Titel: Synology DS1812+, with TvHeadend, Oscam and Sundtek MediaTV Pro

Hi,

So I don't know if this is a problem with the sundtek device or something else.

But, I've managed to get radio from the sundtek via. this setup on my xbmc.

So technically I have signal and should also be able to see un-encrypted tv channels am I right?

Well, my tv subscription is with Get Kabel (DVB-C), in Norway.

And as far as I can see on tvheadend their information channel is not encrypted.

But all I get is a black screen telling me it's: Buffering .. 0%

(I'm sorry if i'm in the wrong place here, i just don't have anywhere else to turn.)

So I managed to get the info channel and NRK1.

But, something didn't communicate in tvheadend with something called cwc to oscam.

So I tried re-installing both oscam and tvheadend.

Now, the sundtek adapter in tvheadend won't show up again.

I've tried a restart to, but nothing shows up. Any advice/help here?

Installing the driver again solved this issue, but how do i do a manual scan for every frequency.

There's still some channels that doesn't get service, i think their from the wrong mux in my area.

How do i scan?

There is a Synology Installer available now:
http://sundtek.de/synology

We do not recommend to use the old method, the new one allows you to install / start / stop the driver via the web interface.
All Synology Models which support DSM version 4 and later are supported

For scanning you can just pick any cable provider if you cannot find your one in the list, only one channel has to match the rest will be derived from the frequency list which your provider submits within every transponder.

There's another update pending to support Blindscan for DVB-C, this should help to find all channels quickly by using a special hardware scan (which the new devices support)

Very interesting!
Sundtek package is available indeed in Community section of DSM now.

Would you be as kind to give some more information as to the use of this specific package?
As you may know, my son installed recently TVheadend and after configuring that package he added Sundtek-driver using SSH.
Streaming to our Dreambox DM7020 HD is rather succesful, except from minor problems when heaving down/up loading with a PC in the network.

What do you suggest?
Installing through the new method?
If so, package TVheadend already installed on the Synology is overwritten?

Maybe i should wait for your howto to be expected?
Sorry for my inpatience if such is the case!

Cool, you guys are just awesome.

I actually got things working for a while on DSM4.0.

But the I just updated to DSM5.0 because off the security issues, and it all just went fubar from there.

Stuttering, flickering etc.

Added the package now, installed and rebooted.

Guess i'll get to test this out tomorrow then :)

Unfortunatley, everything is the same.. what do i do?
Do i have to uninstall everything and start over?


Titel: Re:Synology DS1812+, with TvHeadend, Oscam and Sundtek MediaTV Pro
Beitrag von: Sundtek am April 04, 2014, 09:44:28 am
If you can see the adapter in the tvheadend configuration your setup would be correct already.
Do you see the adapter in the web menu?

Otherwise yes, it should be better to start over remove the old driver (./sundtek_netinst.sh -u) and install it via web interface.

Beitrag von: Leoh28 am April 04, 2014, 11:25:56 am
I did remove it with -u now.

I can see the adapter in Tvheadend like always.

And everything seems ok. But now when i try to stream from an xbmc client I get this:
Unable to use "Sundtek DVB-C (III)/Get.: 386,000 kHz/TV2 HD" -- No hardware present

Not even an image or sound.

I'm at the office now, so I don't have the chance to "re-plug" the Sundtek, I have tried a restart of the Synology but at no avail.

I will try to re-plug when I get home, anything else I can try?

I went home during lunch now..

The Sundtek didn't even have a blue light on.

Unplugged the device and uninstalled both tvheadend and the sundtek.

Installed tvheadend, stopped it.
Installed the sundtek driver via. webgui
plugged in the sundtek.

I now have a blue light again. and the stream works (ish)..

Still flickering, and reports of Continuity errors?

Sundtek DVB-C (III)/386,000 kHz/TV2 HD: H264 @ #1634: Continuity counter error, 126 duplicate log lines suppressed

Any advice will be much appreciated, thanks.

Do you need any logs or something?

Just let me know where to find them and i will post..

Beitrag von: Leoh28 am April 05, 2014, 12:06:15 pm
The blue light eventually just doesn't light up anymore with the package activated in webgui on the Synology unfortunately.

That package certainly does not work for my model, it seems.

I'm trying the "old way" again now as i'm typing here, as that seemed to work at least before the DSM upgrade.

To trace my steps i now have bootstrapped my ds1812+, again. I believe some of that went away during upgrade.
http://forum.synology.com/wiki/index.php/Overview_on_modifying_the_Synology_Server,_bootstrap,_ipkg_etc#How_to_install_ipkg

Installed this opt-ware package.
$ ipkg install optware-devel
(Seems that tvheadend needs what's inside those packages somehow.)

Installed the tvheadend package (3.4.27-6) from synocommunity.
http://www.synocommunity.com/

Installed sundtek "the old way":
$ cd /tmp
$ wget http://www.sundtek.de/media/sundtek_netinst.sh
$ chmod 777 sundtek_netinst.sh
$ ./sundtek_netinst.sh

Plugged the sundtek usb tuner in, after 7 secs or so it lights up.

