Currently, I have a CablestaCablestar 2 USB to view my DVB-C channels on Vero 4K with Tvheadend.
But I need a new one to watch DVB-C channels. Wich adapter do you recommend? The OSMC branded DVB-T2 works on DVB-C channels?
Yes – the OSMC dongle supports DVB-C. We don’t advertise this feature because it is not commonly used as DVB-C is usually encrypted.
Thanks a lot @grahamh and @sam_nazarko for the quick reply.
Can I use two ou three dongles at the same time (on the same Vero 4K) to use multiple clients (i.e. Raspberry Pi with OSMC and TVHeadend PVR)?
If you use more than one dongle, I recommend you use a powered USB hub. TVHeadend would run on the device with the dongles. All other client devices just need the TVHeadend (HTS) plug-in.
Thanks a lot.
That is still be useful information to have displayed in the store, as not everyone needs encrypted channels. There are quite a few unencrypted channels in germany for example.
Same in Portugal, on NOS provider.
I’ve updated the store page to reflect that DVB-C is supported.
Thanks for your advice. I did not know that there were free to air DVB-C signals.
I’m having poor signal quality issues with this dongle.
When I use other USB Tuners (like Cablestar) I don’t have that issues, connected on the same cable.
Do you recommend use a powered USB HUB to give a boost on the dongle?
Are you using DVB-T or DVB-C?
You should use a powered hub for best results; the dongle is power hungry.
I’m going to buy a powered hub from your store to check if it resolves the issue.
