[SOLVED] w_scan (20170107-2.1) DVB-T2

Added by Marc Ominus 5 days ago

I have just try scanning (blind scan) for new multiplexes in our communal aerial and satellite system,
and trying w_scan, but no T2 multiplexes appear in my scan for T/T2....:

Anyone any advise?

Forcing DVB-T2 on w_scan (20170107-2.1), how would that be done?
w_scan --help nor w_scan -H give any clues :(

Thank you for the w_scan2, works great :) Here is howto for benefit of others:
https://github.com/stefantalpalaru/w_scan2

git clone https://github.com/stefantalpalaru/w_scan2.git
cd w_scan2
./configure
sudo lscpu | grep -E '^CPU\('
make -j 4
./w_scan2 --help
./w_scan2 -H

Here is the output: (the first 4 empty T2 muxes indicate upcoming change, or is it just glitch?

I have found another version of w_scan, yet to test ....w_scan_cpp
https://www.gen2vdr.de/wirbel/w_scan_cpp/index2.html

TSDuck/tsscan working great, another tool for blind scan, thank you. :(
default command did not find the T2 muxes again:

tsscan --adapter 0 --bandwidth 8000000 -u -l --show-modulation --verbose

but the one below did :)

tsscan --adapter 0 --bandwidth 8000000 -u -l --show-modulation --delivery-system DVB-T2 --verbose

I could not get "scan" working for blindscan :( - needs initial tuning data for at least one transponder/channel

RE: w_scan (20170107-2.1) DVB-T2 - Added by saen acro 4 days ago

No of this use blindscan
they use NIT table from muxes
or fixed 8 mhz step based on regional settings.

https://github.com/deeptho/blindscan
as you can see work on specific chip's
