I have a lot of patience and I like testing. But sometime I give up, because it is easier to buy a SAT card for the PC.

I have a JESS LNB 1Freq 975, 2Freq 1025, 3 Freq 1075

./minisatip -e 1-3 -j 1:0-975 , 2:0-1025 , 3:0-1075 -f -l http

that should at least work?

Because I don't have pins, I don't need pins.

yeah that is correct but there should be no spaces.

You can try adding -l dvb

So I made some progress in testing.

minisatip -j 0:0-975,1:1-1025,2:2-1075,3:3-1125,4:5-1175,5:5-1225,6:6-1275,7:7-1325 -f -l dvb

With this line I have come so far that I can address all tuners. Unfortunately this only works if enigma2 is not running. If I leave out the first tuner at Minisatip, i.e. start at 1:1 it works but as soon as I start enigma2 all tuners seem to be busy. I only tried the 1 or only the last tuner, but as soon as I start enigma2 there is no way. Is there anything I can do to use 1-2 tuners via enigma2 and 6 others with minisatip?

Furthermore the switching takes some time, it seems to test 1-2 tuners more and more often and only use them on the 3rd tuner, but this is sporadic.

I went and I looked at the code in dvb.c and it seems that the diseqc / jess /unicable commands are always send using the master tuner (0 or 1). In order to have minisatip work correctly you need to give minisatip access to tuner 0 or 1. Or use enigma2 rtsp server for minisatip.
