Description

Hi,

The TechnoTrend CT-3650 CI USB card contains 2 tuners, one DVB-C and one DVB-T.

DVB-C (/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0) is identified as Philips TDA10023 DVB-C
DVB-T (/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend1) is identified as NXP TDA10048HN DVB-T

The problem is that only the first (frontend0) is shown in tvheadend, and I need to use the DVB-T tuner. If i manually rename the device drivers (frontend1 -> frontend0), tvheadend sees the correct tuner. That, however, will not survive reboots...

So I guess that the problem/bug is that tvheadend only identifies one (the first) frontend for each adapater. It should list all available fronteds for each adapter.

This is not a bug, it is (somewhere) explicitly stated that TVH will not work with such a setup. It will only work with adapters that have a single tuner OR have independent tuners for each each input (and can be configured to appear as separate adapters).

There did use to be an FR in for this, but as I can't seem to find it I'll simply move this into FR land.

Ok,

I'll see if I can do some udev magic to get the frontend renaming to be persistent across reboots.

Thanks,

I think short-term that is probably the only solution (though if you can't get udev working just a simple script in rc.local, or whatever the equiv is would do).
