Hi guys,

 

I have two boxes with different feeds, and I'd like to use the remote tuner fallback feature so I can watch all channels from both boxes on both boxes.

 

Is there a way I can "download" the list of available channels from the remote box?

 

Thanks,

Not with the fallback, that is supposed to work completely transparently. The remotestreamconverter does have that option.

You can see it with certains skins. Bright white services are available from the local receiver, light grey from the fallback tuner and dark grey are unavailable services.

Sounds cool – do you know any skin that does that? (I tried a few ones but no luck)

I only see the local services, even with these skins.

Do I have to do anything special besides what's mentioned at https://wiki.openpli..._Fallback_Tuner (section "How to active the remote fallback tuner")?

 

Appreciate the help!

Fallback doesn't import bouquets. You need to set up bouquets manually and the channels must exist on the server box.

 

To import bouquets from multiple locations you need to use RemoteChannelsStreamConvertor. This does not rely on fallback tuner at all and writes the stream URLs to the bouquets. But with time the bouquets go stale because they don't track the server box

 

Or ChannelsImporter plugin from OE-Alliance-Plugins, uses fallback. On boot it imports the bouquets, lamedb, and EPG from the server box. And it keep the channel list and EPG list fresh by reimporting every few hours (as selected in the plugin setup). Using this plugin the channels list is identical to the server box.

Which is easily solved: either

- copy the services files

or

- use the same "settings lists" on both receivers, which most people already do.

 

BTW only the client receiver needs to have bouquets. Actually it doesn't, you can even zap from the "all services" bouquet quite well.

Yep... I was thinking about this to add this on the code, but you need to add a user id and password to get access to the settings of the server box

The only challenge you have is if you have a hybrid situation. For example, my test box has a single DVB-S tuner (connected to a single LNB) and a DVB-T tuner, but I want to pull the orbitals from my main dish in via the fallback tuner.

 

In this case you have to do some clever merging, which is a bit more work then simply read box A, write box B...

Littlesat this is already done in the plugin I mentioned. When you set up the plugin there are configtext fields for ftp username and password. Ftp is used for copying the bouquets and epg.

OpenViX image has similar embeded directly in the image. When enabled the local tuners are disabled and the box becomes a streaming client.

@wanwizard I would suggest set the box up with bouquets for your local tuners and impprt the other bouquets from your streaming servrr with RCSC. RCSC handles the merge into lamedb fine.

That reminds me... need to check how RCSC handles multistream services. Probably badly.

I prefer to use the fallback tuner, and not bouquets with direct streaming links.

 

I swap boxes and connections a lot, so the number and type of tuners available and connected will vary. With a fallback setup I can give them all the same config (i.e. use a single backup to give the box a config after flashing it), and have working channels.

Hi guys, it is necessary to install CAM on the client side that is running with fallback. Thanks in advanced!
