Scopus IRD-2980 MPEGoIP Continuity Errors

Post by steph » Thu Feb 28, 2019 12:46 pm

Hi All,

I've purchase a used Scopus IRD-2980 as a learning tool for satellite broadcast and transport streams. It is licensed for MPEGoIP Out and I've configured the receiver to tune multiples FTA services available in the sky. For some reason, I can't seem to get any FTA mux/services to stream out of MPEGoIP without continuity errors. I tried UDP and RTP using unicast and multicast. All are reporting continuity errors yet the status page doesn't report any errors.

Tomorrow I should be getting my BNC to RCA adapter so that I can confirm that the decoder itself sees a clean stream and the video/audio plays fine...

But figured I'd post in case there's some nuance in setting up MPEGoIP Out that I'm not aware of.

Any help would be appreciated.

The IRD is running f/w 1.60.1.

Thanks,

Steph

So I've tested the CVBS Out and Monitor out and the video plays fine so, for some reason, it looks like it's only the MPEGoIP Out that's problematic. I know it isn't my managed switch or my PC where I'm monitoring the stream using TSReader since my DSR-6000 streams no problem.

Could it be a firmware problem? I realize that this particular IRD reached its end-of-life... I've contacted Harmonic but they say they don't keep/archive firmware versions for devices that reached their end of life (sure).

Anyway, any help would be appreciated.

I'm curious... I'd like to know if the IRD-2980 is known to be sluggish. When navigating on the web management site or the command line interface, it find that it quite sluggish. I wonder if that's "normal" or if that might play a role in my MPEGoIP Out having problems.
