I don't think I ever tried recording anything off these feeds before the mass syndication feed move from GDMX@99W to CWD 4120V@97W. When I try, using openATV 5.3, they usually behave like the CBS feeds did before its MPEG4 switchover, recording briefly, then aborting, as discussed on the Any FW to Record CBS? thread and elsewhere here. Other times the recording seems fine at the filesystem level, but not one of those so far has played at all.

The HD in my ME for the past 5 years has been WD20EURS-63S48Y0, formatted EXT3, which with the current version of openATV has been fairly reliable for recording and accessibility, other than on CBS. Smartctl and e2fsck indicate it's in good condition. I can still play all existing recordings sampled. My HD+ seems to be perfectly happy to record and play back from the same CWD feeds, and the ME is able to record and play back the 3940H@97W, 3740V@99W and 4120H@99W services.

Is anyone with an ME and software running kernel 3.9.2 able to make playable recordings from 4120V@97W?

I have not tried it yet. But I will tonight if possible. Do you have a spare Hard drive laying around? If you do..try formating it to ext 2 and try recording on it. See what that does. I think that was the final conclusion we reached in the CBS fw record. Or atleast I did. The ME ext 3/4 formatting/recording etc is not right and it only shows itself on high bitrate recordings. Ext 2 if I remember correctly helped this...also the mofied kernel helped I think. I used 3.3.1 kernel and posted it on here and it is still there.

But I would try the spare hdd and formatted to ext 2 and see if the results change any.

let me know!

Because of the previous thread discussion about EXT2 I spent considerable time trying a brand new HD formatted EXT2 before posting here. Results were identical, still reported mounted as type EXT4, so I returned the original EXT3 to keep the journaling as protection against forced reboots potentially causing corruption of my extensive collection. It turned out there were 4 recordings that could not be read by rsync, so I ran smartctl -x to verify the device wasn't failing, then deleted them and restored from backup. At the OP time I didn't see any point in mentioning the swap and test exercise in OP, trying to keep it short. This is the current status:
Code:
# blkid /dev/sda1
/dev/sda1: LABEL="..." UUID="..." TYPE="ext3"
# sfdisk -l /dev/sda | grep Linux
/dev/sda1        4096 3907029167 3907025072  1.8T 83 Linux
# mount | grep hdd
/dev/sda1 on /media/hdd type ext4 (rw,relatime,data=ordered)
# df | grep hdd
/dev/sda1            1938088840 1798366676 139722164  93% /media/hdd

Fellow Members, your posts are welcome here! Do not worry about posting everything perfect. Different receivers and LNB's will give you different Frequencies and Symbol Rates. Some set top boxes, PCI cards and USB receivers, Do Not Require all of the same information that others may need. It is not Required to post everything that others may need to tune in a feed. It is just most important to share the find. We can always adjust the Frequency and Symbol Rates and try the various Modulations and FEC's on our own receivers until we get a lock and then give a polite reply with what works for your receiver, as that information might help others as well. We all appreciate the efforts and energy of the Posters!
