Re: Pi Zero simulating USB hub (class 9) device

Fair enough, i kind of expected that. I read specifications for couple chips used in USB hubs, some of them "allow" to program a different VID and PID than default into an "external" eeprom. Any idea if any cheap, freely available usb hub one supports it? It's hard to find information on this. So fa...

No ideas, or not possible, at least currently or without some kernel code changes?

Re: Pi Zero simulating USB hub (class 9) device

I need to emulate a class 9 device, an USB hub with my custom VID and PID. I have storage, serial etc working just fine but even if i write 0x09 into bDeviceClass it's just ignored.

Pi Zero simulating USB hub (class 9) device

I'm looking for a ways to simlulate/emulate a class 9 usb device, USB hub essentially with Pi Zero using libcomposite or something similar. Is it even possible?

Re: MiniSub - HTML5 SubSonic Player

Make sure you're adding a SubSonic server URL as http://ip or hostname:port. I've had the same issues if i skipped the http:// part.

Re: Rasberry as DreamBox? Network version.

I heard that people are doing this on some routers that are still less powerful than Pi. As long as you're not gonna try to software decode (no idea if it's even possible) these channels it should be just fine.

Re: Daemontools install on raspbmc?

From what i remember (don't have any DVD .iso image atm) XBMC can play those files directly, without mounting them. Try browsing them from file manager within XBMC.

What do you mean by stream exacly? If you're talking about watching streams from twitch.tv then there's a plugin for XBMC that should work just fine on Pi.

That's different goal. I'd like to have my Pi to work as both PVR and streaming server 24/7. I do have 2 HTPCs running OpenELEC with Live TV support so i'd like to connect to tvheadend (preferably) on Pi to stream channels to those HTPC clients. I simly cannot understand why there's so many issues w...

Re: Rasberry as DreamBox? Network version.

Thanks Arcain! Has anybody run into 'broken pipe' errors in TvHeadend? When does this errors occur? If during streaming it might be due to tuner loosing power. Pi gives max 100mA on USB ports instead of standard 500mA. In that case you might need an USB hub with external power. I haven't seen that ...

Re: Rasberry as DreamBox? Network version.

What's the way to go when compiling for Arch Linux? I've seen a number of methods to compile for Debian, but none for Arch. E.g. what packages should you install before compiling TvHeadend? BTW, has TvHeadend moved from Git repo? In fact on Arch you need to install gcc (and it's dependancies) and y...

Re: Rasberry as DreamBox? Network version.

Obviously I don't know what exact hardware setup you're using, but it might be worth investigating other options than the distro being used. I ordered a IT9135 based one to check if it changes anything. Should be able to try it next week. In fact i actually have a reception issues here, especially ...

Re: Rasberry as DreamBox? Network version.

Maybe it's my tuner after all. I heard that devices based on IT9135 chipset (yours) are more sensitive and get better signal strength than RTL2832U which is the one i own. That still makes me wonder why on different computer or different software (vdr or mumudvb) i get better reception and less arti...

Re: Rasberry as DreamBox? Network version.

So how's tvheadend works for you? How's your signal strength, tuner and distro? Does it buffer and trash the screen with often artifacts like in my case or it's clear and perfect?

Re: Rasberry as DreamBox? Network version.

It depends on distro you're using and goals you'd like to achieve. If you're using ArchLinux and got a compatibile tuner, then it might work almost out of the box. ArchLinux kernel is build with support for DVB with modules for all the hardware supported by kernel. Otherwise, you'll have to find dri...

Re: Options for transcode/streaming to Pi

MythTV could do ok, just without MySQL on the same machine. I found MuMuDVB handling streams quite well so if you don't need a PVR and need Live TV only you might want to try it. XBMC was able to play its streams fine, same for VLC, almost no artifacts, no buffering, no problems with sound. MuMu use...

Re: Rasberry as DreamBox? Network version.

Did one more try since even routers with OpenWRT/DDWRT are able to stream DVB properly. This time i used MuMuDVB as backend. Surprisingly most of the issues i faced before are non-existant here. Sounds perfect, there are still some artifacts, but there are very rare, doesn't buffer at all. Stream pl...

Re: Options for transcode/streaming to Pi

It's worse on MythTV. Backend along with MySQL is using 100% Pi CPU most of the time. Sound cracks, artifacts on the screen, unplayable. Not sure, maybe another tuner and/or antena would help but i'm out of options and really not in position to buy another stuff just to check, especially that the sa...

Managed to get MythTV to work. Can't say it was a pleasure since it's horrible to configure, especially with X over SSH being damn slow. Sadly, it's even worse that with TvHeadend.

Re: Rasberry as DreamBox? Network version.

From what i saw they have some problems with starting the kernel on Pi and moving to Raspbian. It'll take them a while to recompile all the packages and make it semi-usable. Might be worth checking out later.

Re: Rasberry as DreamBox? Network version.

Well, streaming from Dreambox (gstreamer) does not decode the video, just demuxes the wanted .ts stream from the main, so this is lightweight and surely Raspberry has the power to do so fluently. It's not as lightweight as you think. I'm trying to get my DVB-T tuner to work on 2 distos already. On ...

Well, managed to get tuner to work. Recompiled kernel again disabling any frontend available there. Tvheadend finally sees the stick, but it's still unusuable, at least with tvheadend. It's better than with what i had on Raspbian, buffers every 15-20 seconds instead of 3-5, but it's still impossible...