Put the cwc / newcamd info in from OSCAM.

Enabled Sundtek DVB-C (III) and only activated:
- Monitor signal quality
- Full mux reception On

Put in 3 off the mux'es in manually that I got from the cable company.

Pushed the "Map DVB services to channels...", button.

"Serviceprobe" started testing those channels..

So far, so good.. Only have to wait until the serviceprobe has gone through all the channels now..

Testing from XBMC, the exact same thing  :'(
Sundtek DVB-C (III)/482,000 kHz/TV Norge HD: H264 @ #1651: Continuity counter error, 76 duplicate log lines suppressed

With stuttering and flickering...

For testing purposes I now have some sdtv channels here also, I don't use those but it should be noted that those work "perfectly"..

So is this a problem only related to the HD channels?
(Which off course is the only channels I intend to use..)

I really need help from you guys.

I have two more tuners on the way and it's essential that my HD channels are working.

I feel like I've tried everything and can only conclude with this being incompatible drivers with the Synology DSM5. And that's out of my hands.

The win8 driver is available, we just released it today (after fixing some win7 compatibility issues after porting it to win8).

Ok, not exactly sure how to set this up in windows with oscam and so on.
But do you have a link? Could only find windows 7 driver on your site.

Sorry with Oscam we cannot help you since there's no license available for the software decrypting functionality (PayTV providers are looking close at manufacturers to not support those things).

So I haven't tested out the windows drivers jet.

I installed windows media center and that's how far I got with that before I had to go to my cabin with the family.

However, I did install the latest tvheadend on a laptop with ubuntu on it. The same continuity errors appeared with flickering and so on there also.

Im starting to suspect this is the one tuner just beeing faulty. I feel like I've ruled everything else out at this point.

It will be interesting to see if the other two tuners works out of the box, I certainly hope so. Or I must've messed up pretty bad somewhere along the line for sure.

Will keep in touch when they arrive after the holidays, happy easter everyone  :D

It seems I can't let this go, I found the latest tvheadend repository for synology here.
http://syno.dierkse.nl/

HTS Tvheadend 3.9.542

Installs alright after i uninstall the previous package of tvheadend but the sundtek tuner doesn't show up in tvheadend in the newest version.
Even tried to uninstall and installing the sundtek driver to no avail.
Even tried the old way that now tells me to use the synology web installer.

./sundtek_netinst.sh
Busybox installation

Please use the synology web-installer

http://sundtek.de/synology

I'm going to need the newer version of tvheadend anyways, it handles merging of channels and what-not much better.
(Speaking from experience on ubuntu, everything just fixed itself by pushing map channels there.)

Hope you guys could look into this, my synology ds1812+ is at your disposal if needed for testing purposes.
(It seems to me that hdhomerun works with this already, the drivers is added in that repository also. But I'd prefer to use your tuners, if you get them working with the latest tvheadend and synology.)

Are you sure the tuner is properly attached? We tested the Synology installer here and did not see any issues with it. At least the tuner should be detected without any problem with tvheadend.

Contact us via skype (sundtek) again if you would like us to doublecheck directly on your NAS.

We just want to avoid that anyone will use the netinstaller on those NAS Systems since the packages we created just integrate the drivers into the existing application infrastructure of those NAS systems. Basically the native package will use the netinstaller with some extra parameters.

Beitrag von: Leoh28 am April 21, 2014, 12:59:06 pm
Yes, the tuner is properly attatched.

I will contact you on skype later today or tomorrow when easter is over.

What is the version of tvheadend you've tried? It does show up in version 3.4.

But im talking about 3.9.542, have you tried that? Nothing shows up under tv adapters there.
(The earlier counter continuity errors are now gone, on that version setup with a really old laptop and ubuntu on it.)


Titel: Re:Synology DS1812+, with TvHeadend, Oscam and Sundtek MediaTV Pro
Beitrag von: Sundtek am April 21, 2014, 01:06:20 pm
Ah, 3.9.542 might still need some adaption. Ok so the continuity errors are not really related to us.

You can contact us today those small things we can do any time.

Hello,

I install Sundtek DVB-C on my Synology nas.
I put network enabled and my dreambox can connect it and this works okay.

Now I install TVheadend but it does not see the DVB-C tuner.
I stopped the tuner, start it again no success.

Do I need to switch off network enable?
And can I still use my dreambox to connect true it or what good be the reason that TVheadend does not see the DVB-C stick.

I did not reboot the NAS yet.

Thanks for your advice.

Regards,
Michel

you need to reinstall the driver after you installed tvheadend.

1. Intall tvheadend
2. install the driver (there are some bad tvheadend packages out there, if you install the driver afterwards the driver installer will try to fix those packages).

then have a look at tvheadend. If you still have problems let us know.
