FEC 8/9
« am: Juni 05, 2024, 05:19:39 Nachmittag »
Hi,

Do the Sundtek drivers support an FEC of 8/9? It is needed for this multiplex. I'm struggling to tune it, and when using -F 8/9 with mediaclient it says error the FEC value.

This is my device in case it helps:

**** List of Media Hardware Devices ****
device 0: [             Dual S2]  DVB-S/S2, REMOTE-CONTROL, DVB-S/S2
  [INFO]:
     STATUS: ACTIVE
  [BUS]:
     ID: 1-1.2
  [SERIAL]:
     ID: U220618155800
  [DVB-S/S2]:
     FESTATUS: ACTIVE
     LNBVOLTAGE: ENABLED
     LNBSUPPLY: USBPOWER
     LNBSTATUS: OK
     FRONTEND: /dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0
     DVR: /dev/dvb/adapter0/dvr0
     DMX: /dev/dvb/adapter0/demux0
  [REMOTECONTROL]:
     INPUT0: /dev/mediainput0
  [DVB-S/S2]:
     FESTATUS: ACTIVE
     FRONTEND: /dev/dvb/adapter1/frontend0
     DVR: /dev/dvb/adapter1/dvr0
     DMX: /dev/dvb/adapter1/demux0


Many thanks,
Andrew

The driver for this device doesn't use the FEC information submitted by the user, you can just write anything there.

The issue lies within mediaclient itself, FEC 8/9 is just not parsed there and that gives you the error; I think since 2014 we do not have any tuner which uses the FEC user information from the user. The tuner will auto-detect the FEC parameters for the given transponder.
For testing with mediaclient you can just pass any FEC value...

Thanks for the information. You're right, I can tune ok to this channel. I think my problem is an issue with MythTV or Minisatip, not the Sundtek device. I got confused by the error message when trying to tune myself.

Thanks,
Andrew

I will update this, thanks for reporting it. It's more a "optical" issue rather than a "functional" one.
