SS2 in linux - 12-September-2008, 00:12

Hello all,

Can anyone help me how to make a SS2 work under linux with VDR?
A small tutorial will be appreciated.

My SS1 work perfectly with VDR+CCcam/gbox+TVTime, but with SS2 I don't know where to begin?!
- does SS2 need a firmware?! or it enough to compile modules from LinuxTV.org - Television with Linux
- does SS2 work with TVTime?! or it need something else (Xineplugin or something else...)

Can anybody give me some answers?!

All I can help you is with support for installing SS1 under Fedora/Ubuntu with CCcam or GBOX.

Regards,

swimm3r

If you check the DVB Wiki on Linuxtv.org (TechniSat SkyStar 2 TV PCI / Sky2PC PCI - LinuxTVWiki) then you see that the Skystar 2 upto revision 2.6 is supported directly in the kernel. I think that for 2.7 Technisat has closedsource drivers available, 2.8 is not supported at all.

Just plugin your card and it should work.

From there you can use any DVB software (Kaffeine, VDR, MythTV, etc) since it's based on the regular DVB Api. And yes, SS2 does work with VDR and CCcam. But you need a soft-output plugin (xineliboutput, vdr-xine or softdevice) to get it working :)

Maybe CCcam will work under Windows with mbox. Now they have only Beta versions.

CCcam connection from Windows is only possible using the emubox plugin. But, it's not really stable compared to VDR, VDR-SC and CCcam (I know this from personal testing).

Mbox has nothing to do with CCcam. It's infact the reincarnation of Gbox. It uses the same protocol and it's being developed on.

Hello again.

When I try to compile "softdevice" plugin, I get this error:

"make[1]: *** No rule to make target `vidixlib.h', needed by `softdevice.o'. Stop."

I don't know how to repair?!

Please help

Thank you very much!

Use the plugin vdr-xine (uses Xine for output) or xineliboutput (which uses the xine-lib with vdr-sxfe in X)

Try the following tutorial to get it working:

Thank you, Shalafi.

Last night I tried on FC9 with VDR-1.6.0, vdr-sc-0.9.0, and vdr-softdevice-0.5.0. (I did not apply any patch).

I configured "/video/plugins/sc/cardclient.conf" to connect to CCcam; Channel list from "/video/channels.conf" (same that I used for SS1)...

In the end I started capmtserver.x86, CCcam.x86 and vdr. (CCcam configs are OK, because with SS1 worked)

Result
: FTA channels are displayed, but the others not.

Where I did wrong??

Today I will try the tutorial from you.

Thank you!

Ah, you need a preload in combination with CCcam. CCcam must be running localy to use vdr-sc.

To make your life easier, I compressed an archive which has the following:

- cccam and vdr run/start/restart script in /etc/init.d
- runvdr script to run vdr (in combination with vdr run/start/restart script)
- CCcam.x86 with preload (in combination with cccam run/start/restart script)

Be sure to edit the runvdr script to your configuration.

cccam.tar.gz - 0.27MB

Thank you very much Mr. Shalafi!
Job done. SS2 works with VDR+vdr-_sc and CCcam.
