Controls a the drive of a satellite dish connected to the parallel port.
- free Parallel port
- Interface: parallel port <-> drive
- Linux 2.6.x
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.
The module uses the parallel port interrupt, so be sure an interrupt is used (default: no interrupt)
modprobe parport_pc io=0x378 irq=7
This is the needed interface between parallel port and satellite dish drive.
