#1168816 Glamour Aura FHD skin - first public release canditate (RC3)

Posted by MCelliotG on 24 February 2020 - 18:28

Hi, the skin runs parallel with WeatherMSN, meaning that if you update the plugin, the info in the skin should be updated also. Unless there are new parameters in the converter I'm missing. Anyway I'll try it when I find time to see if something changes!

What a nice christmas present! Thank you for this honor! :)

 

This is my Github!

https://github.com/M...ourAuraFHD-skin

 

The skin is maintained as much as time allows it (I'm a very busy person fortunately or not), but I make sure everything runs fine after testing. Notably, the OpenPLI compatible version works flawlessly on SatDreamGr images (PLI-based) provided it meets the minimal requirements (everything is in the disclaimer on my github, along with the GPL license).

Of course, everything about the skin can be discussed here, as usual!

That's why I never use external/3rd party skins. Have done in the past. Always, without exception, resulting in GSOD bootloops. Always something wrong with them... I simply don't dare any more...

I'm sorry but this comment is mean and ignorant! The poster that notified me is kindly referring to the old posted ipk version of my skin as a standalone third party installer. This version is old and it's very natural that certain incompatibilities will arise in newer versions of OpenPLI when using this old version.

So, to clarify let me quote one of my older posts

the latest version is from the feeds as these are constantly updated automatically from my github. I have slowed down on making standalone versions as both satdreamgr and openatv have my skin on their feeds.
I will make a standalone version later this month.
So, download it from the feed and it will updated as soon as I update my github.

Now, my skin is one of the very few that are included in the feeds of OpenATV and SatDreamGr (PLI based) exactly because it is constantly updated on my Github and I personally invest A LOT of my very limited free time to maintain it on both skinning and python coding in order to make it compeletely bugless, and on top of that it's a one man job, I have absolutely NO help (or asked for it to be fair).

Now, why it is not available as a third party skin on the OpenPLI feeds as well? That's because

a. we never discussed it with the OpenPLI team

b. I didn't ask them

c. they didn't ask me back

d. it may happen one day, but it's their decision and I respect that!

 

That does not mean that my work is problematic and falls into the category of badly coded or neglected skins. On the contrary, I receive many messages from a lot of people that use it that have no problem with it, especially since it's one of the few with a disclaimer and I have been very straightforward with the hardware limitations I decided to make it compatible with!

 

And that's all I have to say, I think I have every right to defend my work, especially when I put on so much effort and endless hours in the making!

You both reply to different things! :blink:

@frankviana, if I recall correctly astra requires the last : in the reference!

So try this

astra --analyze "t2mi://#t2mi_pid=64&t2mi_input=http://127.0.0.1:8001/1:0:1:320:3A2:0:C7A0FA0:0:0:0:"

I know, it sounds stupid but worked for me!




#863747 New tuner Si2166D- Mut@nt 51HD

Posted by MCelliotG on 30 March 2018 - 00:51

So, I'm trolling now, OK....

I've been trying so hard with evidence to prove what's wrong and all I get is that I'm trolling...

 

No, my friend I will not answer any of these questions. Because it seems everything I say is trolling to you! And everything you say is right!

Yes, HD51 is a perfect receiver. It has no problems at all, you say it is and because you say it it's right!

Everyone else is trolling!

 

I'm sorry I even lost my time with this, it's more than apparent we will never get the support we deserve for this receiver with this kind of attitude!

I'm totally out of this conversation. I've been on satellite forums for years and have been always helpful. My only mistake is buying a receiver I mistakenly thought would be correctly supported and all I get is people mocking me for trolling!

 

Good luck to everyone who owns an HD51. Enjoy your perfect problem-free product!




#863729 New tuner Si2166D- Mut@nt 51HD

Posted by MCelliotG on 29 March 2018 - 23:59

OK, I try the most of my capacity, but let's make myself even more clear then. I report two different issues that were already reported by other people as well!

 

PROBLEM 1:

No LIVE tuner values supported.

