#10997 closed Patch - Bug Fix (fixed)

Don't send Diseqc if tuning to the same transponder

Reported by: warpme@… Owned by: Karl Egly
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.28
Component: MythTV - DVB Version: Master Head
Severity: medium Keywords: Unicable DVB-S
Cc: Ticket locked: no


Some DVB demodulators (i.e. Montage m88ds3103) can loose LOCK when DVB app is sending Diseqc commands and consecutive tune call with re_tune=0. Issue is manifesting in MythTV when user is asking for DVB-S/S2 channel on already tuned multiplex. In such case MythTV can't get/keep lock on some multiplexes. Looking on dvbchannel.cpp:733 it seems current code can skip fe tuning if requested mplex is the same, but Diseqc commands are still sent. Attached patch turns-off sending Diseqc commands when tune is to already tuned mplex (I believe this should be by design). This patch might be especially relevant to Unicable systems as in Unicable Diseqc commands are directly impacting demodulator PLL sync state (they are controlling UB LO on Unicable LNB).

note to self, apply after #9726 due to:

// retrieve scr intermediate frequency 
DiSEqCDevSCR *scr = diseqc_tree->FindSCR(diseqc_settings); 
if (lnb && scr) 
    intermediate_freq = scr->GetIntermediateFrequency(intermediate_freq);
