Hauppauge wintv dualhd on Vero 4k+ - just one tuner

#1

Hi all,

I just unpacked Vero4k+, Installed TVHeadEnd, plugged Hauppauge WinTV DualHD, and I see only one tuner. Is there any dirty trick to enable both tuners? It worked flawlessly on my OdroidC2 with CoreElec.

And thank you for fantastic support!

Can you upload a log so we can see if the tuner is being recognised?

Looks like an SI2168 based device.
Might need to update the driver. This can be a bit risky as it can break things; but we can take a look at it. Can you upload dmesg log from ODROID so I can compare?

http://ix.io/1qKT … Also if you could guide me how to enable OSMC Wifi dongle on Odroid, it would be very helpful. I’m bit struggling there. I need to install at least powershell to get around bash :)…

I will look in to adding support for your TV dongle.
The OSMC WiFi dongle uses an MT7610U module. The source is here: https://github.com/osmc/mt7610u

It needs to be compiled and added by the distro developer.

Thank you Sam! Would you be so kind and create a pull request to CoreElec? I’m noobie when it comes to Linux drivers https://github.com/CoreELEC/CoreELEC

Hmm, it looks like the OSMC Wifi adapter does not work on Vero 4k+ either (same CPU as Odroid C2). I bought it as I believed it works (based on description “It sports full compatibility with all OSMC supported devices”).

We don’t include the module for Vero 4K, but I can add it if you’d like. The reasoning is that the internal adapter is better than the external one. So we want users to use the internal.

Edit: I think the CE guys have picked the driver

THX Sam for info! it would be great if it made it into CE. I’ll wait for some time :). I spent entire day learning Linux (and it’s a pain a bit). I’ve been Microsoft guy forever, doing automation in PowerShell, and this really bites :slight_smile: .THX for all this great support.

From my current experience sofar:

  1. Vero 4k + is awesome device. I love design, I love remote (it’s so easy to navigate with it)
  2. I replaced default sking with Confluence. Even I played default skin for some time, I experienced some hangs when watching live TV (streamed from Odroid)
  3. I tried to tune some channels with that Hauppauge mentioned above, and it does not work. I guess you are working on it, big thanks for that! I believe those working drivers are from CrazyCat
  4. From now, I’m recommending Vero 4k+ to all my friends…

Did driver make it into December update? If not, would it be possible to compile some for me? Thank you, and happy new year!

Edit: I plugged the TV Tuner into TV. Just one adapter is displayed, but now it was able to tune TV stations.

Logs are here if you are interested: https://paste.osmc.tv/katajaziyo

Edit2: Picture and audio is not playing fluently. Stops/Resumes. I guess there are some driver issues or something. I’ll plug that dongle back to Odroid. I guess I’ll dedicate some Raspberry Pi with OSMC :slight_smile: for TVHeadEnd server. THX for all folks!

I didn’t get a chance to look at this yet, but it’s still on the list

Hi

CE should add support for the WiFi dongle shortly. I can see they’ve added our driver.

I’m still working on adding support for more tuners

Cheers

Sam
