#4133 closed patch (fixed)

Fix Tone switching, add voltage and mini DiSEqC switch types

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: danielk
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.22
Component: dvb Version: head
Severity: low Keywords: tone switch
Cc: Ticket locked: no

Description

Attached is a simple patch that changes the tone switching to use the FE_SET_TONE ioctl as opposed to the FE_DISEQC_SEND_BURST ioctl. I can't speak for whether or not FE_DISEQC_SEND_BURST worked with some devices, but it did not work with my starbox II. I've tested tone switching successfully with this patch, and another person has tested voltage. I don't have the hardware to test mini DiSEqC, so I can't speak for that.

Crap, I just realized my spacing is bad in this patch... Do you have the link handy to properly format the patch? I'll take the time to make it fit the coding style of the project if you can link me.

(In [16137]) Refs #4133. Add Voltage and Mini DiSEqC switch types for DVB-S tuning.

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

(In [16138]) Fixes #4133. Fixes DVB-S tone switching for some. (not patching 0.21 since we have no confirmations from other DVB-S users on whether this breaks/helps tone switching.)

Diseqc tone switching had been fine for me with mythtv 0.21

However switching to trunk svn broke for me. Reverting just change 16138 then made it work again.

I'm afraid I don't know enough about diseqc to explain it - I don't even know the type of diseqc tone switch that I have.

If it's any help, I have a Hauppauge Nova-S+ card.

This patch fixes tone switching for me. Have you tried changing your switch type to mini diseqc with this patch applied? Does it restore functionality for you?

Mini diseqc does work - thanks!

(In [18993]) fix DVB-S Tone switches. backports [16137] and [16138] from trunk

This breaks unfortunately mini-DiSEqC configured as "tone switch". The configuration has to be manually changed to the mini-diseqc switch type in mythtv-setup. Refs #4133
