I think that does not matter. If the tvheadend server is asked for three different channels of the same transponder, then tvheadend uses a single tuner, and they also work very well with 4K channels (tested in Digibit R1).
SAT>IP tuners have the advantage that they are not wired or physically connected to the tvheadend server (except the ethernet cable) and can be located anywhere and does not depend on the hardware where tvheadend is installed.
But you’re right, tvheadend only manages the use of SAT>IP tuners and priority, descramble if necessary, cleans and filters the streams (language, teletext, subtitles, etc.), restream with the chosen container (htsp, mp4, ts, matroska, …), and manages the timeshift and recordings.
Sorry for my english bad
I use the Mecool K-series internal DVB tuner, I am properly welding your diagram. But tvheadend does not detect dvb tune .
- dvb latest
Thank you .
Thanks for this very nice topic
I don’t own an Odroid N2 but a pair of orangePI and a pair of K1pro and would like to ask a few questions:
1 Where can we get the tuner alone
2 Is the K1 pro still useable without the tuner
3 Any chance to try this on an orange PI
4 Could the K1 pro work with 2 tuners
Of course I could try but your advice can spare me a lot of time
After much follow up on this topic. I made a decision but would like certainty if possible.
The idea is to use the DVB-S2X / S2 / S TV tuner box Mecool M8S PLUS DVB + Odroid N2.
The connection is made to the DVB-S2X / S2 / S TV tuner of the Mecool M8S PLUS box and the same is done on the KI Pro tuner.
I would like to use only the DVB-S2X / S2 / S TV tuner Mecool M8S PLUS + Odroid N2
This topic is about Odroid N2 Extension Connector and possibility connect i2c DVB tuner. Another option is USB DVB tuner and it’s acceptable for any CE box (e.g. Mecool KI Pro).
- You can buy Khadas VTV board.
- Yes, second have to be USB DVB tuner.
Sorry @erbas , I don’t understand your question. If you mean MECOOL M8S Plus DVB-S-S2, this box is unsupported by CE.
In fact the idea is to use only the tuner of it!
The DVB-S2X tuner and connect the same on the Odroid N2.
Exactly how it was done with KI pro in the first post.
If the process will be the same?
This is a single board box, you can’t dettach dvb tunner. You can use it as a tvheadend server.
Please let me know pin number on wetek play2 tuner.
Read first post.
Hint: Wetek Play2 - WP2.
…in my memory, this is a USB card and has nothing to do with this Tread…
The company who created vtv-Tuner can also deliever Dvb-s2x Tuners…it is only a thing of order quantities…2 solution can be chosen,the Availink 6261c(well known from Edision 4k Stb) or the Montage M88RS6060 demod…problem is, for both demods are no linux driver available at moment…another tuner to abuse…,it have no Dvb-S2x,but support,all other things like 32Apsk,Acm,Vcm ,low Sr ,Multistream and PLS can be received .Open source drivers for Stv91x and Stv6120 are still available and this NIM is also a twin tuner…https://wiki.batc.org.uk/Serit_tuner
This is good news.
I just bought usb TBS5520SE because of the X extension.
It has terrestrial ISDB-T for my country.
But I’m not out of this. @Dvb-Freak
It is possible to leave here the specifications of the models available for sale, all details, as values. Or maybe create a new topic.

Tvheandend sees vtv, but there is no picture. Please help. Corelelec latest nightly.
I managed it myself
At first read How to report an issue you’re having with CoreELEC.
Partial logs are in most cases useless.
Use recommended dtb (g12b_a311d_odroid_n2_dvb.dtb).
Double check wiring. Wiring for I2C is correct as VTV board was detected, but for transfering stream have to be correctly connected DVB_D0, DVB_CLK, DVB_SYNC and DVB_VALID pins.
What does mean ‘no picture’?
Have you tried scan channels in TVHeadend?
Excuse my ignorance, but I have
this old DVB tuner from a PC. Could it work with the N2?
