Hello All,

Today I finished the patch for DVB-S, DVB-S2, DVB-T and DVB-C support using S2API in combination with VDR 1.7.0. I've tested my code on DVB-S, DVB-S2 and DVB-T transports and they were all successful. DVB-C is untested (don't have a DVB-C option where I live) but it should work in *THEORY* ;)

DVB-S and DVB-S2 were tested on a Hauppauge WinTV-NOVA-HD-S2 card. DVB-T was tested on a Gigabyte GT-U7000-RH USB device. I used the latest v4l pull and viewing was very stable with both DVB devices. I also didn't had any problems any more when switching between DVB-S(2) and DVB-T, but it can be that this patch will *NOT* work correctly on MFE DVB devices like the HVR-3000 or HVR-4000 (I had to do some hacking because strangely, DVB-T transports were offered to my DVB-S DVB device). Since I can't test this, I hope others can tell me if it works or not.

Enclosed are two patches. The clean patch is for a clean VDR 1.7.0 source tree patched with Reinhard's vdr-1.7.0-h264-syncearly-framespersec-audioindexer-fielddetection-speedup.diff.bz2 patch. The patched patch is for those who have used Edgar (gimli) Hucek's patch for VDR 1.7.0. In theory it should also work with my last send patch.

The patch itself is still based upon Igor M. Liplianin's S2API patch. Many thanks to Igor, Darron Broad and Edgar (gimli) Hucek for the help and suggestions with the previous and current patch. Again, any feedback on this patch is highly appreciated!

Regards,

Niels Wagenaar
