Description

Screenshot

Controls a the drive of a satellite dish connected to the parallel port.

Hardware requirements

  • free Parallel port
  • Interface: parallel port <-> drive

Software requirements

  • Linux 2.6.x

Installation

VDR has to be patched

cd $SOURCEDIR/VDR
patch < PLUGINS/src/actuator/patches/vdr-1.3.11.diff

and the kernel module has to be compiled separately

cd PLUGINS/src/actuator/module
make

Now see plugin installation.

Configuration

The module uses the parallel port interrupt, so be sure an interrupt is used (default: no interrupt)

modprobe parport_pc io=0x378 irq=7

Circuit diagram

Schematic

This is the needed interface between parallel port and satellite dish drive.
