DBS Bandstacked - support: Is it possible to adapt this to Unicable(EN50494)?

Added by Anders R about 7 years ago

Hi!
I found out that John Klimek has added functionality for DBS Bandstacked LNBF.
(https://www.lonelycoder.com/redmine/projects/tvheadend/repository/revisions/285cf87671c7a1697730ad22830a06edbcfd86d6)

Is it possible to adapt this for use w/ Unicable(SatCR)?
Unicable-support is included in both VDR and Mythtv - and I'd love it in TvHeadend too.

If someone that understands this stuff can submit a PR then yes. But the above commit was user submitted, it was not added by one of the developers. Unfortunately those of us that have taken over the day to day dev work are limited in our knowledge. We are trying to learn but are relying heavily on outside help (or people to join the team).

Anders,

I'm really sorry but I'm not familiar with Unicable and how it relates to DBS Bandstacking. For North America, DBS Bandstacking is "simply" adjusting tuning frequencies so it was easy to implement but it looks like Unicable is a bit more complicated (i.e. it appears to send different DiSEqC commands and a lot of other differences).

I think to get this properly supported we would need a developer with access to a Unicable system. I wouldn't be able to do this myself but if somebody wanted to give it a try I would definitely help in any way possible ...
