I try to use a new receiver (Hauppage WinTV-Duet, a dual dvb-t usb
receiver) but it doesn't work. When I start vdr, I can see them in vdr :
vdr:  new device number 3
vdr:  section handler thread started (pid=16411, tid=16436, prio=low)
vdr:  frontend 2/0 provides DVB-T with QPSK,QAM16,QAM64 ("DiBcom
vdr:  probing /dev/dvb/adapter3/frontend0
vdr:  creating cDvbDevice
vdr:  new device number 4
vdr:  section handler thread started (pid=16411, tid=16439, prio=low)
vdr:  tuner on frontend 2/0 thread started (pid=16411, tid=16438,
vdr:  frontend 3/0 provides DVB-T with QPSK,QAM16,QAM64 ("DiBcom
but when I try to use one of them, vdr complains with the following
vdr:  frontend 2/0 timed out while tuning to channel 7, tp 562
(same message for the second adapter)
I can see the green led switching on (witch means vdr access the
adapter) but only for a few seconds before the above message. vdr tries
again without success. There is no more log with loglevel 3.
I tried manually and everything works :
tzap -a 2 -r -c ~/tzap.chan "France 2"
using '/dev/dvb/adapter2/frontend0' and '/dev/dvb/adapter2/demux0'
reading channels from file '/root/tzap.chan'
tuning to 586000000 Hz
video pid 0x0078, audio pid 0x0082
status 1f | signal ac22 | snr 00d5 | ber 001fffff | unc 0000007d |
status 1f | signal abe6 | snr 00dd | ber 00000000 | unc 00000000 |
status 1f | signal abdb | snr 00d8 | ber 00000000 | unc 00000000 |
status 1f | signal abaa | snr 00e6 | ber 00000000 | unc 00000000 |
then, I can see the channel with mplayer in /dev/dvb/adapter2/dvr0.
Are there some parameters in vdr to get my adapter working ?
