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
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,
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
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
Is there anything I can do?
Thanks in advance for any help.
