useable for mpeg2 channels (including video) and will even switch to another mpeg 4 channel, play the audio and captions but no video. I believe my problem happened when I updated my intel hd2000 drivers to see if the update fixed the problem of intel drivers not supporting copy once h.264 programming for cox phoenix. I had uninstalled the intel drivers (since I don't normally use the onboard video) but it seems as if something is lingering around since that update. Since we are dealing with media center and cablecard I try to avoid installing additional codecs but some may be installed with the graphics drivers. I do have a backup I'll probably go back to and see if it works but I had much protected content recorded since then that I might lose. I'll probably be building a new system soon but will keep this old system around for the protected content.

By the way, I sure hope someone in phoenix will be beta testing the echo to make sure it has no problems with the plus pack channels. Since it works on the xbox, I've always assumed it would work on the echo but this latest snag makes me wonder if there will be a similar graphics driver or codec problem. I've also been more concerned about it for the Q since the Q isn't an extender (though that would be a cool feature to add to it that would allow it to serve as both a dedicated media center as well as an extender to other htpcs or even as an extender to itself especially if that is what it takes to playback my plus pack channels)
post #3569 of 4757
it appears that Im having HDCP issues between my HTPC and my pioneer VSX-1120 AVR. The local stations are copy free and the premiums arent. So when the signal comes to copyright it, the handshake is off between the AVR and HTPC resulting in the copying prohibited error from WMC.

Anyone know of an easy workaround with HDCP issues with the infinitv?
