MacOSX Installation

We've finally ported the driver and our Multimediastack to MacOSX, our software provides the full LinuxDVB and Video4Linux API on MacOSX.
Our driver can be used to watch DVB-T, DVB-C and DVB-S/S2 or listen to FM Radio with mplayer.
With some smaller mplayer modifications it should also be possible to receive Analog TV, S-Video and Composite.

This driver also provides support for Network streaming, it is possible to use MacOSX as a server for a Dreambox, VU+ or another Linux based system, Linux can also be used as a server for MacOSX. The device looks like if it would be attached locally even though it's connected to a remote host via the network.

Network suppport

Further details and download link will be released soon.

It's a little bit chaotic right now but we started to release Mac drivers, first only binary files, in a few days DMG files and more howtos.

http://www.sundtek.de/media/sundtek_driver_mac_110128.2133.tar.gz

(32bit release for now, 64bit and DMG is upcoming).

How to use mplayer or VLC with it will be documented soon.

We'll soon also release a Windows Link software to be able to use the tuner via network.

Please note most of the Linuxfeatures also work with MacOSX!

GREAT! It seems a bit basic right now, but waiting for the .dmg or some more info on how to make it running, both executables are working, although I have no idea on how to launch the mediasrv when the stick is plugged or what to preload in order for the players to work, but it looks that finally we are going to get the Gold version :-D

Thanks!

Our engineering is working on a player now, especially on a network client for Linux / Mac which can also be used with the iPad.

Our engineering just received an iPad for testing, we're fully working on MacOSX now.

A new driver will be available soon we decreased the CPU load by around 50% on OSX.

Within the next few versions streaming to iPad will be available.

What does iOS (on the iPad) have to do with OSX ?? I mean, I hope to get a driver/player to play locally in my MacBook Pro.

Well, it seems that we are getting support for Solaris sooner than for MacOSX, although when I bought the Gold version two years ago it was supposed to have MacOSX support in the works. In fact in the post

http://support.sundtek.de/index.php/topic,4.0.html

dating from [Juli 15, 2009, 10:49:38 am] you can read

* Apple (Sundtek MediaTV Gold/will be released soon, mediaclient commands will work, although the Apple support comes with an extra Mac based installer and extra TV application)

One thing I've learned for sure, don't trust vendors, even the one coming from the open source world. I hope you keep improving your drivers (even Duke Nukem forever was finally released), but as others have stated before me, real open source is the only way. Good bye and regards.

We follow a certain strategy, we deliver a driver which provides the same interface on all operating systems. Meaning basically mplayer or other Applications can be used with it just about everywhere.

Additional on that we're working on our player for OSX, and yes we are late but it will come up within the next few months.
Just because we haven't released another driver for OSX does not mean we aren't working on it. The next update will just be available with a DMG image and the latest changes which are also available for all other systems.

Well, it seems that the english forum's are a bit out of date, I have bookmarked directly the Sundtek Pro Europe subforum, but today I take a look at the German version, and found this:

http://support.sundtek.com/index.php/topic,544.0.html

and although I was not able to make MPlayer working with it, it works really great with VLC. It seems that at the end we really DO HAVE a multiplatform DVB tuner. Great work, really, GREAT WORK!

In the last post of the linked forum you say that there is "mplayer build available on request"?? I cannot speak German, and I'm using google translate, so maybe it is just wishfull translation :-D If you have in fact that build available, I would be really happy to test it.

Finally it has been a looong time, but the wait is over, BIG THANKS!
