Hi all,

I recently got a USB adapter "Astrometa DVB-T2" that I would like to use with 
VDR. It comprises two frontends:

/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0: Realtek RTL2832 (DVB-T)
/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend1: Panasonic MN88473 (DVB-T2 and DVB-C)

Apart from these files, in /dev/dvb/adapter0 I can see the following:
demux0 dvr0 net0

It seems to me that the dvbdevice.c of VDR 2.3.8 assumes that all these files exist for all frontends. But there is no demux1, dvr1, or net1 on my system.

That's right, VDR assumes that if there is a frontend1 there is also demux1
and dvr1.

In dvbdevice.h, I think that the macros DEV_VIDEO, DEV_DVB_VIDEO, DEV_DVB_AUDIO 
are unused and the definitions could be removed.

DEV_DVB_VIDEO is still used by the dvb[sh]ddevice plugins.

Sorry, I should have thought of output plugins. rpihddevice does not refer to any of these.

For cDvbTuner::SetFrontend() the cDvbTuner::adapter and cDvbTuner::frontend are already fixed. For my device, frontend0 should only be valid for DVB-T, while frontend1 is valid for DVB-T2 and DVB-C. How to handle these known-invalid combinations? By 'return true'?  Or should I rather hack cDvbTuner so that it opens a file descriptor for each frontend, and then chooses the appropriate one in cDvbTuner::SetFrontend() based on frontendType?

Which devices does VDR create at startup?
Please post the related log entries.

Attached are two complete logs from /var/log/messages for plain VDR 2.3.8 startup.

On both startup attempts, channels.conf (attached) contains only DVB-T2 entries, and the default channel is free-to-view (YLE TV1 HD). The channels.conf was converted by dvb-format-convert version 1.12.3:
dvb-format-convert -I DVBV5 -O VDR dvb_channel.conf channels.conf

The first attempt is with the /dev/dvb/adapter0 as is. VDR expectedly claims that it cannot tune to the channel with the DVB-T frontend.

The second startup is for a tweak where I removed /dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0 and renamed frontend1 to frontend0. On this startup, VDR will not complain anything, but it will not find any signal either. It properly detects the MN88473, but perhaps improperly claims that it provides DVB-T along with DVB-T2 and DVB-C.

I think we should try to first fix the scenario of the second startup. I tried to read the output of

strace dvbv5-zap -a 0 -f 1 -c dvb_channel.conf 'YLE TV1 HD' -r

but I did not find anything special (or did not know what to look for).

Side note: I got the idea of renaming frontend1 to frontend0 from a forum post where it appeared to work for some DVB-C users:
https://www.vdr-portal.de/forum/index.php?thread/129861-gel%C3%B6st-problem-mit-hybrid-dvb-usb-stick-mit-zwei-frontends/

Best regards,
