I Have a question regarding my DVB-S card: Is it possible to add a second LNB through a diseqc switch? I mean does every card support a diseqc or is it possible that my card will not be able to switch lnb? And is there a possibility of damage to the card?

My card is the Gigabyte GT-PS700

Thanks

    No i don't think they do. I had a quick look at the spec of your card and it doesn't mention anything about being able to control a diseqc switch at all. I therefore assume that it doesn't work with one.

    There may be other ways that you can do this but it will probably be a lot more involved than just getting a card that supports it natively.

    Regards

    Hi,
    Unfortunately I have no further info on how you may be able to do that?
    I am assuming that somewhere someone has probably done what you want, but with lord knows how many bits and pieces etc etc etc.
    I would say it may be better (and easier) to get a card that does support the diseqc switching and then sell your card on fleabay.

    Regards

    Today I did send a reminder to DD, since 09-2020 no news from them about new drivers. 3.0.2.211 x64 seems to work for me to, but DD told me, those where beta drivers, and some cards did have problems with them. Here you can find stable older drivers, Digital Devices Store But 3.0.3.224 did not work for me, so the latest stable...

    In lieu of a likely modification to TV Setup module, I have devised my own workaround, using SQL. Here is a quick resume. Should be safe but make sure you have a backup before you try this! Simple scenario to demonstrate. 2 cards both on A/B diseqc switches. In each case A connects to LNB pointed at Satelite 1, and B to Sat 2...

    Hi catavolt, selling this HTPC does not mean that I will no longer be available to the community as a plugin developer. If there are severe problems with the plugins at the moment, I can try to analyze causes and find possible solutions. However, this will currently only have low priority, as I am responsible for employees and...
