Sundtek and Nova-T at the same time
« am: Juni 06, 2012, 02:20:32 Nachmittag »
My primary stick is Nova-T (tuner C) and today i installed sundtek stick. It only shows as tuner D when i put this line in sundtek.conf: vtuner_skip0=vtuner0

Usb stick is then detected as tuner D but when i zap to random dvb-c channel, it wants to use tuner C which is DVB-T. Basically its a mess. Anyone has a clue what to do here?

I am also attaching two dmesg files. Dmesg1 was made when only nova-t was installed. Dmesg2 was made when both sticks were installed.

I also tested same situation on ET-5000. Same image, same sticks (nova-t and sundtek) and everything works as expected. I assume there must be something wrong with vuduo driver+sundtek drivers.

In the past i already tested two usb dvb-t sticks (nova-t and volar-hd) and they worked together without any problems. But it was old kernel back then. Now its newer one.

I also put clean latest pli image on VU+DUO and same problem as described in first post.

A simple way might be to re-create the virtual tuner interface nodes. That would be a workaround for a bug of the vu+ broadcom modules.

If possible contact us again via Skype.

You might be able to do that by running:
Zitat
mv /dev/misc/vtuner1 /dev/misc/vtuner3
mv /dev/misc/vtuner0 /dev/misc/vtuner1
mv /dev/misc/vtuner3 /dev/misc/vtuner0

In order to make that work you might add it to the second line of sun_dvb.sh in /usr/sundtek

The problem is probably the slot allocation in the VU+ broadcom module.

I tried your suggestion but it doesnt work. Tuner C (Sundtek) works OK, but when i use tuner D (Nova-T), picture is black. Receiver doesnt use tuner D. When i check which tuners are present under Enigma2 Information, i can see both tuners.

What to do now?

Try to put those commands into /usr/sundtek/sun_dvb.sh (paste it after the first line of this script)

This is first thing i did! *.sh file looks like this:

#!/bin/sh
mv /dev/misc/vtuner1 /dev/misc/vtuner3
mv /dev/misc/vtuner0 /dev/misc/vtuner1
mv /dev/misc/vtuner3 /dev/misc/vtuner0
if [ -f /usr/sundtek/mediasrv ]; then
  DRIVERPATH=/usr/sundtek
......

Pieterg is looking into it to skip vtuner0 if it's already in use as this is the main issue actually. Unfortunately we're a little bit busy here for this week so further support for this has to be postponed until the beginning of next week.

By the way try moving the files back at the end of sun_dvb.sh

Tuner doesnt work at all with these lines at the end. I tried to put them before and after "exit 0" line!

The explanation is:

The VU+ System has an internal slot mechanism

1
2

actually at the beginning when our driver starts up no change is needed it should take 1 and no vtuner_skip should be used from your side.
After the registration (at the end of the script), the node /dev/misc/vtuner0 should be swapped with /dev/misc/vtuner1

OpenPLi will by default allocate vtuner0 for the first tuner, the internal VU+ slot mechanism will still think that the first allocated tuner will be Number 1. While OpenPLI will think the other way around.

New drivers are out and they apperantly improved vtuner performance. Maybe they fixed this issue?
