DuoFlex CT Octopus PCIe

Added by John Pollaert about 10 years ago

Will this card work with tvheadend?

This seems to be a perfect solution to build a multi tuner system when you are short on pci(e) slots.
Found this on linuxtv.org. Experimental support:

Has anyone tried it?

If the tuners are reported as seperate adapters there is no problem using this card. But I am not sure the drivers are completly stable yet. Google for ddbridge to find more information.

Thanks for your answer. I just found the folloing document on the official site:
http://download.digital-devices.de/download/duoflex_ct/datasheet_duoflex_ct.pdf
It clearly states Linux support (Kernel: 2.6.34).
And here the driver: http://support.digital-devices.de/knowledgebase.php?article=56
I'm only not sure if the tuners are reported as seperate adapters. But I gess it does? Otherwise VDR also wouldn't be able to work with this card?

If you use the version from linuxtv.org (http://linuxtv.org/hg/~endriss/ngene-octopus-test) make sure you use the correct kernel version with it. And I think that version will show the different tuners as seperate adapters using some kernel module options.

So .. are you going all out and make a 8 tuner monster machine :-)

Well, i think i'm going to start with 1 or 2x2 dvb-c tuners. If that is working well i will put a dish in the garden and get 1x2 dvb-s2 tuners.
With 6 tuners available and plenty of channels i can watch and record more then enough for a 2 person household......
