Is DVB-S2 working in MythTV currently ?
« on: February 23, 2010, 04:21:42 pm »
Hi,

can anybody tell me if DVB-S2 is working in the current MythTV (Avanards 2:0.22.0-fixes23565-0ubuntu0) ?

I am trying to scan for some german DVB-S2 HDTV channels and I can't get it working :(
It is ARD HD, ZDF HD and arte HD.
I have tried another driver from her http://hg.kewl.org/ and this one :hg clone http://linuxtv.org/hg/v4l-dvb
But they don't work at all with my TechnoTrend S2-3200 not even with normal DVB-s.

The driver from Convergent v4l2-firmware_0+hg20090324-1_all.deb is the one I am using right now.

I don't know what should be there in MythTV to enable scan - I see no option of setting up DVB-S2 - so maybe it is not compiled in ?

I tried using scan-s2 and scan to create a channels.conf - but MythTV don't find the channels. It's like it does not try DVB-S2.
I can also not add a transponder in MythTV and scan it - does not work.

I have googled for everything that I could think of - like the format of channels.conf, but did not find anything :(

scan-s2 finds the channels with the current driver I have got (convergent version v4l2-firmware_0+hg20090324-1_all.deb) :

Code: [Select]
# echo "S 11362000 H 22000000 2/3" > /tmp/scan-s2-input
# ./scan-s2 -a 8  -o zap /tmp/scan-s2-input
API major 5, minor 1

Just tried to get in on irc, but did not work :(

Can you fill me in on what the problems are ? I am sure there are others interested ;)

Won't be online more today.

Thanks
