#7663 closed defect (invalid)

Unable to lock signal via uncommitted diseqc

Reported by: Mike Nix <mnix@…> Owned by: Janne Grunau
Priority: minor Milestone: unknown
Component: MythTV - DVB Version: head
Severity: medium Keywords: uncommitted diseqc
Cc: Ticket locked: no

Description

I have the following setup: mythtv -> TT-Connect S2-3650 CI -> 8x1 uncommitted diseqc -> LNBs

I was using a 2x1 "super mini" diseqc which worked fine under MythTV configured as either a mini diseqc, or a committed diseqc with 2 ports.

With the new diseqc, scan-s2 works fine - it selects the correct LNB, tunes and finds the correct channels on the satellite. I patched szap-s2 for uncommitted diseqcs and that also locks the signal for each satellite ok.

I configured MythTV for an uncommitted diseqc with 8 ports, but it does not seem to change the switch - I can get a lock on the satellite on the first port, but not any others. mythtv-setup -v channel,extra shows the correct diseqc command being sent - the same one being sent by szap-s2.

If you are trying to replicate my setup, you will need this patch to the s2-liplianin drivers.

Further investigation shows that my S2-3650 is turning off the LNB power for a time when sending the uncommitted diseqc command :( It's as if the firmware thinks a diseqc 2.0 reply is coming back.

The diseqc will switch, but depending on what is plugged in to the port selected (eg an LNB that takes a bit of power at startup) the processor in the diseqc will run out of power and reset. If I switch to an LNB that is getting power from somewhere else, it works.

this bug can be closed as the fault is not in MythTV (and I will go hunting for firmware updates)

Thank you for reporting back.

For anyone finding this later, the issue was finally resolved by swapping the power hungry DMS Quad LNBs for better behaved Chess Edition II Quads.
