No input Signal -- DVBSky T680CI -- All in a sudden, suspect after Pi update?

Added by Jeroen Lindhout 4 months ago

Dear all,
My set-up used to be working perfectly, but since a month or 2 it stopped working. I suspect after a Raspberry Pi update, but I can not seem to figure out what the problem is, as everything looks good to my opinion.
Any further suggestions, highly appreciated.

Some configuration details, and output.

When using a TVheadend client (Kodi) I now get the error message "No Signal".
First of all, the error I see in tvheadend.log

If I remember correctly, on the DVBSky receiver there used to be little light indicating "Signal Lock", this light is off right now.
To be sure I also changed the COAX cable.

Once again, many thanks for any thoughts someone might have.

Jeroen

i think that with TBS you need to rebuild the drivers after every kernel update. Try rebuilding the drivers using the method on the TBS github page: https://github.com/tbsdtv/linux_media/wiki. I had more or less the same issue at the last update and i thought the card was defective.

I will give this a try, and report results.

Do next

service tvheadend stop

then if not installed install wscan
and run

w_scan -f c -x

Dear all,

Really appreciate your suggestions here, looking at the drivers, I did not find anything useful for the DVBSky on a Raspberry pi. However, the web-site sort of stopped mentioned support for kernel 4.4.
So I decided to roll-back by firmware. Not sure if it helps, but thought it should not harm either.

rpi-update 993f47507f287f5da56495f718c2d0cd05ccbc19

The error message listed above is gone now.

RE: No input Signal -- DVBSky T680CI -- All in a sudden, suspect after Pi update? [Solved] - Added by Jeroen Lindhout 3 months ago

Dear all,

I left the above problem as I could not crack it.

Just to exclude any possibility, I used another coax cable to test, and guess what, that was the issue. I suspect an internal issue with my cable. I could see a signal strength and all in TVheadend, but not TV.
An important lesson, it is not always software related.

Thanks all,
Jeroen

Dear all,

Above problem is back. Does not seem to be the cable. It all comes down — I think — to the tuner “ not locking” the signal. When it all works, my t DVB Sky tuner has a green light burning “Lock”. This light is now off, and TVheadend does not work.
Does anyone what causes the tuner to lock or not to lock s signal?

Best regards,
Jeroen
