Saturday, November 9, 2013

Well v4l-updatelee and updateDVB are coming along quite well, new features added everyday.

Here's a screen shot of updateDVB

Hopefully I'll have a few more ATSC cards working in the next while, Ive got a few cheap ones on order. QAM is still on the list as well.

updateDVB and my V4L media tree

updateDVB (the new stv090x-scan) it doing pretty good, works well with non stv0900/stv0903 tuners, no spectrumscan or blindscan, but tuning and analysis of the signal works.

You can find all my projects source on my bitbucket page

Let me know how its working out for you and if you have any idea's on where the project should go.

stv090x-scan and s2-liplianin-v37-udl are now in archive status and wont be maintained any longer.

TBS 6925 now open source

No more precompiled libraries nor the TBS v3.0 tree. You can now use a much more current tree (Thanks Igor Liplianin) and make changes you wish without those pesky precompiled lib's getting in the way. This patch has all the Prof 7301 and 7500 changes plus the spectrum scan and IQ plot changes too.

hg clone
cd s2-liplianin-v37-udl
make menuconfig
sudo make rmmod
sudo make rminstall
sudo make install
#restart your computer or reload your dvb modules

Test and report back, Thanks

stv0900-scan out of beta

stv0900-scan is out of beta, its still a big work in progress but it has enough features that work that I think we can take it out of beta.

See anything not working let me know and I'll do my best to get it working. Take notice the new patch too, it implements the NOTUNE search_algo as well so that when your looping the spectrum_scan the card isnt also trying to lock a moving signal.

My demux application

updated the demux app, you now can use the -mode switch

-mode dvr            (defailt) to send to /dev/dvb/adapter0/dvr0 so vlc or mplayer can view
-mode decoder     to send to /dev/dvb/adapter0/video0 if your card has a deccoder
-mode file            to send it to a file, default is test.ts in the current folder

to use the dvr mode

in one window tune the tp

tune-s2 4000 H 30000 -2 -lnb CBAND

in another run demux

demux -pids 0x00 0x30 0x31 0x32 0x34

in another open dvr0 with mplayer or vlc

mplayer /dev/dvb/adapter0/dvr0

and enjoy.

or if youve got a stv0900/stv0903 chipset device you can use my stv090x-scan app

stv090x-scan BETA

Ok so here is the new beta, you can find it on my Google Drive, click download on the right.

Its still a big work in progress, nothing is threaded so no multitasking here boys. Not yet anyhow, its coming later.

Enter your params, press update to refresh, then click anywhere on the plot to have the app attempt to tune the tp. If it can another dialog opens with basic info about the tp including pids.

If you want using ctrl-click choose


and press vlc and it will open and you can view streamed mux.

If your using a Prof 7301 use the beta patch and report back to me how its working for you. I think I fixed it, but not sure.

Once this gets a little more stable I'll also fork off a version that doesnt have the scan feature for all you non stv0900/stv0903 users.
