Why use sasc-ng when tvheadend has built-in client for several card-servers?

cryptoworks emm writes are not supported in tvheadend yet (I setup it for tests), moreover ccam seem to doesn't work with my usb cardreader with pl2303 chip so Capmd.connection is also not usable for me. I do not know other way yet. Correct me if I'm wrong, I'll welcome it.

I am trying to setup tvheadend here in New zealand using the OptusD1 satellite.
Unfortunately it is not an option presented so I have to enter the multiplexes manually.

Can some one help with the settings? I don't know where to set the LNB frequency,
(it is 10750M for me) the "standard,enhanced etc" options for the LNB in the Satellite Config tab do not tell me anything ..
Also what is the "switchport" setting.

I obviously have things wrong, as when I put a transponder freq of 12483000 in, I get the following error:



Hope the author of this software is monitoring the list, or someone else can help.

Thanks,

Anyone? I would really like to get this going with XBMC
post on the developers mailing list and he should see your query

Hi,
unfortunately I'm a total Linux noob... I'd tried to get TVheadend to work an my XBMCfreak liveCD Install. Could install it, but no adapter was choosable in the web frontend. Afterwards I've tried to install the v4l packages and the s2-liplian drivers. Still no possible choise in the web gui. TVheadend doesn't recognize my DVB-S2 budget card. I've got an Technotrend TT-1600-S2, which works perfectly in my HD VDR setup. Anyone an idea how i could fix the problem? Any logs needed? I'll try to provide them.

I had to make sure I had the correct LNB type before my setup would work. (Under the "Satellite Setup" tab) In fact, I had to trawl through the code to see what frequency the LNB's were for the various names ... Standard, Circular .. etc

Edit: Oops did not read your post correctly, you are not even getting that far. Have you got any devices under /dev/adapter...?

Did anyone find a solution to the No output from xmltv setup problems ito the xmltv grabber. I see theirs been previous posts but still no answer. Googled also but could not find solutions. This is my 3rd format and the previous grabbers work 100%. I still cannot and an entry to the xml source in the web gui


xmltv: No output from "/usr/bin/tv_grab_za"
Hi, never mind I got the answer after 2 days of fidling Smile

The conf file must be in /home/hts/.xmltv !! then all is good, No output problam and the EPG works.

So I did tv_grab_za --configure --config-file /home/hts/.xmltv/tv_grab_za.conf

Hope this helps someone!

Hey bmentink,

Yep it is! And it is a kernel problem: http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=575207 http://linuxtv.org/hg/v4l-dvb/rev/f3f59eb960fb looks like one of the dvb frontend modules has not been build (correctly). Which distribution are you using? You should probably start looking/posting in theire respective forums.

Hey thanks, I'm using XBMCfreak generic V4 LiveCD, build up on ubuntu 9.10.
I'll investigate this elsewhere... Thanks! Nerd

UPDATE:
I've got it fixed... thx for the advice. The problem was an error within driver compilation. Had to disable fireDTV support. Found this solution in the german vdr-portal.de forum
Does anyone know a ppa to install the pvr-testing2 in lucid beta2?

Thank you very much.

I'm using TVHeadend 2.11 on an Ubuntu Karmic 9.10 XBMC LiveCD (9.11 stable). I have some sound issues when watching LiveTV. On different ocassion and channels I get only a choppy sound output. My HTPC is connected over HDMI directly to my AVR. Where do I find the TVheadend logs to investigate the problem? Or does anybody have an idea what could be wrong?
