    Sudden loss of one channel

    A day ago I lost "TV2 Nyhetskanalen" and further investigation reveals that Acamd seems unable to decode, any idea what the log from Acamd means?
    Code:
    #NEXT#
    C:\Users\Public\NPVR\MDPlugins\Hauppauge WinTV 88x DVB-S_S2 Tuner_Demod #1-1\ACamd.dll

    Any ideas Sub? My stupid STB can still decode the channel, signal strength and quality on npvr is good, no errors in other logs. Would you want a full ts recording from that frequency?

    I've got no idea what that might mean. For that type of error, realistically I'd suspect only the acamd or newcamd developers could help you diagnose the problem, but I'm not sure if they're contactable anywhere. (or spend hours googling what the acamd log messages are telling you, and reading stacks of dodgy foreign websites for clues)

    Maybe try deleting the channel and rescanning for it, on the off-chance it's changed sid or frequency or something.

    Mm, I'll give it a try.

    Nope, no dice. It seems that it can't find ECM in the stream. I can see the same on some other channels that I don't use.

    New development! Sub, as you may remember me and Chris (Sheik Yerbouti) had problems with 4.2.2 and decrypting. Today I tried 4.2.3 and it works, and what do you know: the issue with the lost channel(s) is gone! STRANGE!
