Odroid N2 and internal DVB tuners

Taki this Wetek Play modul has 2 tuner but only one demod AVL6211. Second demod is onboard. That means only single tuner can be used with Odroid N2. Only issue is modul pinout. I order one to fix this as this is cheap option for dvb-s.

Not only cheaper, internal tuner are fully hw supported with minimal load to cpu.

mine was a mere recommendation. basis for this wetek tuner. but there is a different option as well as the SI2166D tuner that supports the dvb s2x. but no source code.SILC-S-A0001398498-1.pdf (58.4 KB)

Too expensive



80€ is ok for a FBC Tuner… but can these cards work with S922X? I think not…

Cheap version si2166d (support multistream )

ist aber auch nur ein dual tuner und die Frage ist ob man den eingebunden bekommt

but its only a dual tuner also, the question is if it works with the S922x chipset also

This tuner looks interesting.
We must know if it will have afl1 support.
And if it will be 100% functional.

Mut@nt HD51 DVB-S2X MultiStream Tuner uses Si2166 demod and RafaelMicro RT720 tuner. For SiliconLabs demod is avilable Si2183 driver as a superset of Si2166 from the same demod family and may be it’s compatible. But for tuner RT720 there is no source code.

is these USB tuners (PLEX PX-W3U4/Q3U4/W3PE4/Q3PE4) work with N2?

that is no usb tuner. we dont talk usb tuner in here. we talk about hw demuxer for new nim dvb-s2x tuner. for open source tuner DVB-S2x. all usb tuner must be works on N2.

Product Details

N2 + VTV board work fine for me.
I have no luck N2 with Wetek tuner. I know a little bit circuit. My N2 is smoked and burned at Q1. then usb no power no wifi no port on ethernet.

:sob: :sob: :sob:

I am really sorry. it is necessary to be very careful when combining
In fact, the connection volts are required for 1.2 volts. ams1117 has 3 leg and voltage can pick up where it can give no electronic knowledge. I think you lost 5v on board. it can be repair. Look your board and find which burned

You probably burn out NB679GD small SMD chip - 5V voltage regulator. As a workaround you can use 5V source from VTV board (group of 6 pogo pins) and connect it to pin 2 of Expansion Connector. But at first measure resitance for possible shortcut on pin 2…

There is another elegant alternative. These are SAT> IP tuners (search on amazon.de):

Telestar Digibit R1: 4 DVB-S2 tuners (Unicable support)
Telestar Digibit Twin: 2 DVB-S2 tuners (without Unicable support)

Note: These tuners do not have support for satellite antenna motor. They work very well with tvheadend server on any board or PC.

This devices dint connect amlogic transponder stream hw demuxer. We can talk hw tuner. But cheap method for network streamin.
