HDHR being accessed
I'm running the rpmfusion .22 packages on F12. This is a master backend w/ an HD-5000 & HDHR. My HDHR runs directly into my master backend's second NIC; it's isolated and nothing else can connect to it. I'm getting a lot of errors like this:

2010-01-04 21:55:15.054 HDHRSH(101170CE-1): RunTS(): data_length = 9212 remainder = 188
2010-01-04 21:55:15.606 HDHRSH(101170CE-1): RunTS(): data_length = 9212 remainder = 188
2010-01-04 21:55:15.656 HDHRSH(101170CE-1): RunTS(): data_length = 9212 remainder = 188
2010-01-04 21:55:15.956 HDHRSH(101170CE-1): RunTS(): data_length = 1316 remainder = 188

I've read that this is due to signal strength issues, but here's the strange thing. When myth isn't recording (and frontends are shutoff) my HDHR starts streaming both tuners to the server. Myth shows them as "not recording" but yet when I run bwm-ng I can see ~40Mb worth of data hitting the NIC. Also, the two tuner lights are turned on. This wasn't an issue w/ .21.

I came home from work today and the power supply had failed for the unit (common problem) I really don't want this thing "on" 24/7 & burning up more power supplies.

Has anyone else seeing anything like this? or have a fix I can use?

Thanks,

Is this a fresh install of the OS? Anything else running that could talk to
the HDHR? I'm using an HDHR on Ubuntu 9.10 with Myth .22 and haven't had any
trouble like this. I don't have it on it's own NIC though. Have you tried
updating the HDHR firmware? I'm not aware of any way to get the HDHR to
start sending data by itself, so something is likely asking for data. The
trick is finding out what. Anything media related in "ps ax"?

I have herd of that happening if you have EIT scanning (
http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/EIT ) enabled on your HDHR.

Thanks Travis. I just figured out my problem. ...guess what ...it's user error. :)
I ran mythbackend -v all and as soon as my HDHR lites up I noticed EIT scanning was being logged.
I didn't mean to turn that on, but I did. As soon as that is disabled my HDHR is behaving as expected.

Whew!
Thanks guys.
