DVB-C setup in Berlin | osmc

Added by Herr Deh 7 days ago

Hello,
tried to integrate a tvheadend into osmc. Build: 4.2.8 (2021-02-21
USB DVB-C adaptor is found in tvheadend. In the wizard, I choose

  • network 2 network DVB-C
  • as predefined mux: Germany: de-Berlin

Then a very short (~10s) scan process happens:

After that obviously nothing is found:

What's wrong?
Adaptor and cable are allright, signals were o.k. with a MLD setup. From there, I have a channels.conf. Could I use that - and how would I do that?

Cheers,
Wolf

See on TV some other mux, and add it manually.

Thank you for your time - but I cannot understand. What exactly could I do?

RE: DVB-C setup in Berlin | osmc - Added by saen acro 7 days ago

On regular TV go to setting signal monitor and see parameters of muxes
at then add it manually to TVH.

or use some scanning program under linux
https://wiki.ubuntuusers.de/w-scan2/
/do not forget to disable tuner in TVH to scan with it/

Initial scan 
DVBAPIv3

#WSCAN
w_scan -f c -x
#TSDUCK
tsscan -v -l --show-modulation
#SCAN
scan -o pids -a 2 initscan.conf

DVBAPI v5

w_scan2 -f -c x > initial

dvb-format-convert -I CHANNEL -O DVBV5 initial de-City-Provider

Put in tvheadend

cp de-City-Provider /usr/share/tvheadend/data/dvb-scan/dvb-c/
systemctl restart tvheadend

Thank you very much - that worked nicely, now I have a ton of channels available. Getting rid of the useless ones was the bigger job.

Now - which files should I post (where to) in order to be incorporated into tvheadend?

Cheers,
Wolf

Must be posted as PR in
https://github.com/tvheadend/dtv-scan-tables

use generated file by this scenario

# DVBAPI v5
w_scan2 -f -c x > initial
dvb-format-convert -I CHANNEL -O DVBV5 initial de-City-Provider

But more correct is to be posted in
https://git.linuxtv.org/dtv-scan-tables.git/

Sorry, I do not have push access to github, so I'm posting the file here and kindly ask you to forward it to the appropriate place. Hope it's the correct one.
