Random Reboots w/PVR-500

I am running MythTV via atrpms packages on a CentOS 5.3 install. I have
a PVR-250, a PVR-500 and a HD HomeRun. I am getting random reboots when
capturing from the PVR-500. There are no problems when capturing from
the PVR-250. It is not a MythTV issue as it occurs when I just cat from
the appropriate /dev/videoX device file. There are no messages on the
console or in /var/log/messages. All of a sudden the machine reboots and
I'm looking at the BIOS startup screen. The problem has persisted
through kernel updates. It started not long after I installed a new
motherboard and processor due to the old one dying. So, I'm thinking
chip issue or something like that.

Any ideas will be greatly appreciated.

Ken

Not sure what you replaced, but one thing I would look into
is perhaps a newer/more powerful power supply. I know, the
PSU is so reduced in importance, and removed from the
awareness of many, but I've had weird issues happen when I
had a flaky PSU, such as PVR/DVB cards wouldn't initialize
properly, or wouldn't load their firmware properly.

I also had an issue where some bad caps on a video card would
cause sporadic reboots, and issues. When I replaced the video
card, things on that box went back to normal.
(2 different boxes. First was a linux box, 2nd was a Winblows
box, but both were AMD 64 X2 boxes)

Re: Random Reboots w/PVR-500 [In reply to]

Thoughts......

Is the psu upto the job of the new motherboard/CPU. Is there a possibility
of a thermal or other environmental issue with the processor? e.g. is heatsink correctly
connected? Can you beg/borrow/steal a chunkier PSU to try a swap?

Clean all connectors. Could you have damaged a connector when installing new motherboard etc ?
or pushed the solder away from the back of the PCB? A dry joint is possible especially on the larger connectors : Do any of the
solder joints on the PSU connectors particularly look "dull"? Or, just resolder them anyway if you're OK with a soldering
iron (I've seen this often on TV HT side)

After restart and being presented with BIOS does it then continue with the boot to Myth
or just hangs? i.e. are we suspecting spurious resets?

Can you swap back the old processor? and do a 2 way uP/Motherboard swap with all 4 combinations?
(new/new, old/new, old/old, new/old)

Can you remove the Disk drives one by one? or any other peripherals?

I'm rabbiting now : In summary: can you change/remove as much as possible and see if there is any change in behaviour?

I am running MythTV via atrpms packages on a CentOS 5.3 install. I have
a PVR-250, a PVR-500 and a HD HomeRun. I am getting random reboots when
capturing from the PVR-500. There are no problems when capturing from
the PVR-250. It is not a MythTV issue as it occurs when I just cat from
the appropriate /dev/videoX device file. There are no messages on the
console or in /var/log/messages. All of a sudden the machine reboots and
I'm looking at the BIOS startup screen. The problem has persisted

Re: Random Reboots w/PVR-500 [In reply to]

I orginally thought power supply and upgraded to a newer, more
powerful(700W) one. It didn't help.

I've moved around/removed as much as I could; i.e. drives, cards, etc.,
with no change. I've tried multiple video cards and moving the PVR cards
around, same results.

The old MB/CPU combo was a 32bit AMD setup. Something completely died
and I couldn't get it to post, so I installed the current combo which
were laying around from upgrading another system.

With the card installed, but not in use, the system will run fine for
days. Myth will record from PVR-250 without a problem. Start one capture
from the PVR-500 and in 1 to ~20 minutes, the system reboots.

When it reboots, it comes back up just fine.

Re: Random Reboots w/PVR-500 [In reply to]

It's sounding like Mark Paulus' theory is the best contender: Dodgy caps on the PVR-500 or motherboard.

Given that the PSU itself is known to be OK, and you've swapped a lot of stuff already....a change of thought...

I can't see any way for a PCI card to generate a genuine spurious reset to the motherboard. Though someone may correct me.

I can only imagine that a reboot could happen if the supplies are marginally decoupled either on the motherboard where the PCI connector "exits"
or on the card itself, or a combination of the two, pulling down one of the supplies for enough time to do an unintentional power on-reset.

Improving the decoupling on either board may help as the (lack of) total decoupling would be the problem. I'm suspecting that the source is the PCI card but the effect is on the motherboard only.

Depending how brave you are......in reverse order of ease!

I'm not sure if you are able to add SMD caps yourself? If you are, don't worry about the value just use the largest value you can find in the same package type , and solder it over the top, in parallel of the old ones. SI theory has changed recently on this point, it used to be the biggest value cap, but the increased inductance tends to swamp the capacitive gains.

Slightly less fiddly would be to take flying leads from the PSU directly to the PCI card, reducing the Vdd drop along the motherboard. Even just a fat ground lead could help.

Alternatively, if you aren't able to do any decoupling/soldering experiments! You could try to reduce any possible undesired impedance by cleaning up the contacts on the PCI card, making them as shiny-clean as possible. This is likely to be resistive not inductive and so will impact overall Vdd droop not instantaneous droop, but it may give you some margin.

Can you use a PCI slot closer to where the ATX supply enters the motherboard? This would improve the net impedance.

Can you try a PCI extender board or several stacked? The idea here is to increase the inductance, to provide more Vdd isolation from the motherboard supplies, on the assumption that the PCI card integrity/margin is OK, but it couples back noise to the motherboard.


Sorry again if this is information overload

Subject: Re:Re: [ivtv-users] Random Reboots w/PVR-500

I orginally thought power supply and upgraded to a newer, more
powerful(700W) one. It didn't help.

I've moved around/removed as much as I could; i.e. drives, cards, etc.,
with no change. I've tried multiple video cards and moving the PVR cards
around, same results.

The old MB/CPU combo was a 32bit AMD setup. Something completely died
and I couldn't get it to post, so I installed the current combo which
were laying around from upgrading another system.

With the card installed, but not in use, the system will run fine for
days. Myth will record from PVR-250 without a problem. Start one capture
from the PVR-500 and in 1 to ~20 minutes, the system reboots.

When it reboots, it comes back up just fine.

Re: Random Reboots w/PVR-500 [In reply to]

Resurrecting an old thread.

To rehash the issue: The motherboard in my mythbackend died. I replaced
it with an ASUS K8V-X SE and AMD Athlon 64 3000+. It also had a PVR-250
and a PVR-500 in it. The formerly rock solid machine started having
random reboots with no warning. I traced it down to the PVR-500. When
capturing from the PVR-500, the box would suddenly reboot. Nothing in
the logs or on the console.

So I finally got some time and money to throw at this issue. I ebay'd a
ASRock K8Upgrade-NF3 motherboard. I swapped it out for the ASUS board.
The machine is rock solid again. The ASUS board uses a VIA K8T800
northbridge and a VIA VT8237R southbridge. The ASRock board use a single
NVIDIA nForce3 250 chip. I mention the chipsets as I suspect that the
VIA chipset were the culprit. I have no evidence, just my gut. The ASUS
board ran fine when the PVR-500 wasn't in use. The two just didn't play
well together.

Just an FYI,
Ken

I also had this problem with an old VIA board. Rebooted under heavy
load, as in, when more than one tuner started recording.

The following append fixed it, and it ran for years:

append="noapic nolapic pci=noacpi acpi=off"