When OpenPLI is set to read the frequency data from the tuner and not the lamedb 

Infobar frontent data source -- Tuner

instead of the tuned live frequency data we get only the oscillator frequency of the LNB. If the frequency for instance is 12034V we will only get 10600V, if it's 10775H we get 9750H!

tunerlive1.jpg

All other receivers with Silabs tuners report the tuner values with this setting on correctly!

This also affects the DVB-T2 tuner of HD51, which means it could be more than the driver, something else has to be missing too!

 

 

PROBLEM 2:

The tuner driver DOES NOT report the db values correctly, but a calculated down value which in many cases differs up to 2 db from the real one!

Plus there is a lot of variation in the db value (signal goes up and down randomly with no reason) especially on Multistream channels.

Plus when a frequency is tuned you don't see the real db right away but a lower value. For instance it goes from 7.5db to 17.2db!

 

Instead of outputting the correct 0.25 increment values for example 10.25 - 10.50 - 10.75 - 11.00 - 11.25 etc

the generic driver that HD51 uses outputs calculated down values  10.20 - 10.50 - 10.70 - 11.20 etc. Often it skips increments as well.

 

I ran femon and fe-tool to monitor the demodulator's behaviour. Although it is DVBAPI v5.1 this DOES NOT mean the values are correct. DVBAPI reads the values from the driver. If the driver reports erroreous values, DVBAPI will too!

So this is what femon reports on HD51.

Lock   (0x1f) Signal= 56.25% C/N= 14.70dB
       Layer A: C/N= 75.00%
Lock   (0x1f) Signal= 56.25% C/N= 14.70dB
       Layer A: C/N= 75.00%
Lock   (0x1f) Signal= 58.59% C/N= 17.50dB
       Layer A: C/N= 89.00%
Lock   (0x1f) Signal= 58.59% C/N= 17.20dB
       Layer A: C/N= 88.00%
Lock   (0x1f) Signal= 58.59% C/N= 17.20dB
       Layer A: C/N= 88.00%
Lock   (0x1f) Signal= 56.64% C/N= 9.70dB
       Layer A: C/N= 50.00%
Lock   (0x1f) Signal= 56.64% C/N= 13.20dB
       Layer A: C/N= 67.00%
Lock   (0x1f) Signal= 59.38% C/N= 9.00dB
       Layer A: C/N= 46.00%
Lock   (0x1f) Signal= 59.38% C/N= 13.20dB
       Layer A: C/N= 67.00%

In the marked red you can also see the issue these 9db values happen when you zap through channels with different frequencies. None of the other Silabs receivers have this problem.

 

Let's compare what SF4008 outputs with fe-tool.

root@sf4008:~# dvb-fe-tool -m -a 0 -f 1
Lock (0x1f) Signal= 0.00% C/N= 10.75dB
Layer A: C/N= 62.49%
Lock (0x1f) Signal= 0.00% C/N= 10.75dB
Layer A: C/N= 62.49%
Lock (0x1f) Signal= 0.00% C/N= 10.75dB
Layer A: C/N= 62.49%
Lock (0x1f) Signal= 0.00% C/N= 10.75dB
Layer A: C/N= 62.49%
Lock (0x1f) Signal= 0.00% C/N= 10.75dB
Layer A: C/N= 62.49%
Lock (0x1f) Signal= 0.00% C/N= 11.00dB
Layer A: C/N= 68.73%
Lock (0x1f) Signal= 0.00% C/N= 11.00dB
Layer A: C/N= 68.73%

As you can see we have 0.25 increments and steady values. This is the expected behaviour!

 

Now, I can't make myself any more clear. These are two basic tuner driver problems. WTE claims that this is normal behaviour and all other receivers report fake values. If this is not denial, I don't know what is!

 




#863684 New tuner Si2166D- Mut@nt 51HD

Posted by MCelliotG on 29 March 2018 - 22:35

No, we're not discussing the motor problem anymore, the tuner values are another issue, not having to do with the motor. No team can make their own drivers to fix these (unless they are Dreambox)

I don't know what else to say, it's like WTE is trying to convince himself that everything works correctly, but it seems like he is in complete denial. If this is the support we are getting in the future from Mutant, I can easily see people moving on to other receivers that will at least listen to what the customers have to say... I'm REALLY disappointed! :(
