Hi,
I'm a new MP user and have a BGT3600 card.
Over one year have went by and this problem is still unsolved.

What's the best solution right now for this problem?
(mm1352000, could you describe the "quick and dirty patch-job" or paste some code for it? Then I could recompile it for 1.2.3)

When will 1.3 be released?

Regards
Niclas

    Hello Niclas

    The work here is not abandoned entirely, but it was restarted pretty much from scratch as there were so many changes to the code in MP 1.2.x that it became impossible to maintain the patch and merge updates.

    Regarding a patch: the code is all available in the first post. If you search the "HardwareSpecificRefactoring[v5][SVN_HEAD_26867].zip" file for "BlackgoldBDA" you should find all the code and comments that you have asked for.

    Alternatively you can get my latest code from here:
    https://github.com/MediaPortal/MediaPortal-1/tree/EXP-Tuner_hardware_support_cleanup_and_extension

    In that branch the relevant plugin is called "Microsoft".

    Hi mm,
    I am interested in knowing the status of DiSEqC 1.1 (16 LNB support) in mediaportal. I found this post following pointers from
    https://forum.team-mediaportal.com/...rt-more-than-4-satellites.112955/#post-921140

    Can you please provide an update on DiSEqC 1.1 support status? Does your above mentioned branch contains these changes?

    BR,
    yrehan

    I did simple a fix for the original goal off this thread (no refactoring here)

    Just make the diseqC works for this cards :
    + "@device:pnp:\\\\?\\pci#ven_1131&dev_7162&subsys_010111bd" // Pinnacle PCTV 7010ix
    + , "@device:pnp:\\\\?\\pci#ven_1131&dev_7160&subsys_010411bd" // Pinnacle PCTV 710ix
    + , "@device:pnp:\\\\?\\pci#ven_1131&dev_7162&subsys_354014c7" // Blackgold BGT3540
    + , "@device:pnp:\\\\?\\pci#ven_1131&dev_7231&subsys_359514c7" // Blackgold BGT3595

    It wouldnt break anything else.
    the patch is made on the version 1.7.1 of TVServer

    Hi @mm1352000,

    I hope you are doing well. You have kindly supported once with my Hauppauge HVR-5500 TV Tuner, which never could find any TV-Channel during tuning with TVE3.0 in MP1. Unfortunately there was no solution found. In the end it was possible with MP2 and new TVE3.5 engine. If I understood correctly it was related to missing DiseqC 2.0 support with TVE3.0, perhaps you know better than me :D

    Since I really would like to use also MP1 with my TV-card I tried to find any Pre-TVE3.5 branch for MP1 from Github. There were several branches, but nothing that was working or I was not really sure what was included. :( Is there something?
    If not, is it possible to create an inoffical patch for testing purposes? I know that you do not want to further work on TVE3.0. I also understand this decision, because otherwise everybody will come with something ;)

    But since all latest HVR cards did not work with TVE3.0 I really want to be sure it was an issue about DiseqC or other changes in TVE3.5 mades those cards working. If there are only minor code changes I could also try to compile an modified TV library by myself, just at the moment do not even know for sure where the coresponding code can be found.

    Sorry for bothering you with this. I saw, that you really support many people not only on the surface. but deeply and hope, that you can help me :whistle:
