Hello,

for many years I used a Digital Devices CineS2 on a unicable system with Mediaportal. Recently I upgraded with an additional Digital Devices Max M4, which is a multituner card.
From the CineS2 I was used that the satellite signal strength is always 100%. Even if the signal is so weak that I have dropouts (due to bad weather). The wrong signal display was never a problem, because I could watch TV.

The new Max M4 shows a similar behavior, exept that the signal strength is always 0%. A sat scan with that card showed also 0% signal strength, but found all avaliabe stations, so the card works fine. Now I face the problem when I want to use the card to watch TV I get the message "No signal" what is definately not true. In a check with DD-TV the Max M4 worked fine so the error comes obviosly from Mediaportal. It seems to me that the signal strength isn't calculated correctly with Digital Devices cards and causes that I can't watch TV with the Max M4.

With the manual control of the TV-Server I startet some short timeshiftings alternating with the CineS2 and the Max M4. The logs of this test are in the attachment. I hope somebody can help me with that issue. If you need more information just contact me. I try to provide the missing infos.

Best regards

Sorry for the late response. In my experience, the EPG grabbing of a single transponder takes 2 to 3 minutes. Afterwards it takes 1 to 2 minutes to write the data to disk. To speed up the EPG stuff (not only writing but also reading the EPG guide in MediaPortal), I changed the program table (and only that table) from InnoDB to...

Hi, Thank you for clarifying how the EPG grabbing is working. This helps a lot. Since I added the EPG grabbing of a non-occasional channel on that transponder all seems to be fine now. :) Thanks and regards, Klaus F

Last week I got an answer from Asus support. I should try to unplug the power supply, do a cmos reset and take out the bios battery. Unfortunately it didn't help. But the straight dope was that you can't exclude that the bios chip is defect. I ordered a new one from ebay with the lastet bios version to try it out and installed it and...
