For some reason I can't figure out why my TBS6903 is now freezing, breaking up and maxing out the CPU (Up to 97%) and then sometimes crashing the PC when I tune to any of the UHD 4K channels on 101.°W and 103.0°W. Did anything change on the muxes? I never had any issues like this before. It doesn't matter which DVB Software I use. I have changed card slots for both TBS6903 and my GeForce 950, NVIDIA card and no success. It should be noted that none UHD channels play fine without issues.

My PC configurations are outlined below:

Processor: AMD FX(tm) 8120-Core Processor 3.10GHz
Memory: 32 GB
Video Display Card:  NVIDIA GEForce GTC 950
System Type: Windows 10 Pro. 64-bit

DVB Softwares:
SmartDVB
DVBDream
EBSPro

You need a video card that specifically handles HEVC and then install the LAV codec. The only video card that i know of that supports the HEVC h.265 codec is below.  I bought one, and everything works smoothly and no CPU usage on the computer...

Gigabyte Radeon Rx 460

Thanks, iboston for your response. The Nvidia GeForce 950 supports HEVC and I have the latest LAV version 69 codec installed. I never had this problem before 2 days or so ago. [frown]

I had a similar problem and hat is when I realized my pivot bushing were worn out on my dish. It was moving ever so slightly in the breeze and I finally noticed a signal drop before cpu would go to 99 percent and picture would freeze. For me all played well until the signal fell a couple of points, when it did cpu would max and DVBDream would lock up.

It's finally working flawlessly again. The issue seems to be two fold. First, I mistakenly must have installed both the 32bit and 64bit drivers for the LAV decoder. I uninstalled LAV decoder and only installed 32bit version of the decoder. Second, I also realized that I had set the LAV Hardware Acceleration mode to "NVIDIA CUVID" and that caused CPU to max out. Setting it to "DXVA (native)" solved the problem. Thanks, everyone for your suggestions and help.

Installing both 32 bit and 64bit versions of the filter should not be a problem. In fact, you might need both versions if you happen to occasional use different players and one of them happens to be a 32 bit program and the other 64bit. A 32bit player will need 32bit filters and a 64bit player will need the 64bit filters.

This was most likely your problem. Having both 32bit and 64bit filters install should not be a problem.

I will try it out and see.

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!
