    Freezes, High CPU usage, Blue screens!

    Q. What parameters can cause freezes and high CPU usage during watching an encrypted channel with emulators?
    A.
    DWís
    Do not use multiple active EMUís at once. Itís very important.
    This is the main job of emulators:
    Receiving ECMís from the Host (DVB application) -> doing processing on those packets -> sending final result (DWís or decrypted words) back to the host.
    Now suppose you have running 2 EMUís at once. One of them sends a correct DW and another one sends an incorrect DW. Result is freeze. Host program will process all of them. It is not able to identify which one is correct and which one is incorrect.
    Codecs
    Do not mess your system with All in one codec packages.
    If you want to screw your current Windows installation (especially if itís Vista), go a head! Now enjoy freezes, poor video output and post, hey you bastard! your plugin does not work!
    For example after installing the famous ďvista codec packageĒ on your Windows Vista (which is not recommended for dvb-s applications), you have only one option : reinstalling your Windows!
    Poor signal level.
    Duh!
    Blue screens! _http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blue_Screen_of_Death
    Most of the times blue screens mean hardware conflicts.
    If you are using AMD based computers, and you have at least 2 blue screens per day, do not forget to update the BIOS and drivers of your system. (I had the same problem)
    Try latest driver of your dvb-s card instead of original driver which was shipped with your card.
    Also try non BDA drivers of your DVB-S card.
    Sometimes changing the PCI slot of your internal card will help.
    Dual core CPUís
    Results of the Incorrect synchronizations during multithreading are freezes and deadlocks.
    Some of the dvb-s applications are NOT compatible with dual core CPUís.
    Try to change the CPU affinity on your dvb-s application (by using windows task manager) or some of the dvb-s applications have this option internally.
    Also you can change the priority of your program (windows task manager -> set it to above normal or high and most the times, this option is available in your dvb-s application too)
    Running unnecessary features
    Satellite time was introduced in vPlug for TPS channels to eliminate the answering of this question:
    Why TPS channels are working for 5 minutes , then I have black screen and so on.
    TPS uses this cycle:
    [Viaccess-1] - TPSCrypt4 - [Viaccess-1] - TPSCrypt4 and so on.
    [Viaccess-1] does not need any kinds of time synchronization.
    So if your systemís time is not synchronized correctly , you will have color - black- color Ö
    By enabling SatTime in vPlug.ini, you donít need to be worry about these details.
    And if your systemís time is synchronized correctly, just turn it off and enjoy fast channel changing of TPS channels and low systemís resources consumption.
    [this feature is on by default and will be Ö]
    Also EMM handling needs a lot of systemís resources [Memory, CPU]. If your keys are correct, turn off EMM handling and AU in vPlug. (edit vPlug.ini or v_emm.ini)
    CSA and FFdeCSA _http://csa.irde.to/
    CSA or common scrambling algorithm, is the final process of decrypting an encrypted signal and normally itís done by the host (your dvb-s application) .
    It has been implemented in 2 ways: CSA.DLL and FFDeCSA.DLL. (most of the DVB applications have included these algoís internally, so you wonít notice the existence of them.)
    CSA.DLL can process one packet at a time and FFDeCSA.DLL is designed for processing of multiple packets at once. So by using FFDeCSA, CPU usage will be reduced dramatically as you can see it some the dvb applications. Itís very important for HD channels (reducing CPU usage as much as possible). You will have a lot of freezes during watching of HD encrypted channels Without FFDeCSA, and this is not the bug in processing of ECMís by EMUís.
    You have 2 choices for HD channels. Upgrade the hardwareís of your computer and continue using of your dvb application which is using CSA.DLL or switch to an application with FFDeCSA support.
    For example ALT-DVB is using FFDeCSA(.dll) (one of the 1st in Windows) and ProgDVB or MT are using CSA(.dll) internally (till now).
    If you have a P-III, itís better to buy a hardware based dvb-s card. For example a Nexus-s has an onboard CSA chip and also MPEG2 decoder. You will have max 10% CPU usage with that on encrypted channels. ďButĒ these cards can not pass the full TS to dvb applications by design and it will cause a lot of headaches for programmers. So most of the new born dvb applications do not support them.
    Turn on windows updates
    Sometimes you need latest patches form Microsoft to eliminate stuttering. (thnx to okapi)

    EPG modules/plugins
    Also you can always disable EPG modules too

    Ok, good post.
    But with your permission, I want to note some points more to have a good sharing on PC with DVB Card.

    Internet broadband connection:
    This is one of the most important points when we talk about sharing.
    The quality of DSL is essential to avoid freeze, stops, and many more bugs.
    The internet line must be stable, with no peaks, so it is highly recommended that dvb satellite receiver for PC is connected via ethernet if available, since a line through wifi signal peaks change continuously and cause despair when we are watching the playback of any TV program.
    If you don't have a fast Internet connection, sharing experience will not be able to enjoy the highest quality.

    Correct alignment of the dish
    It is clear that without a good alignment of the dish to the satellite desired, azimuth, elevation, etc ..., the signal is broken or missing causing a negative experience of sharing.
    Problems with DiseqC devices and long wired and many joints also seriously damage the reception signal and thus produce a black screen or freezes.
    F Connectors defective or faulty cable splicers also cause signal loss or shorts that can damage our equipment.

    I note another point:
    Have a graphic card with hardware decoder for H264 and mpeg2. better one is nvidia graphic card like Geforce 9500 GT or better.

    everyone know how configure cccam plugin for best performance?

    ping time:
    extremity 300ms (lower is better.for me its 121ms)
    choose suitable code and demux:
    arcsoft and cyberlink is good

    With the last version of Hadu is very easy, only you must put your cline as the emulator has been designed and Hadu will do the rest for you.
    But I insist, the internet broadband connection is very important, if your ping is over 300 ms, you are outside.
    With a DVB PC Card, is very easy configure your viewer, and remember to try the best codecs for your computer.
    Each PC accepts better some codecs than others, because of configuration of your machine. (Graphics Card, Memory, Processor, etc...)
    A good graphics card with HD management (HDMI output or DVI at least) is very important to avoid freeze, and the minimum RAM memory of graphic card must be 500Mb at least, 1 Gb recommended).
    This is my opinion.
