Would be very surprised if the switch wasn't picky with only one LNB attached... When you get a lock either way, it tells me the that the DISEqC is not picked up (well, sent out) correctly... But again, try looking at the working setup from one of the regular receivers - how is DISEqC configured here? Where is it "you can choose no DISEqC, or DISEqC Pos1 or 2, and still get my channels."??
Sorry, I meant on the normal receivers it isn't being picky, I can choose whatever and still get the channels. At least on the box I tried (I have different models). I might try the other boxes when the guests are gone.
I recommend ignoring DISEqC until you have the card working. When you write that you get lock "to some of the transponders" that really is a tell tale sign for me that the driver isn't working!
I assume your are running 10.04 with a 2.6.32 kernel. Your card have had drivers included in the kernel since 2.6.28 - but they are buggy... Please take a look at this link for hints to a solution: http://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/Hauppauge_WinTV-HVR-4000
I bet that's what I did back in 8.10, skip DISEqC all together. I can't remember if I managed to get it working on 8.10 through installing the drivers myself (using the link you gave) or the work done by MANDINGO. I I'll play around with the firmwares and drivers in the coming days.
You should be aware that due to limitations of the card Myth (or any system) can not use DVB-S and DVB-T simultaneously. Not a problem on a desktop setup, but for a server setup like Myth this limitation is important.. And I am quite sure that Myth will not "release" the DVB-S lock to allow using it as a DVB-T tuner when not requiring DVB-S... The problem is that for Myth there is no conflict, since these 2 tuners are on different adapters. (Adapter 0 should be DVB-S and adapter 1 DVB-T, if I remember correct?)
That was changed last version or something like that. Now it's on the same adapter but different frontend eg. adapter0/frontend0 = dvbs, adapter0/frontend1 = dvbt
I would argue that you should be able (with luck and fine tuning) to catch the Thor Nordic beam on a T90 - but the thing with these beams is that they are not decreasing linearly in strength when you move out of their focus area...
Yeah, that's what I noticed when viewing coverage maps. It's a shame. If it was linear I bet I could have picked it up, at least on a non-cloudy day. Looking at a map the last place that can get it is Stuttgart and I'm "only" around 300km away. http://www.satbeams.com/footprints?lat=46.09&lng=7.23&zoom=5&beam=5718&type=normal&name=Temp
Would you still argue it could maybe work or am I a bit too off?
edit: I forgot there's also Sirius at 4.8E for the Swedish channels that seems a bit closer: www.satbeams.com/footprints?lat=46.09&lng=7.23&zoom=5&beam=5135&type=normal&name=Temp
