Hello



I have a setup with 2 dvb-s cards. 1 x hauppauge s2 hd and 1 x tt s-3200.

I decided to try the alpha built and completely uninstalled 1.0.1 includning dropping the database. Now i am not able to get any HD channels with symbolrate 30000 on my hauppauge card :( It works fine on the tt-s3200.

During a scan it just says no signal when reaching thor 1degree west on 12015H 30000 on the hauppauge card. I have tried reverting back to 1.0.2 but that does not make a difference. I have also tried different drivers but with no success.

This used to work just fine!!!

    Hi,
    Attach all logs to your post (& not in the post) & add system specifications to it, so we know what to compare too.

    Ok, so i guess i figured it out.

    The transponder information about how to scan must have changed at some point between mediaportal 1.0 and 1.1 alpha. Apparently it does not affect every dvb-s card as my technotrend s-3200 works fine.

    What i had to do to get the hauppauge to scan the HD channels on Thor 1g west was to edit this file

    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal TV Server\TuningParameters\dvbs\0.8°W Thor 3,5 Intelsat 10-02.xml

    i changed "pilot" to OFF instead of on and set "rolloff" to max instead of thirtyfive

    <Transponder>
    <CarrierFrequency>12015000</CarrierFrequency>
    <Polarisation>LinearH</Polarisation>
    <SymbolRate>30000</SymbolRate>
    <Modulation>Mod8Psk</Modulation>
    <InnerFecRate>Rate3_4</InnerFecRate>
    <Pilot>Off</Pilot>
    <Rolloff>Max</Rolloff>
    </Transponder>


    If i update the transponderlist it will of course overwrite theese settings again.

    Hopefully this can be fixed in a future svn? i have no idea what those settings mean but apparently the hauppauge card needs those set otherwise for it to scan transponders with a symbolrate of 30000 whereas the tt-3200 does not care.

    regards

    Actually it now seems to be a problem on all S2 transponders regardless of symbolrate. I can confirm that this problem also exists in 1.0.2

    I can also confirm this issue is also present on my technotrend S2-3650 whilst my S2-3200 is fine.

    I can also confirm that there is no HD channels on 1 west using Hauppauge HVR-4000

    I do not have any dvbs folder in the tuningparameters folder??

    How can I provide a log with the scanning result?

    You can finde the DVBS tunig folder here
    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal TV Server\TuningParameters

    To get the HD channels to work on the hauppauge card you have to set the "pilot" setting to off on the S" transponder.

    I dont know if the dev's are looking in this thread or what we have to do to get this permanently fixed?

    Hi Mylle,

    My problem is that I do not have this DVBS folder in my tuningparameters folder :(

    I'm on the SNV of 08-08-09 on 1.1.0.0 ALPHA

    Maybe we should put a thread in the SVN section?

    Maybe you can post you dvbs xml-file in the Pastebin

    Thanks in advance.

    That is weird. Are you sure you are looking in the right place?

    It is not in the programfiles\tema mediaportal server.

    What OS are you using? In vista i believe its somewhere in the c:\programdata folder

    Maybe its hidden?

    regards

    Hi Mylle,

    It's vista and I can see all the tuningparameters xml-files.

    Here is my log files after a scan.
