Help with monobloc LNB (Hotbird/Astra)
« am: November 11, 2013, 11:24:24 Nachmittag »

I'm have difficulties tuning to Astra 19.2 with the SkyTV Ultimate USB.

This works fine (13.0E):

~$ mediaclient -d /dev/dvb/adapter1/frontend0 -m DVBS -f 11137000 -S 27500000 -V H -E 3/4 -M QPSK
Using device: /dev/dvb/adapter1/frontend0
Setting DVB-S/S2 tune Parameters
using HI/LO Band frequency: 11137000
Modulation: QPSK (DVB-S)
Symbolrate: 27500000
Voltage: 18 Volt (Horizontal)
FEC: 3/4
Tone OFF
Frequency: 1387000
Syntax OK
Checking for lock:

How can I switch to 19.2E?
I have tried --secmini=A/B but it seems to have no effect.
mediaclient --list-diseqc gives mediaclient: unrecognized option '--list-diseqc'

mediaclient --build and mediasrv --build both give
Build date: 2013-11-06 14:42:40

Can you help?

Well it depends on your switch. Does it support modulated burst tone / Sec Mini?

/opt/bin/mediaclient --secmini=A -d /dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0

I think you might need to take care about the standby feature which kicks in after 15 seconds it might reset the previous settings on the LNB.

you can send manual Diseqc commands

/opt/bin/mediaclient --diseqc="AA BB CC DD" -d /dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0

where AA BB CC DD is the Diseqc Command in HEX
Failure is a good thing! I'll fix it
