Ticket #10699: Channel Scanner cannot acces DVB-S2 card

#10699: Channel Scanner cannot acces DVB-S2 card

Severity: high | Keywords: Channel Scanner
Ticket locked: 0 | broken
------------------------------------------+--------------------------------
Channels which are allready scanned are visible with live TV. A scan for
new channels is not possible as the mythtv-setup tells me that the card is
not accessible.
In mythtv-setup.log I get

May 6 18:39:47 server mythtv-setup[24769]: E CoreContext cardutil.cpp:404
(ProbeDVBType) Can't open DVB frontend (/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0) for
/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0.

On the same card it is possible to watch live TV and to make recordings.

Comment:

Have you shut down the backend before trying to scan?
Are you running mythtv-setup using the same user as mythbackend?

I'm unable to reproduce and I strongly suspect that this is a permissions
issue. This isn't a support forum, so I suggest taking this to the mythtv-
users mailing list or IRC channel.

Comment (by info@…):

i have the same problem. I have checked the rights and they are ok. I even
added my current user to the video and mythtv group. Also tried to run
mythtv-setup with sudo.
Now upgraded to MythTV 0.26 but still the same problem. On my old
installation (MythTV0.23) everything worked perfectly fine! I'm even
considering about changing back... :/

Another case of this, perhaps?

Comment (by info@…):

Hey Thanks for the help! I already tried running "femon -H -aX" (femon -H
-a0) but that doesn't seem to work... I get this:
Problem retrieving frontend information: Operation not supported
status | signal 0% | snr 0% | ber 0 | unc 1872361544 |

I did manage to get live-tv working a few hours ago by restoring an old
backup from my previous setup MythTV0.23 and upgrading it to the new
database scheme, but the DVB-S2 still isn't working on Astra 3 (23.5E).
Sometimes I get channel lock and tv plays well, sometimes it doesn't...
Strange... Everything worked perfectly fine before on MythTV0.23, I even
replaced the DVB card just to be sure it isn't hardware related (I have 2
exactly the same cards where one is a spare).
I use the Technotrend S2 3200 budget card.

Comment (by J.Pilk@…):

#11403 continued the same theme and seemed to have tracked down a real fix
- but it might not be quite the same problem. Good luck.
