Ok...
Is it wise to run the DVB_C_Tuner_starten.sh?
Or can I leave it this way with the Sundtek.conf file?

DVB_C_Tuner_autostart.sh

only means to autostart the tuner after the reboot

DVB_C_Tuner_starten.sh

means immediately start E2 with DVB-C tuner support

In case you started the first script only it's understandable that nothing happened since it just deploys the autostart scripts

first of all you need to ensure that the driver is started automatically when you reboot your settopbox

-> you already did this by running DVB_C_Tuner_autostart.sh

The configurationfile (sundtek.conf) is usually only useful for setups which use 2 USB tuners, but it can also be used for single tuners.
The configurationfile has a higher priority than the *_starten.sh scripts.

In the background both things, the configfile or the scripts do the same (the scripts DVB_*_starten.sh is usually easier for customers)

So either way is correct, the configfile is just more difficult for the enduser.

As I said, everything is working now.
But there is one fault with the Sundtek in combination with OpenPli. I can switch from DVB-T to DVB-C and back to DVB-T whithout any problems. But if I want to go back to DVB-C once more, it stops working. Only DVB-T will work from then on. The Sundtek doesn't do anything anymore, and says it has 0% signal.

Only a powercycle will resolve that issue, untill you switch from DVB-T to DVB-C for the second time. I guess it's a driver problem. I hope you can reproduce this problem, and resolve this. (it's a common problem with Sundtek if you search the internet)

DVB-T should be DVB-S?
The problem is occurring when switching between DVB-S and DVB-C  :)
I started a new topic: http://support.sundtek.com/index.php/topic,844.0.html because this problem is with several types of E2 boxes.

Hi,

Here is my problem:

I installed properly the dongle with the right script as explained in the beginning of this topic. Everything went fine but it doesn't want to work...

- In the end of the installation, if i chose the dvb-c start-script, the dreambox freezes and it's impossible to reboot it but manually. So, I don't have choice but to chose the "autostart-script". There is no problem. After a reboot, the Dreambox sees the device and i can enter the menu to set it up. BUT--->

-> If I go in the menu to scan services, I get this failure : "ERREUR - échec lors de l'analyse (error starting..."
-> I read that I shouldn't do an automatic scan but I did it previously (some months ago) and I worked fine. Anyway, I decide to scan manually but once again, it doesn't work and I have to reboot the Dreambox manually one more time.

I'm totally stacked with that problem. I can't get any channel. Would anybody help me ?  :'(

we massively updated the drivers recently, however we need to do some fine-tuning still

Advantages are:
* faster zapping
* better stability
* overall better to improve for us

Disadvantage for the short term:
* we need to check the driver with all the STB systems again
* for short term some compatibility problems can arise of course.

We updated the driver for Merlin, we also tested LT now and it also works?

However we tested it with a DM800SE, in case you still have an issue with it please contact us via chat (Skype - sundtek) or http://chat.sundtek.de (we prefer Skype Chat)

Hi Markus,

It has been a while ago, but now I've purchased a second adapter. I've followed the instructions, and my VU+Duo sees the 2 adapters, very good! But...
When I reboot, I only see one tuner, and have to do the lines:
/opt/bin/mediaclient --enabledreambox=/dev/dvb/adapter1/frontend0
/opt/bin/mediaclient --enabledreambox=/dev/dvb/adapter2/frontend0

Again, manually.
How do I force this will happen automatically every reboot?

For the dreambox please use the "sundtek control center" Plugin, it should be available in the feed.
