Gigablue QUAD UHD 4K

Post by diegolm » Sun Oct 07, 2018 2:03 pm

Hi all,

I am triying to configure minisat IP + tvheadend 4.6.2.42. I have installed tvheadend on a PC. I have a Gigablue QUAD UHD 4K receiver with 8 FBC tuners configured and working together with INVERTO IDLU-32UL40-UNBOO-OPP FBC tuner (Astra 19.2 from SCR 7 to SCR15). TVheadend can't search channels. TVheadend "detects" minisatip receiver on correct IP with 8 tuners, but no one of tuners works.
This is my config:

TVHEADEND 4.6.2.42
- Tuner configuration - DVBS-8
- RTP/AVP/TCP (embedded data): ON
- Fast input switch: ON
- Full mux RX mode supported: ON
- FE supported: ON
- Rest on config (OFF)
- ALL TUNERS ENABLED
- 8 Tuners found (4 positions AA, AB, BA, BB)
Name: SAT>IP DVB-S Tuner #1 (192.168.1.100)
Over-the-air EPG: ON
Satellite positions: 4
Master tuner: This tuner

SO... all tuners showed in tvheadend shows SNR and SIGNAL Strenght UNKNOWN. Can you help me with the correct minisatip parameters on execution?

Thanks a lot.

Hi,

Try adding -1 3, then you need to add -j parameters that match your lnb. See the description of -j parameter in README.MD


thanks

Well your IDLU-32UL40-UNBOO-OPP has something called slot and frequency (32 of them). You need to specify those with. -j:

-j 0:1-1280

Where 0 is first adapter, 1 is the slot, 1280 is rhe frequency.

Eg:

So... Can I understand that if Gigablue has 2xquad tuners tuners are:
0:1, 0:2, 0:3, 0:4, 1:1, 1:2, 1:3 and 1:4?? Tuners are called A,B,C,D,E,F,G,H

In config, Tuner A is configured, and rest of the tuners are connected to tuner A. Frecuencies for SCR are understood.
Thanks.

Minisatip does not take into consideration Enigna2 tuners configuration. You need to use -j to specify the unicable parameters for minisatip

Doesn't works.
Probably I'm stupid, but, do I need to exec something different or other commands on the Gigablue box?

minisatip -N --satip-xml http://127.0.0.1:8554 -R /usr/share/minisatip/html -j 1:0 1210, 2:0 1420, 3:0 1680, 4:0 2040

Do I need init 4 and then init 2?

There's something that I am doing wrong..
Do you know another Gigablue UHD QUAD 4K case for compare how it works?

Thanks.

Hi,

Please stop enigma ( or standby ). Then run:

minisatip -R /usr/share/minisatip/html -j 1:0-1210, 2:0-1420, 3:0-1680, 4:0-2040

Hi again,

1- I used minisatip -R /usr/share/minisatip/html -j 5:0-1364 -j 6:0-1458 -j 7:0-1494 -j 8:0-1530 for use only 5 to tuners for tvheadend (if I use minisatip -R /usr/share/minisatip/html -j 5:0-1364, 6:0-1458, 7:0-1494, 8:0-1530 only shows 1 tuner)
2- I exec minisatip -R /usr/share/minisatip/html -j 5:0-1364 -j 6:0-1458 -j 7:0-1494 -j 8:0-1530 with gigablue in standby mode, it shows all tuners ok on http:xxx:8080 port and tvheadend recognices tuners.
3- If I wake up gigablue on tv to watch channels all channels with yellow characters and doesn't tune, all tuners on minisatip goes to down at this moment.
4 - Same behaviour if I exec init 4 and exec minisatip -R /usr/share/minisatip/html -j 5:0-1364 -j 6:0-1458 -j 7:0-1494 -j 8:0-1530 When I go to init 3 to wake up enigma, tuners go down on minisatip
It seems that can't share tuners between enigma2 and minisatip ... don't you think?

I am using FBC tuners from position 10 because I have 2 DM800SE using Unicable legacy SCRs. I want to use first 4 tuners for tv watching, PIP and recording etc etc and latest 4 tuners to use tvheadend

Have you got any idea?

Thanks a lot
