Today upgrade make my STB not working

16 December 2012 - 14:02

Hi guys.

This morning I've made an "opkg update ; opkg upgrade" in my Clarke Teck 9100
Last upgrade was done by me about 1 month ago.
Since 10 minutes before upgrade, my CT was working very fine.

After upgrading (involving new kernel a new E2 image) and rebooting, my system was broken.


1) I've a DTT USB stick Avermedia A867
USB stick is found by kernel and module is correctly loaded


AVerMedia A867 driver module V1.0.27 loaded.
dvb-usb: found a 'AVerMedia A867 DVB-T Recevier' in warm state.
dvb-usb: will pass the complete MPEG2 transport stream to the software demuxer.
DVB: registering new adapter (AVerMedia A867 DVB-T Recevier)
DVB: registering adapter 0 frontend 0 (A867 USB DVB-T)...
dvb-usb: AVerMedia A867 DVB-T Recevier successfully initialized and connected.
usbcore: registered new interface driver dvb-usb-a867


Module Size Used by
ntfs 117802 0
ipv6 351430 12
dvb 4874979 7
modloader2 32661 1 dvb
modloader 22281 0
tpm 6509 3 dvb,modloader2,modloader
dvb_usb_a867 210137 0
dvb_usb 18026 1 dvb_usb_a867

but in Enigma2 there is no the third tuner DTT. It's disappeared !

2) embedded DVB-S2 tuner are found by kernel

DVB: registering new adapter (dvb0)
DVB: registering adapter 1 frontend 0 (DVB-S2)...
DVB: registering adapter 1 frontend 1 (DVB-S2)...

and into E2 they are configured correctly but OSD say to me:

Service unavailable!
Check tuner configuration!

for all channels.

3) there is a minor error in one plugin:

root@et9x00:~# opkg update
Package enigma2-plugin-systemplugins-autobouquetsmaker version git194+b8c7e01-r25 has no valid architecture, ignoring.

E2 crash mounting NTFS USB disk (since kernel 3.3.x)

5 May 2012 - 15:31

Hi guys.

I've some USB 500GB 2.5" external HDD full of MKV video.
Till one month ago I had no problem: I connect them to frontal USB and they works fine. Kernel 3.2.x

For last month I've not used any external USB HDD.
Some days ago I've upgraded my CT9100 to Kernel 3.3.x and yesterday evening I've done another upgrade session, so my CT9100 is freshly updated.
This afternoon I connect an USB disk and E2 crash....

1) I connect USB disk and, after 10-15 sec. , screen show spinner and E2 is crashed (no response from remote control)

Connecting with SSH to CT9100 I see:

2) disk looks to be mounted correctly
root@et9x00:~# mount
rootfs on / type rootfs (rw)
ubi0:rootfs on / type ubifs (rw,relatime)
proc on /proc type proc (rw,relatime)
sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw,relatime)
tmpfs on /media type tmpfs (rw,relatime,size=64k)
tmpfs on /dev type tmpfs (rw,relatime,size=64k,mode=755)
devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,relatime,mode=600)
/dev/sda1 on /media/usb type ext4 (rw,relatime,barrier=1)
/dev/sdb1 on /media/hdd type ext4 (rw,relatime,barrier=1,data=ordered)
usbfs on /proc/bus/usb type usbfs (rw,relatime)
tmpfs on /var/volatile type tmpfs (rw,relatime)
/dev/sdc1 on /media/sdc1 type fuseblk (rw,nosuid,nodev,relatime,user_id=0,group_id=0,allow_other,blksize=4096)

3) dmesg looks fine, no problem

sd 3:0:0:0: [sdc] Assuming drive cache: write through

4) there is a process (sleep state) involving ntfs
500 root 3156 S mount.ntfs-3g /dev/sdc1 /media/sdc1

5) If I try
root@et9x00:~# ls /media/sdc1
nothing happen: 'ls' command is freezed as it cannot access to disk.

I must remove USB disk connector and poweroff-on my STB

I've tried 3 different HDD model without any success, all with NTFS format.
In my Kubuntu system and in my Win7 system they work great without problem.

Something strange happen with upgrade to kernel 3.3.x (from 3.2.x)....

Audio pid from another channel ?

9 April 2012 - 07:57

Hi folks !

Probably the answer is NOT but ....

Suppose I've two different channels transmitted
It's possible to watch video pid of channel "A" and have audio from channel "B" as a real-time mix ?

Example: yesterday I want to see MotoGP Qatar race. In Italy there is not a full-HD feed: only SD (bleah !)
I've found a foreign channel with superb full-hd image but comment is not in italian language.
So the idea is to watch foreign channel in full-hd (i.e. tuned on TUNER A) but listen audio from italian channel (i.e. tuned on TUNER B )
Is it possible ?

Today upgrade: strange warnings

15 January 2012 - 08:34

This morning I've made an "opkg update" and "opkg upgrade" (last was made by me about 10 days ago).

I see some strange messages: I don't know if they are fake warnings or are important.
I don't remember to see them in the past....
