Hi Alexander,

Sometimes, when switching to a channel, playback hangs for a few seconds. Sometimes these hangs even cause XBMC crash. When it hangs xvdr prints tons of mesages to syslog. You can find the log and recorded stream here

As you can see, the recording is valid. I can play it with XBMC or VLC, however, when playing it from the PVR recordings menu it plays a different, very short video, a few seconds are missing there. Is there something wrong with index?

Just checked with VNSI - the same issue. May be it's my system's related issue...
Do you have any ideas what can be the cause? How can I debug it?

I think it's a VDR related issue. You could try to recreate the index by running:

# vdr genindex=/video/recname/date.rec/

vdr --genindex generates index file identical to the initial.

Seems this is really VDR but not XVDR issue. I can reproduce it even with streamdev. When playback hangs I'm getting the 'vdr: [5071] ERROR: 1 ring buffer overflow (188 bytes dropped)' message in syslog.

It seems oscam related...
