Dear Patrick,

changes in "sources.conf" are IIRC only necessary if you have a DiSEqC 
configuration controlled by VDR. But using a/the generic sources.conf doesn't 
harm VDR operation, I guess most users do have one without DiSEqC. And well, 
"diseqc.conf" does IMHO explain by itself it's function.

With SAT>IP you don't use DiSEqC and it is from my understanding not foreseen 
to distinguish within the SAT>IP clients configuration between different 
orbital positions. SAT>IP specs do cover several positions but managed by the 
SAT>IP server. In your case one Octopus Net mainboard holding all of your flex 
modules and VDR is asking for the different positions by using the different 
channel.conf entries.

You may use a workaround by using CAID field for specific adapter:

But I do not now if it is possible to cover more than 4 devices and no good 
idea how to tie a SAT>IP device always to the same number.

Betreff: [vdr] SatIP>plugin: how to configure 2 DD Octopus NETs with different 


I have 2 DD Octopus NET devices. One is a 2x DVB-S(2) + 2x DVB-T(2) (let's call 
it AA) and the other one is 4x DVB-S(2) (BB).

AA's satellite orientation is Astra 28.2, BB's one is Astra 19.2.

How can I associate AA's or BB's inputs in VDR's configuration so that it uses 

  1) the right input for the right source

  2) the maximum number of devices in parallel for recording,
     epg-scanning etc.

conf.d/50-satip.conf contains 


I found discussions where they say that in sources.conf one needs to assigned 
device numbers, so I tried:

  S19.2E 1 Astra 1KR/1L/1M/2C
  S19.2E 2 Astra 1KR/1L/1M/2C
  S19.2E 3 Astra 1KR/1L/1M/2C
  S19.2E 4 Astra 1KR/1L/1M/2C
  S28.2E 5 Astra 1N/2A/2F
  S28.2E 6 Astra 1N/2A/2F

This isn't working, it seems that even for S28.2 channels it selects the 

Then I changed the diseqc.conf to

  1 2 3 4:
  S19.2E  11700 V  9750  t v W15 [E0 10 38 F0] W15 A W15 t
  S19.2E  99999 V 10600  t v W15 [E0 10 38 F1] W15 A W15 T
  S19.2E  11700 H  9750  t V W15 [E0 10 38 F2] W15 A W15 t
  S19.2E  99999 H 10600  t V W15 [E0 10 38 F3] W15 A W15 T

  5 6:
  S28.2E  11700 V  9750  t v W15 [E0 10 38 F4] W15 B W15 t
  S28.2E  99999 V 10600  t v W15 [E0 10 38 F5] W15 B W15 T
  S28.2E  11700 H  9750  t V W15 [E0 10 38 F6] W15 B W15 t
  S28.2E  99999 H 10600  t V W15 [E0 10 38 F7] W15 B W15 T

Didn't help.

Is there anything I can do? 

Thanks in advance for any help.
