It would be handy to know why our streamproxy doesn't work, but the old transsteamproxy does. Any idea where the source of that binary is?

I adapted this plugin for openPli.

It seems this source





I tested it on lunix4k/solo4k/gbue4k

Ok, so then Erk has to do a find-the-10-differences...


It is better to fix it, then to work around it.

Currently in use: VU+Duo 4K (2xFBC S2), Amiko Viper T2C (T2+fallback), Octagon SF8008 (S2+T2), Zgemma H9.2H (T2+fallback)

Many answers to your question can be found in our new and improved wiki.

There are two problems:


1) neither VU+, DAGS or Broadcom supply us with the proper way to interface with the transcoding device. We had to reverse engineer all of it. Some parts of the interface are non-unix-standard, so that doesn't help either. I've managed to get it working on VU+, but that, indeed, doesn't guarantee it will work on another manufacturer's receivers.

2) the VU+ transstreamproxy is written in a horribly inefficient way, it will burn many CPU cycles needlessly. But apparently the efficient interface, using select() and poll() instead of threads, isn't implemented completely/properly.


So. As soon as anyone can tell me what needs to be changed, I'd be happy to apply it (either 1:1 or using an alternative approach that will accomplish the same).
