Vu + DUO support
« am: Juni 27, 2010, 02:09:48 Nachmittag »
Hallo,

Just realised that this stick has support for Dm800 receiver (MIPS). Would it be posibel or is there any plan to add support for Vu + DUO receiver (also enigma 2 based)?

This receiver popularity is growing very fast, and already got compatibility with other USB sticks (DVB-T),but no DVB-C.

It uses kernel 2.6.18, therfore it shall be supported but when I tried to install the driver I got the following message: checking system... testing libc - FAILED (required libc version >= 2.4, got version: 2.3.90)
If any info is requried, pelase do not hesitate to contac me.

Best regards,

Sundtek

it should not be a big issue, please contact us via skype (sundtek) for further instruction.
Some assistance from your side might be required - eg. providing remote access to your VU - DUO for testing the driver.

The safety check didn't allow to install the driver (it checks the libc version as indicated in the error message). The used libc version is older than the version which the driver was built against. This can be overridden but has should be tested before it can be enabled by default.

DVB-T works, DVB-C itself works too with our 3rd party commandline tools but the VU+ vtuner Interface does not support it so Enigma won't recognize DVB-C directly yet
We tried to contact VU+ and there was no response.

Anyway since we are working on a loopback device we can translate DVB-C to DVB-T in future so it should be possible to get it work after this loopback module is finished it's just a matter of time.

According to a VU+ customer DVB-C is about to work, although VU+ is still fixing up their DVB-C interface.

Message from the customer:

DVB-C working on vu duo with their latest drivers!
I think that there may be some audio sync probelm, and also when initicialization or when the stick cames from standby, it gives an error prior to start working.

I have test on pli image and works nice:

http://www.pli-images.org/forum/viewthread.php?forum_id=65&thread_id=14640

You could find also a ipk valid for the pli image that installs it.

As per my uderstanding it shall work on any image that contains the drivers released by VU duo on 1308, that solved VU vtuner issues. However due to the OE change of original image, to make it work on original 5.1 or images based on new OE, the usbkhelper-vuplus.ko shall be recompiled to the new gcc 4.4.3 used by new OE.This shall not be an issue as it is open soruce: http://www.sundtek.de/support/khelper.tar.gz

Hope it is useful!

Minnor issues I found:

+ Automatic scan works on DVB-T mode but not able to make it work on DBV-C
+ Sometimes I think that audio sync problem could happen (small delay)

However in principle it works great.

Ps. Due to file size limitations I cannot upload the files to the post. If posible maybe the administrator could upload them.

did find this

Great news on sundtek lip sync probs from vu+

    hi all

    contacted sundtek again last night for update on the lip sync issue i reported to them and they forwarded me the email they got back this morning from vu+ support.

    "Dear all,

    New driver, to be released by the mid of this month,

    will resolve all the problems related with lipsync.

    Moreover, some minor bugs will be also fixed at that version.

    Thanks and best regards "


    am delighted for one as was only issue i have with my vu+. so fingers crossed that vu+/sundtek keep to their word.

Seems like you started the network driver instead of the local one.

Zitat

DVB_C_netTuner_autostart.sh  ... auto network tuner (you can use the DVB-C tuner from a remote PC)
DVB_C_netTuner_starten.sh    ... start network tuner (you can use the DVB-C tuner from a remote PC)
DVB_T_Tuner_autostart.sh     ... autostart local DVB-T tuner
DVB_T_Tuner_starten.sh       ... start local DVB-T tuner
DVB_C_Tuner_autostart.sh     ... autostart local DVB-C tuner
DVB_C_Tuner_starten.sh       ... start local DVB-C tuner
DVB_S2_Tuner_autostart.sh    ... autostart local DVB-S2 tuner
DVB_S2_Tuner_starten.sh      ... start local DVB-S2 tuner
DVB_Tuner_kein_autostart.sh  ... disable autostart of local DVB tuner
DVB_Tuner_Info.sh            ... print tuner info
DVB_Tuner_stop.sh            ... stop DVB tuner support
sun_dvb.sh

Use DVB_C_Tuner_starten if you want to use it locally.
