hi I appear to be having the same issue as known on the Vero 4k on a Raspberry pi
i’m trying to Setup TvHeadend and it only reports the Realtek RTL2832 DVB-T Tuner but no DVB-T2 Tuner, it appears to be manifesting the same way as these threads
I’ve just received my OSMC DVB-T2 but it’s not finding many channels except for the following channels:
Just installed my new Dongle to my Vero 4k.
After the usual initial struggles I now have it working with the HTSP PVR Client and can access Tvheadend 4.2.2. from a web browser to configure it.
However it shows as a DVB-T and not a T2 device and cannot resolve the HD Channels from my local transmitter.
Could you confirm that the supplied dongle is as advertised - “Watch free to air DVB-T2 channels” and advise how to convince the Vero 4K box that it is a DVB-T2 device.
which appears to be a known issue on the Vero 4K is it the Same on the Pi? any workaround or resolution yet?
I’m trying to Receive from Crystal Palace but not able to tune anything from the DVB-T Tuner.
Please upload a log via My OSMC.
The tuner has been working on Vero and Pi for a while now.
Thanks that’s super quick response,
I’m pretty new to the whole HTPC thing so might be bumbling around so apologies if i’m not helping myself.
Your log shows the tuner is being detected: DVB: registering adapter 0 frontend 1 (Sony CXD2837ER DVB-T/T2/C demodulator)…
which is good.
It’s likely a configuration issue as
@grahamh has covered above. Crystal Palace needs a manual retune unfortunately.
@grahamh and @sam_nazarko Thanks for your super quick help.
I had read through the first 2 posts you linked but not the Third. which of course contained the fix was looking for.
for any one else who finds this. it was:
Please ssh into the vero and issue the following commands:
sudo systemctl stop tvheadend
sudo systemctl start tvheadend
Then go into the webui and see if the sony tuner has appeared.
Configure only the Sony DVB-T tuner and ignore the Realtek one.
Yes, I think the trick is to step away from the Realtek tuner when you first install the stick. I’ll add it to the Wiki.
I had the same problem and I waste several hours convinced that I had a problem in my antenna installation a good idea would be useful to send any kind of user’s guide in order to help novices users unless via email.
There is a guide under the Wiki section
I would recemend that you test the tuner on a seperat linux box.
Try on kernel 4.2 or higher!
dvb-t2 was added to mainline kernel in version 4.2, so update if possible.
This thread is very old and the issue has since been solved.
