'''stv090x-scan''' is a QT based application for stv0900 and stv090x devices like PROF 7301, PROF 7500, TBS 6925 and perhaps others. It is still in heavy development but stable and quite functional.  It does satellite signal spectrum graphing, frequency blindscanning, TS stream analysis and has features for outputing to various video players. Additional features are being planned. See the TODO list.

'''updateDVB''' is a QT based application for stv090x devices like PROF 7301 7500 8000, TBS 5925 5980 6925, Skystar 2 Express HD.   It does satellite signal spectrum graphing, frequency blind scanning, TS stream analysis and has features for outputting to various video players and streaming via HTTP. In loop mode spectrum scans can be done in 2-3 seconds per scan with most devices making it very useful for pointing your dish and finding satellites. Monitoring signal dB level on the tuning window makes it easy to peak your dish for maximum signal.

stv090x-scan was renamed to updateDVB, and now uses v4l-updatelee repo, a complete 3.11 RC2 kernel.
 
Both are using git now instead of mercurial.

updateDVB is a QT based application for stv090x devices like PROF 7301 7500 8000, TBS 5925 5980 6925, Skystar 2 Express HD. It does satellite signal spectrum graphing, frequency blind scanning, TS stream analysis and has features for outputting to various video players and streaming via HTTP. In loop mode spectrum scans can be done in 2-3 seconds per scan with most devices making it very useful for pointing your dish and finding satellites. Monitoring signal dB level on the tuning window makes it easy to peak your dish for maximum signal.

Dependencies

  • QT 5.4 or later
  • libqwt-6.1
  • git
  • v4l-updatelee [1]

Installation

Build and install the patched v4l-updatelee DVB kernel drivers. Instructions are in the README. An alternate driver install is media_build_udl.

Copy the frontend.h and dmx.h include files from this tree to /usr/include/linux/dvb/.

Now you are ready to build and install updateDVB. Follow the instructions in the README.


Initial Setup and Operation

On first run choose File => Settings and configure your LNB and Adapter settings. Hit save and close.

Pick your Adapter and LNB config from the lists. Click "Spectrum Scan" to generate a graph of the frequency spectrum. Takes about 4 to 14 seconds slow mode, 1 to 4 seconds fast mode depending on the device. Clicking on any of the frequency "bumps" in the graph pops open the Tuning window. If a signal lock is achieved the signal parameters will be displayed and the TS is parsed and analysed. You can play or stream the entire mux or select a single PMT.
