Combination NAS/settopbox/ possible to switch off NAS temporarily?
« am: August 10, 2014, 12:06:14 Nachmittag »
Hallo,

Since i switch off hibernation in Synology,during watching tv, streaming DVB-C to Dreambox settopbox works totally fine. (no hick ups any more as it occured during Hibernation use)

As i am using the NAS exclusively for this purpose i wonder what happens if i would turn off the Synology directly after the Dreambox loaded the DVB-C tuner.
-would system crash immediately due to that?
-or would it be possible to turn off and start the NAS again when DVB-C channels are needed in fact only in the evening?

I think you need to try, there's a feature netrecoverymode I'm just not sure if it is set up automatically on the settopbox.
This feature will automatically reconnect to the server once it is available again.

When using the tuner while the server is gone you will get tuning failed on the Dreambox
Failure is a good thing! I'll fix it

Thank you very much for the quick reply!
You were right: when the server is switched off, the dreambox does not hang it self and shows "tunen fehlgeschlagen" in case a DVB-C is chosen.

But i noticed that when the NAS is switched on again, the DVB-C channels are not shown (tunen fehlgeschlagen)though Sundtek-tuner is visible in tuner configuration.
During command "start tuner=blue button" the settopbox does not not react anymore on any r/c command.
Only a restart of the box had visible channels as result.

Have i misunderstood something?

If the server is enabled and has the same IP Address as before it should just work (that is what we tested here - and how we implemented it).

Did your NAS get a different IP Address?

On the console /opt/bin/mediaclient --scan-network should just show up the same information as before you restarted the NAS.

But also be sure that the version on the server and the NAS is about the same.

Thanx again, great.
No, the IP of the NAS is a fixed one and ends up with......30

The SSC of the Dreambox shows ........30.0 (as before)

Would you please tell me how i can check driver version of the NAS?
In case of driver updates (shown in the SSC) until now i updated the settopbox first and after that i removed Sundtek-Package in the Synology and reinstalled it .
So the driver in NAS and Dreambox should be the same or not?

re-installing the driver on the NAS will install the latest driver on it yes.

Did you try to switch the channels a couple of times after the server came back?

Is it FreeTV or PayTV related?

It works here with a DM800HD SE

Good evening,

I just tried again and this time i succeeded!
I followed the same procedure, as described yesterday, during an update last night so the last driver cannot be the reason why.
The only different procedure was that i switched the settopbox to standby first and after that i switched on the NAS.

Who cares, it seems to work now and i am happy...

Thank you for the support!

I am afraid, it is me again.
Sorry but i already encountered an unexpected problem.
Status Dreambox: standby     status: NAS: off
Last nite: all DVB-C were visible before the Synology was switched off.

Now, only a few minutes ago, i first switched on the NAS and when it was running, i switched on the Dream:  no DVB-C channels to be seen "no data on transponder"

It is not a tragedy but do you happen to have a clue?

edit: sorry: i forgot to turn on the amplifier!!!!!!
Could you recommend a suitable shrink for me instead?

heh so still seems to work okay for you.

We are currently working on a Webstreaming and Videorecorder Server for the NAS

Hallo,

A minor -unexpected- problem seems to occur since i bought a second (grey) Sundtek stick last week.
This stick works fine but only when NAS is running before Dreambox is getting started. from deep standby)
During Dmm's starting up procedure LED's of both sticks light up for some time and both tuners can be used for either live tv or recording.

But...when the settopbox is already running and the NAS is being started after that at any moment (that is what this topic is about) only the LED of the first tuner lights up when a DVB-C channel is chosen.
When a reservation was made, the second tuner will only record one or two minutes and the LED does not light up at all!
Tuner configuration has been set up properly for the use of these two tuners.

As i said before, this is a minor problem when the NAS is running continuously but as i learned from you switching off temporarily should be possible....

Do you might have a solution?
Thanx

Sundtek

I think that (shutting down the server) mechanism is not made for 2 devices via network at the moment. There's some bigger work going on for network streaming support, I'll put it onto the list for checking it once we have some time for it.

The gray tuner is already EOL (end of lifetime), although we will carry on support for it.
