Hi Folks,

 

I have a VuDuo2 and a HDHomeRun (this is a network DVB-C / DVB-T tuner). The two tuners built-in are not enough, so I was thinking to connect my HDHomeRun network tuner to my VuDuo2.

 

With some effort, I was able to cross-compile the Library from the Vendor as well as the open-source kernel module.

 

Once loaded the kernel module is creating the necessary devices in /dev/dvb/ (adapter1 and adapter2 below):

# ll /dev/dvb/*
/dev/dvb/adapter0:

Also the helper application that is part of the kernel module is working without any issues:

Using dvbsnoop you can see that the tuner is working fine, however Enigma did not recognize the tuner (or rather the two new tuners). After a little research I found out that Enigma is not looking at /dev/dvb/, but rather reads /proc/bus/nim_sockets to list the tuners. Unfortunatenly my tuner is not in this list:

# cat /proc/bus/nim_sockets
NIM Socket 0:
Type: DVB-C
Name: Vuplus DVB-C NIM(CXD1978)
Mode 0: DVB-C
Mode 1: DVB-T
Frontend_Device: 0
I2C_Device: 2
NIM Socket 1:
Type: DVB-C
Name: Vuplus DVB-C NIM(CXD1978)
Mode 0: DVB-C
Mode 1: DVB-T
Frontend_Device: 1
I2C_Device: 3

I was trying to trick Enigma by pointing to a different file where I manually added my tuner, but that did not really work. Although I was able to see the tuner in the config dialogue (and I could see that it was working by checking the network traffic) Enigma did not show the video.

 

From what I read on the Internet this might be related to the vtuners in /dev/misc/ and maybe also the entries in /sys/class/dvb/, but I don't quite understand how these things are related.

 

Could anybody give me a hint how I can connect my dvb-device to Enigma?

 

Thanks a lot

Greetings

Hanjo
