Tvheadend + Fritzbox 6660 Cable

Added by Christian Schöniger about 1 year ago

Hi,

i'm using a Fritzbox 6660 cable modem with quad DVB-C Tuner + Tvheadend 4.3-1967~geb59284 + Kodi.
This is working almost perfect.

Only almost because i've got the following problem:

When Tvheadend uses one tuner twice, because the 2 services are in the same mux, the stream starts stuttering.
This will get worse, 'till the FB isn't reachable anymore and reboots.

So my question is, if there's a config setting to limit the use of a single tuner and use the next free one instead.

Thanks for your help.

Regards,
Christian

I have installed Tvheadend on my QNAP NAS but it doesn't find any of the Fritzbox 6660 tv-tuners.
Do you know what I have to do to get the Fritzbox 6660 tuners to show up?

If I have this working we can maybe work together to see if what you say is happening to me as well.

@Jordan: maybe the linked page will help you too

AFAIK you don't need dedicated IP addresses for each tuner.

Christian Wattengård: I'm not sure but maybe check "Full mux RX mode supported" setting. And check the logs - maybe it's another issue in your setup.

I need to do this:

CONFIGURING TVHEADEND
First open /etc/init.d/tvheadend, find the line reading ARGS="-f" and append something like --satip_xml http://192.168.1.1:49000/satipdesc.xml within the quotes. save the file and restart Tvheadend.

So I need to change the startup parameters to make sure to let TVHeadend look voor DVB-C tuners on http://10.238.238.1:49000/satipdesc.xml

I just can't find out where to change the args= on the qnap startup script.

Anyone knows how to get this in the startup script what's explained above with ARGS="-f --satip_xml http://10.238.238.1:49000/satipdesc.xml"

RE: Tvheadend + Fritzbox 6660 Cable - Added by Jordan van Bergen 6 months ago

I did this now:

./TVHeadend.sh cmdline

And put this in the first cmdline:

--satip_xml http://10.238.238.1:49000/satipdesc.xml

Saved with ESC
wq!

And restarted TVHeadend on QNAP NAS AppCenter.

Now it sees the DVB-C Tuner!

maybe you can find the script with something like

ps fax

RE: Tvheadend + Fritzbox 6660 Cable - Added by Christian Schöniger 6 months ago

for configuring tvheadend with a Fritzbox 6660 Cable
first make sure Live-TV is enabled on the FB:

Tvheadend should find the device (or is there something else to setup?):

The Adapter and each Tuner is configured like this:
There's no need for dedicated IP addresses for each tuner.

Hopefully this will help.

For me it did not show the tuners in TVHeadend. But after doing this from the QNAP NAS command line:

vi ./TVHeadend.sh cmdline

And put this in the first cmdline:

--satip_xml http://10.238.238.1:49000/satipdesc.xml

Saved with ESC
wq!

And restarted TVHeadend on QNAP NAS AppCenter.

Now it sees the DVB-C Tuner!

So this is what was needed for me to be able to use the Tuners in de QNAP TVHeadend NAS.
