Identical channels on multiple video sources

Reported by: Daniel Sherwood Owned by: Stuart Auchterlonie
Priority: minor Milestone: unknown
Component: MythTV - EIT Version: 0.22-fixes
Severity: medium Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no


I have a Nota-T 500 dual DVB tuner, however due to a combination of reception quality and receiver sensitivity, I have found that only one of the tuners is capable of recording from certain multiplexes (annoyingly the BBC ones that we watch most often).

To work around this, I have tried to create 2 video sources (all listings from EIT) one which contains all channels from all multiplexes (mapped to the more sensitive/better tuner) and a second with the channels from the offending multiplexes deleted (mapped to the less sensitive/worse tuner).

Both tuners are configured to record 2 channels at a time.

If I understand correctly, this should result either tuner being able to record the shared channels, but only the better tuner being able to record channels on the offending multiplexes.

However the result I get is that only one of the tuners (either the first configured tuner or the first configured video source - I'm not sure) is ever used and scheduling conflicts are reported for simple cases where the two tuners should be used.

Currently using 0.22-fixes.

Only video source 1 is being used for scheduling. This is likely due to a broken Input Connections configuration or due to a lack of listings information for the 2nd video source (see #7672 and and note that you'll need to enable both cards to be used for EIT and to do EIT data collection for their own channels--cross-source EIT won't work).

If you would like help configuring your Input Connections or EIT, please ask for help on the mythtv-users mailing list.
