Not detecting second frontend right in multiple frontend card HVR-4000

Bug Description

With a Hauppauge HVR-4000 which has been installed as adapter0 with frontend0 = DVB-S (Conexant cx-24116/cx24118) and frontend1 = DVB-T (Conexant cx-22702), both frontends are detected as DVB-S.

An symbolic adaptater1 frontend0 has been created with links to adapter0 frontend1 but this is not detected by gnome-dvb.
V4l-driver have been installed. Kaffeine works OK, mplayer with dvb://2@ also OK and vlc OK.

Is it possible to access config file or to put an argument in command line to access specific adapter and/or frontend ?

No problem, I attached a tarball with the patch applied, just install that one.

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables GNOME_DVB_DAEMON_CFLAGS
and GNOME_DVB_DAEMON_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.

I am struggling to get the right packages. Could you help ? THanks

I suppose you previous install was from the PPA?

To install the missing dependencies run the following command:
"sudo apt-get install libglib2.0-dev libdbus-glib-1-dev libgee-dev libsqlite3-dev python-all-dev python-gobject-dev python-gtk2-dev"
followed by "./configure --prefix=/usr && make && sudo make install" to compile and install everything.

After struggling to install dependencies other than those above mentioned (python 2.5, libuser,...), I finally got to compile and install 0.1.17 and got two menu entries : Digital TV control and setup... but setup is crashing and activation of dvb plugin in totem is not possible...

I upgraded to lucid today, but I can't reproduce your problem.

You can try retrieving a stacktrace with gdb. Install gdb and run "gdb python". In the new prompt type "run /usr/bin/gnome-dvb-setup". When the program crashed you can get a traceback by entering "bt".

Thanks for the stacktrace, it's fixed now. I forgot to mention that you have to provide "--enable-totem-plugin" to the configure call in order to install the totem plugin. Please test the new tarball.

rudy1210 (rudy1210) wrote :

I installed the new tarball with this command :

./configure --prefix=/usr --enable-totem-plugin && make && sudo make install

and I can not see the plugin in plugins list of Totem...

gnome-dvb-setup runs but both frontends are still detected as DVB-S...
I tried to scan DVB-S channels, it looked OK but no channels were found... I am currently checking with dvbscan if this is working.
The fact is that I am more interested in DVB-T and got no luck with gnome-dvb or me-tv...
I still would like to resolve this and if it can help you in developing a solid and robust application, I am willing to contribute. Just tell me how to get relevant data for you...

It's fine that the plugin does not appear in Totem, nevertheless you should have a "Digital TV" section in your sidebar and pressing "Watch TV" should start gnome-dvb-setup.

I just realized that I screwed up again, I'm sorry. The previous tarballs contains the fix for the crasher but not for the actual issue you are having. I attached a new tarball.

It seems that the variety of format for channels.conf makes it tricky as in all differently available output of scan (xine,vdr,...)

Ops, the same bug was in the C code, too, should have realized that earlier. Therefore, you get a scanner for DVB-S but try to feed it with data for DVB-T.

OK so I give some feedback..

Frontends are detected right...
Deamon is running fine...
Setup is not crashing and as already mentioned DVB-S scanning was OK.
But then impossible to get any channel for the DVB-T frontend...

So I ran gnome-dvb-deamon --debug and started setup...
I could see that because of the DVB-S channels , EPG scanner was locking the frontend thus preventing any effective scan on DVB-T (it is known that it is impossible to run both frontends at the same time). So I removed configuration of DVB-S with the control center and started to scan DVB-T. It looks successful.

So there might be something to do to prevent EPG scan while configuring a device to prevent lock of adapter.

Also still no sign of totem plugin... I did put the --enable-totem-plugin in ./configure but there is nothing appearing. It was fine with package 0.1.13 in lucid repo.

I hope I was clear enough in my feedback. If you want me to give some debug stuff, please ask.

Your work is looking promising !! Keep up with the good work !

Thanks a lot for testing, I committed the changes.

I wasn't aware that such pseudo dual-tuner devices exist, that's something we have to consider.

Regarding the Totem plugin: Try copying client/totem-plugin/dvb-daemon.py manually to /usr/lib/totem/plugins/dvb-daemon/
