NextPVR Freezing during Live TV Playback

  • I have two RPi2s and both exhibit the same problem when watching live TV. I'm using the NextPVR addon to connect to a backend NPVR server running on a Windows 10 desktop computer.


    In the first case, after watching live TV for up to 6 hours, the stream will suddenly freeze.

    Attached is the Kodi Log for this problem: kodiLog_20181218.zip


    Please note the following in the log file:

    Code
    1. 18:20:20.130 T:1323352992 NOTICE: CVideoPlayerAudio::Process - stream stalled
    2. 18:20:20.911 T:1331741600 INFO: CVideoPlayerVideo - Stillframe detected, switching to forced 29.970030 fps

    5. 18:20:22.757 T:1722024864 DEBUG: Stream stalled, start buffering. Audio: 0 - Video: 0



    In the 2nd case, I've been using JSON RPC to remotely change the Live TV channels and periodically after a channel change, Kodi will freeze.

    Please note the following in the log file:

    In both cases, the RPi2 is still running and I'm able to log in to it using SSH.

    I've not been able to figure out why this is happening and would appreciate any help anyone can offer.


    Thank you in advance.
