MediaTV Digital Home (DVB-C/T) + Vu+ Uno (VTi)
« am: Juli 01, 2012, 03:53:47 Nachmittag »
Hi,

I'm going to buy a Sundtek MediaTV Digital Home USB stick for my Vu+ Uno. I have VTi 4.1 on the box. Will the Sundtek stick work well with this combo like the internal DVB-S tuner?

Is the Sundtek stick capable for giving +5V power supply via its antenna connector for the external DVB-T amplifier?

Thank you in advance.:)

Oliver

Our current models do not support outputting 5V for powering an amplifier.


Aside of that the stick Supports VTI 4.1 (VU+ itself is tuning their drivers every now and then to improve their system interface drivers this can also affect the support for external tuners. At this time their drivers from January are okay)

I have the stick.

Unfortunately my VU+ Uno (VTi 4.1) doesn't even find a channel with the Sundtek stick. :-\ Sundtek Control Center and latest driver have been installed. I have a Leadtek Winfast Dongle Gold which easily finds the channels with the Uno. If I search the channels with the Leadtek then change the sticks to Sundtek then it works so I think the stick is fine.

I reinstalled everything from zero and now it's fine. Control center 1.3.0 gives me crash but 1.2.9 r3 is fine. Anyway with latest VTi 4.1 my Leadtek Winfast Dongle Gold works like charm. I didn't even have to install a driver. It automatically detects the stick as a secondary tuner when I plug in. Looks like VTi 4.1 contains drivers for some popular sticks. The funny thing is that it doesn't contain driver for the Sundtek MediaTV Digital Home. ???

Now I feel that it was an unnecessary purchase from my side because the Leadtek dongle can act as a DVB-T tuner without any additional modification or installation. I've noticed only one thing where the Sundtek is better: it shows the signal power and signal quality accurately.

We never mentioned to use the Sundtek Control Center for any box other than Dreambox at this time.

This is the official installation instruction which is supported on all settopboxes:

Thanks, I didn't know that. :-X

As an expert can you tell me a reason to keep the Sundtek stick? I only need as an additional DVB-T tuner for my Vu+ Uno.

Thanks again.

You might look through the forum.

We provide a universal dongle working on most settopboxes also via Network and for most architectures. Aside of that we provide long term Support for our products.
Aside of that it's a DVB-C / DVB-T stick.
If it does not fit your need you can sell it to someone else of course.

Looks like it's too much for me. I can't utilize the potential of the product. Anyway I appreciate your quality of support. Keep it up. ;)
