Re: HDHomeRun emulator using minisatip?

I checked and the logs are not overlapping.

On the minisatip I did not see anything wrong and as you can see in "Start streaming" messages, minisatip sends data to the client.

But I saw couple of issues in the plex tuner service logs:
[E] sat2ip_streamer::send_describe_command. Zero frontends are detected
WARN - [E] dvb_channel_scanner_t::do_scan. Tune failed for

If you can provide a log that contains the same period I can try to see if something is wrong.

Hi cata,

second try ... just did the scan a few minutes ago. Minisatip output and then plex tuner log.

https://paste.ee/p/nZjbf

Minisatip is at 192.168.242.58 in the logs.

Maybe they "misinterpret" the response/stream ... Shall I run a similar scan with the octopus and paste the log ?

Cheers
Alex

Hi,

the only idea I have is that the signal is reported a bit later. But even after that there are still errors.

Are you in contact with the developers?

I suppose the sources are not free right ?

Thanks

Hi Cata,

strange ... ok. Then we know it is not minisatip per se. I will try to attach a DVB UDB stick to the VM and see if the "lag" is gone by then, I think I still have one somewhere from my EyeTV experiments that might work with Linux.

Yes, I am in the closed Beta group for PlexDVR since the beginning. Shall I ask if they want to get in touch with you? I assume the Tuner code is closed source, although the reuse a lot of OSS projects (e.g. their encoder is FFMPEG).

Cheers,
Alex

Hi,

I am open on discussing with the developers on any existing issues.

Yes, please try the DVB USB stick and let me know how it works. The signal should be read pretty fast after tuning.

Thank you

Try also the latest commit, it should attempt to get the satip signal faster

Hi cata,

I checked with the new version, inkl. my eyeTV USB Stick attached to the VM, and it is the same behavior. I can very quickly tune/switch channels if I use a .m3u in VLC, but PlexDVR still does not "find" any channels in their channel scan step.

Will post you directly on what the plex Team finds/says and try to make contact.

Cheers
Alex

hi all,

quick update - the root of this is within PlexDVR. It's tuner API simply does not work with minisatip. I am in touch with them and will get information to Cata.

Kind regards,
Alex
