VDR + DVB-C TT 2.1 Full featured, TT 1501 budget, and DVB-S TT3200 budget - 14-March-2009, 23:53

Hi all.

New here, been reading around here and there's a lot of info and also around on the internet, but I think here might be a good place to ask some questions and hopefully get some answers or just some pointers.

I have a full featured TT 2.1 (or is it a 2100?) card which I have got working with linvdr and I liked it so much I want to do a proper vdr install.

The main reason for this is that I have read that to get encrypted channels using SC I need to compile a copy of VDR myself.

Is there a basic guide somewhere on how to do this? I have read a lot of conflicting info:

I'm not going to use HD, so therefore I should use version 1.6 of VDR? Or should I use the most recent? Does version 1.6 use V4L and 1.7 use S2API? Should i use S2 API ?

Do I need to patch VDR? I read alot of people say 'put this patch on' but no info as to why or what the patch does and where there is a list where I can check to see what patches I need? I downloaded the card firmware and placed in the correct place. My card now detects properly at boot.

I've read that VDR needs to be compiled to get SC working, will this just work, or do I need to set some flags or patch in SC code or something? the SC doesn't work in linvdr because the version of vdr is so old?

Do I need to set up a 'card server' to get encrypted channels viewable with vdr? I am familiar with bin images and roms and smart cards. Is this as well as or instead of SC, or do they work together. Is ccam or gbox something I would use?

Assuming I get that all working my plan then was to hopefully add the second DVB-C card, a TT-1501C which is a budget card.

In order to view the decrypted channels with this is this where the card server comes in - to have more than one card decrypting?

Provided all of that worked I would have a sweet PVR cable box.

The next step would be to plugin the TT3200 DVB-S card. I would only be using this to receive FTA channels from Astra 2, using DVB-S (not DVB-S2) Does this affect any of my setup? Does this affect my choice of verson of VDR?

There is 1 (one) HD channel I am aware of (BBC HD) which is HD, but does not broadcast in S2, just normal 'S'. Even though I beleive I will not be able to view this using the full featured card, I could record it to disc for viewing with another machine, correct?

Having these 3 cards in the one box is OK from a kernal modules isntalled point of view? I read somewhere that to get the TT3200 working it meant using some incompatible modules with the DVB-C cards?

The DVB-C cards will receive 95% of the channels that the DVB-S card receives, does VDR handle multiple sources with similar channels in a logical fashion?

Lastly, my hardware is a P2B-DS Dual PIII 450, 256MB, 160 GB, 100Mb network. (no video, no sound)

As far as I can tell this should be adequete for my intended purpose? I want to use the Full featured card for video and sound out. Is that possible?

I'm using debian lenny. (I'm pretty familiar with linux)

I hope this isn't too long and any comments or help appreciated.

I expect I'll probably have to go through this process a few times. By the end I expect I'll have a howto/guide which I could post up if interested, but obviously only if I can get this working.

cheers al

You're able to use S2API, even if you don't want to use HDTV ;) You can also use VDR 1.6.0, no additional patching is required. Just get the vdr-sc plugin (use my tutorial to get it) and put it in the plugins location. Compile and it should work, at least in theory
