Nextpvr unable to properly initialize hauppauge 1955 video device for capture video
I have a haupauge 1955 that is connected via composite and svideo to an ALLO device (Cisco ipvideo settop device that only provides these outputs) It works great- channel changing works but it has one issue. Nextpvr cannot initialize the Haupauge correctly. After every boot I have to start WINTV before Nextpvr otherwise i just get video static (Audio works just fine). Here is sample timeline:
2017-03-18 20:44 reboot
2017-03-18 20:44 Start nextpvr
2017-03-18 20:45 LiveTV - Static
2017-03-18 20:45 Kill nextpvr
2017-03-18 20:46 start WINTV - works just fine.
2017-03-18 20:46 Kill wintv
2017-03-18 20:47 start nextpvr
2017-03-18 20:47 Livetv - works
The NPVR.log files do not have significant differences in the two startups.
The Nrecord.log file have the following relevant differences in the two startups (full Logfile also included)
Firststartup (Bad - Before wintv startup)

This is getting to be annoying.
As a test, if you create a temp channel using composite video (with nothing connected), if you first try that channel, then try the svideo again, does it work? (ie, forcing it to think the video crossbar is not routed correctly, so it'll force the routing rather than just accepting it reporting its already on the correct input).
If that helps, then I can change the logic to force it to route the crossbar when building the graph. The app shouldn't have to do that, but we can if it helps.
I created a Composite channel - When started after a boot it comes right up so perhaps using composite instead of svideo would be a good temporary solution. (The composite cables don't stay physically connected as well but I need them for sound anyway). Switching to Svideo after starting Composite works too.

That has seems to have fixed the issue.

Fixed - Disabled Nextpvr and it came up. Maybe its not the same one. Anyway thanks for the help I don't need anything else at this time.
