Hey,

 

So for my first HTPC build I have used a Raspberry Pi 3 running OSMCwith this HDStar DVB-S tuner https://www.aliexpress.com/item/GENIATECH-Mygica-HDStar-DVB-S2-TV-Box/699117215.html. I have installed Tvheadend 4.0.9 and set up the settings as best as I can tell for Optus D1. (Pics attached) However, running scans on both the muxes ends in failure. 

 

I got the tuner to work in Windows using the supplied driver software but can't get it to work with Tvheadend. Firmware was added from https://github.com/OpenELEC/dvb-firmware/blob/master/firmware/dvb-fe-ds3000.fw which is needed for this tuner.

 

Has anyone had similar problems with this setup (assuming these are the correct settings? I would love for it to be a simple solution - otherwise will buy another tuner.

Is there another option instead of 10750 high band for the LNB? High band may activate the 22khz switch on the LNB which wouldn't help

Thanks for posting the link - I was looking at a couple more USB DVB-S2 receivers, but all I could find were the more expensive TBS-branded boxes.

 

In the feedback for the link, there are users having issues the TVheadend ? Not familiar myself, as I will use the geniatech on a windows platform..

 

 

 

Cheers

Yes the feedback isn't very descriptive on why others are having trouble.

 

Thanks for the advice I have tried other options for the LNB - 10750 (not high band) and Circular but neither of these work either.

You may be past these steps but when I had a mythbox :)
 - check dmesg after plugging in the usb cable and check correct firmware is loaded - settings I had from mythtv

 

LNB - 10750  Standard (Voltage)

Scan Horizontal - Frequency (kHz): 12483000 (TVNZ) 12456000 (CanWest) 

 

Symbol Rate: 22500000

Yes I have checked the dmesg output as printed below and it looks to be all there. Have tried settings as shown thanks but still no luck.

It could also be an 11300 LNB perhaps, and not 10750?
