There is a setup with RPi2 and an DVBSky S960 USB DVB-S2 tuner (m88ds3103 chipset) running latest Libreelec 7.95.3 and Tvheadend addon in the repo. The problem described below was also seen with LE7.0.2 and an older 4.1.xxxx Tvh. No change after upgrade to latest.
There are many short picture disturbances, at least 2-3 per minute. Meanwhile many "continuity counter error" entries can be seen in the log.
The signal strength looks good, the BER counter is zero.
I assume the input signal quality is good. There is a dual output twin LNB. One output is connected to this system the other is connected to a cheap Chinese set-top-box. While this RPi system suffers continuous problems on all HD channels, the other box performs well with absolute perfect reception without any disturbance over several hours.
I have been using Tvheadend on different locations and devices for ages now, and I always experienced that TVH systems are very sensitive for disturbances and produces short picture dropouts and this hateful "continuity counter error", however not in this extent.
What shall I do to find out the root cause and get rid of this annoying problem? Could it be a performance limitation of RPi?
