Description

With the lnbsharing patch two or more DVB cards can be connected to one satellite cable (LNB output) without disturbing each other.

This patch makes sure, that cards using the same LNB also always using the same polarisation and the same frequency domain. This prevents illegitimate channels switching during recordings.

Versions

The patch was rewritten to allow a more flexible configuration.

  • The old versions are named lnb_sharing_vdr-<VERSION>.patch
  • The new versions are named configurableLNBshare-VDR_<VERSION>.patch
