Ability to choose Multiple Frontends

Reported by: lennon@… Owned by: danielk
Priority: minor Milestone: unknown
Component: mythtv Version: unknown
Severity: medium Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no

Description

At the moment mythtv will only allow you to choose /dev/dvb/adapterX/frontend0. (X=0,1,......etc)

There are a few devices such as the HVR4000 and HVR3000 and others which have multiple frontends (frontend0 = DVB-S and frontend1 = DVB-T)

at the moment you have to link to to another adapter which is a big hack such as:

#mkdir /dev/dvb/adapter1 #ln -s /dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend1 /dev/dvb/adapter1/frontend0 #ln -s /dev/dvb/adapter0/net1 /dev/dvb/adapter1/net0 #ln -s /dev/dvb/adapter0/dvr1 /dev/dvb/adapter1/dvr0 #ln -s /dev/dvb/adapter0/demux1 /dev/dvb/adapter1/demux0

Patch for multiple DVB frontends for trunk

comment:1 Changed 10 years ago by Paul Kendall <paul@…>

I have tested this patch on the 0.21 fixes branch and made minor modifications for the patch to apply to trunk. What this patch does is store the frontend device name in the database, rather than just 0, 1 etc and in the CardUtil? class it replaces 'frontend' with the appropriate device being asked for. All the other changes are around making the integers into strings. This makes the DVB code more like the other devices in that it uses device names/paths now.
