I have described my problem with NTSC output for North America in my
previous post. I did apply suggested patch but it didn't solve my
problem. Now I would like provide more details for the problem.
If I start VDR without tuning to any channel I will get "rolling"
picture on TV in B/W (it looks like PAL mode). But if I use szap and
tune the DVB-S card to some channel I will get correct picture on the
screen of TV. Then if I start VDR and tune same channel I will get
correct picture/sound. So, it looks like if the card find signal it
will work in NTSC mode (weird behavour).
Other problem I found is that if I switch between channels on the same
transpoder I will get picture/sound (TV channel) or sound (Radio
channel). If I am on radio channel I have "rolling" screen and B/W
picture. It looks like I am in PAL mode again.
But if I switch to other transpoder I get no picture and no sound and
"rolling" screen again.
What is most interesting I never had a problem to tune up by using szap
program but can not do it in VDR. I guess that it somehow can be related
to patches I applied for plugins I use. I will recompile VDR without
plugins to see if I am right about it.
Is there somebody uses same setup as mine for North America? I would
like to hear about your experience.
I have next configuration
CPU: Athlon 1.2GHz
OS: Fedora Core 2
Plugins: rotor remote control
DVB-S: Nexus-S 2.3
Location: North America/Canada
