SkyStar2, DVBViewer Pro, and DiSEQc 1.2
Has anyone here gotten SkyStar2, DVBViewer Pro, and DiSEQc 1.2 to work successfully?
I am going to attempt to hook up my new computer, and SkyStar2 directly to my Birdview dish setup.
On that setup currently I have an Ecoda switch 22Khz off runs one 1x4 diseqc switch, and 22Khz on runs a second 1x4 diseqc switch for a total of 8 LNBs.
The "off" side has Ku on port 1, C on port 2 (using my GeoSat Pro C/Ku LNBf, DBS on port 3, and Hispasat linear on port 4.
The "on" side has a my multi-lnb setups ports 1-4 on 87/97, and 123/129 all universal LNBFs.
The dish mover currently is the GBox V3000 that I got from Sadoun. Great positioner!! So the real power to move the dish comes from that box. Just need sufficient power for the LNBFs and diseqc 1.2 capabilities.
It all works very well currently and have had at least 3 different STBs that it has worked with.
I have found one member on the DVBViewer forums who has gotten diseqc 1.2 to work, and wanted to know if others here might have gotten it to work?
The reason for going through all this trouble is the future. I'm tired of waiting on an STB that can do "all things" that we want.
If I can get it all to work with the SkyStar 2, I may then feel emboldened to purchase a better card that does 8psk, 4:2:2, etc. At the very least, I will be able to better utilize my HDTV with SD signals that fit the screen without distortion, plus watch the few real HDTV satellite signals that exist.
BTW, I like DVBViewer Pro! It isn't free, but is only $19.00 for a lifetime of upgrades. Version 3.9.2 is out now with a lot of bugs fixed and diseqc 1.2 built in.
The question is making it work with a SS2.
So help me out with some answers if you have them?
