HOW TO: minisatip on openatv

Post by cata »

There are 2 ways of running minisatip on openatv (or boxes running enigma2):
- standalone - where minisatip is using a tuner exclusively. In this mode, you need to assign tunners (1-X) to enigma2, the remaining tuners (X-N) to minisatip. The advantage of this method is that minisatip can use all the features as on x86/arm Linux systems, but a static partition of the tuners in which minisatip will use just the assigned devices. Personally I use the following way to start minisatip:

Code: Select all

echo 'ps ax | grep minisatip | grep -v grep | grep -v tail || /usr/bin/minisatip -e 4-8 -R /usr/share/minisatip/html/' >> /etc/cron/crontabs/root
-e 4-8 is required to enable just adapter 4 to 8. If you do not use enigma2 at all you can leave it in standby mode and remove -e 4-8

- using enigma2 as backend
Minisatip can share the enigma2 backend to be able to tune to several channels while enigma2 is also in use. The advantage of this mode is that minisatip can share the same tuner with enigma2 and all the tuners when enigma2 is not in use. It can also use enigma2 to decrypt channels with CI(+) card. The disadvantage of this method is related to a driver bug that does not allow scanning or listening to radio channels due to low bit rate. For this you need to revert to the standalone mode. Some satip clients when they tune, they request just pid 0 (PAT). Because of this, the tuning may fail.

Code: Select all

minisatip -N --satip-xml http://127.0.0.1:8554 -R /usr/share/minisatip/html
At this point minisatip will start advertising all the tuners over the network.
In Tvheadend for example, an additional setting needs to be made for everything to work correctly (due to the driver bug):

Configuration -> DVB Input -> TV Adapters -> on SAT IP adapters -> Enable 'Send Full Play Command'

This setting works perfectly also on standalone mode.

Hi Cata,

first of all: great work and sorry for my bad english ;)

i have some problems with de minisatip on my VU+ (VU+ Uno 4K SE with DVB-S2 FBC Tuner). I have installed OpenATV 6.4, all 8 tuner works fine under E2. I installed minisatip server (Version 1.1.41) over the openatv feed and start the server in backend-mode

Code: Select all

minisatip -N --satip-xml http://127.0.0.1:8554 -R /usr/share/minisatip/html

The server is running and the webinterface is available.

The SAT>IP server is now available in EyeTV Sat>IP Android. streaming over EyeTV and VLC (rtsp://192.168.1.11:554...) is possible but the stream is interrupted frequently.

At the openatv forum i found a equal post but no help:
www.opena.tv/english-section/49418-mini ... 6-3-a.html

i also tried the last arm binary version (1.1.8) from this forum, but the same unterrupted streams.

can you help me?

Thank you!

Sorry for late reply:
can you upload both enigma2 log and minisatip log at the same time ?
It seems that minisatip is seeing continuity errors for some reason on the incoming stream.

I see enigma keep tunning most likely caused by bad signal. Is this happening on all freq or just a limted number of freq?

I tested several freq, the same behavior everywhere. my signal is not perfect but overall ok. The picture is ok on the TV or via webinterface-stream (m3u8 file). But when I get in via minisatip, the stream is always interrupted.
