I'm already looking around for another "box" setup... :)

Thanks again.

Thanks for the quick reply.

Yeah, I kind of guessed that the box would not be up to snuff...

Hm, I don't recall there being an acceleration option in the Control Center. I have, however, enabled the vtuner_acceleration option in the config file. I did not see any noticable improvement though :(.

About the logging, what can I expect to find there?

Another detail I forgot to mention. When the picture freezes the tuner is spitting out data just fine, I can start a recording (during the freeze!) and the recorded clip is fine. So it seems the problem is only related to displaying the picture. Which is kind of weird.

But anyway, the box is end of life and supports only 720p (and 1080i, but that's crap), so it's only a matter of time before it will be replaced anyway...

Hi all, first post here!

I've installed a Sundtek USB DVB-S2 tuner to my DM (it's OpenPLi)
It works, but not as nice as I'd like.

I have a few annoyances I'd like to ask you peeps about:

1. The box does not boot completely by itself. It appears that /usr/sundtek/ start_s2 never complets and blocks the boot sequence. If I kill that process it completes the start up (and I have to run the script afterwards, or run Sundtek Control Center). I've not dug into it to determine why this script never finishes.

2. Switching channels takes about 4-6 seconds. Sometimes even the spinning gears appear, if only for a short while.

3. Watching HD channels (both 720p and 1080p) lags the box horribly. Current avg.load is ~2.8, which to my understanding is quite a lot. It might be memory related, but I can also see that the mediasrv process uses about 50% CPU.
Sometimes event the picture can freeze up, indefinitely (until channel switch).

What are other peoples experience using the Sundtek tuner on a dreambox?
