Re: How to add DVB-S2 support to firedtv?

2010-02-26 Thread Beat Michel Liechti
Hi there

I own a FireDTV S2 and I'm willing to invest some time. I poked around
in the driver code previously and I might do some coding given that I
have access to the required technical information. 

As far as I know Digital Everywhere is out of business - does this mean
that the NDAs are no longer in effect and that someone could give me the
technical documentation required? 

Cheerio

 Hi,
 
 Regarding the documentation and code:
 From a quick glance, the LNB/QPSK2 code follows the documentation fairly good.
 I guess it could do with a deeper check (I could see that at least the FEC 
 switch case does seems to have some invalid values) but I would prefer
 that this is done by someone that actually has a DVB-S(2) card.

  Hi all,
 
  what steps need to be taken to get DVB-S2 support into the firedtv
  driver?  (The status is, as far as I understood:  FireDTV S2 and Floppy
  DTV S2 devices recognize HD channels during channel scan but cannot tune
  to them.  FireDTV C/CI DVB-C boxes however tune and play back HD
  channels just fine.)
 
  I suppose the frontend needs to be extended for s2api.  Was there a
  respective conversion in another DVB driver that can serve as a good
  coding example?
 
  Is documentation from Digital Everywhere required regarding the
  vendor-specific AV/C requests (LNB_CONTROL? TUNE_QPSK2?) or is the
  current driver code enough to connect the dots?
 
  Is the transport stream different from DVB-C HD streams so that changes
  to the isochronous I/O part would be required?
