How can I see these buffer overruns?
How long have it taken for them to show up previously?
So far I have recorded about 6 shows which have had subtitles and scores
that didn't with the buffer overrun prone code in there (whatever it
is). In my early tests I kept a close look at the values of buf and
outpus which from the looks of it points to the buffers. They wrap
nicely every time, but I guess that's not the problem.
In certain cases, data should be overflowing any given buffer with the
current code then? I'm probably not the best person for that job, but I
can look at it some more. I just don't think I have actually experienced
such an event.
I think the biggest string length I have seen have been 41 (0x29) and
that didn't seem to cause trouble..? All my subtitles have been fine
Well, I'll see what happens when it's kept running for a few days...
Do you have any info on what channels people were watching when they got
a buffer overrun? Recording or Live TV?
I'm currently looking through the archives to see if I can find
anything. I see that the problem is supposed to be in
FormatTeletextSubtitles, so I'll try to understand what that does in
