Sundtek MediaTV Pro (Europe) / CAM / CI
« am: Mai 11, 2014, 08:56:14 Nachmittag »

I currently have a beaglebone black setup with a MediaTV Digital Home DVB-C tuner (details:

It works great but I would like to know if there is a solution for decrypting encrypted channels using a CAM? Specifically for use with a Viaccess card.

I spend a considerable amount of time getting a sundtek tuner to work with tvheadend on a beaglebone black. Sundtek support has been fantastic in helping with this so this post is to share my observations about how to solve some issues I have incountered.
There are also a few remaining issues I hope to get some help on.

Installing tvheadend
We need to install python
opkg install python-distutils
opkg install python-compile
opkg install python-doctest

Then install tvheadend form source since there are no packages available for this platform
git clone git://
cd tvheadend
make install
You will get a number of warnings about missing packages. It seems to work anyway though...

The first time you launch Tvheadend you will want to use the command:
/usr/local/bin/tvheadend -C
To launch Tvheadend after that simply use the command without the -C argument:

To make it work you need to make a user
groupadd tvheadend
useradd -g tvheadend -G video -m tvheadend

Then we need a startup script to make it start at boot
Create file named /etc/init.d/tvheadend
and copy the following


# Required-Start:    $local_fs $remote_fs mediasrv


case "$1" in
    echo "Starting tvheadend"
    start-stop-daemon --start --user ${TVHUSER} --exec ${TVHBIN} -- \
                -u ${TVHUSER} -g ${TVHGROUP} -f -C
    echo "Stopping tvheadend"
    start-stop-daemon --stop --quiet --name ${TVHNAME} --signal 2
    echo "Restarting tvheadend"

    start-stop-daemon --stop --quiet --name ${TVHNAME} --signal 2

    start-stop-daemon --start --user ${TVHUSER} --exec ${TVHBIN} -- \
                -u ${TVHUSER} -g ${TVHGROUP} -f -C

    echo "Usage: tvheadend {start|stop|restart}"
    exit 1
exit 0

Set the permissions to make it runnable:
chmod 755 /etc/init.d/tvheadend
Enable start during boot process
update-rc.d tvheadend defaults
Finally start it manually so we can configure it:
/etc/init.d/tvheadend start

Setting up the driver
Before you can do anything you need to install the drivers for the tuner,4.0.html
Now you can setup the channels in tvheadend

Avoid high CPU usage
Under configuration --> DVB Inputs --> TV adapters find your adapter and set "Full Mux RX mode" to ON.
This should lower CPU usage.

One problem with the BBB is that it lowers the clock frequency to lower power usage. However that means that there is not enough power to run the tuner when the clock frequency is set low.
This can be fixed by making the BBB change the frequency less frequently by setting:
cpufreq-set -g conservative
Current settings can be seen by running:

Unfortunately this is reset 10 min after reboot by a script. So we need to change that.
In "/lib/systemd/system/cpu-ondemand.service" change ondemand to conservative

Turning the log off can help prevent CPU spikes.
Create or modify the file "/etc/sundtek.conf" and add.

EDIT: Updated the way to set the CPU governor so that it doesn't reset.
EDIT2: Added info about turning off the log.
