TV-Mosaic and Hauppauge WinTV-dualHD

Post by klosz007 » Mon Sep 16, 2019 1:20 pm

Hi,

I'm considerning switchover from currently used watching software (DVBViewer) to TV Mosaic. It's not because I think TV Mosaic is better overall but because TV Mosaic has much better dedicated clients for Android/Android TV and iOS.

However I cannot make WinTV-dualHD tuner work under TV Mosaic. It is able to scan and play all DVB-T channels but is not able to scan/see any of the DVB-C channels.
Initially I had the same problem with DVBViewer, I contacted their support and they told me there is a special tweak in config files required for this tuner to work under DVBViewer. It's because this tuner's driver needs Symbol Rate provided in symbols/sec rather than default kilosymbols/sec (so it it needs 6900000 as the SR value, not 6900).

Now the question is if the same tweak is possible for TV Mosaic.
I'm going to use it together with TBS5881 tuner which needs standard value of 6900 so it cannot be a global tweak, only per-tuner is acceptable.

No interest from TV Mosaic support into acquiring new TV Mosaic customer ?

You might have better luck emailing them tvmosaic@dvblogic.com

You could also look into NextPVR. It is a similar solution.

Hi,

I sent them an email.
I tried NextPVR once but it is fairly basic and has no dedicated clients.
I tried TVHeadend on Ubuntu too, it has no dedicated clients either and it is fairly buggy although option-rich and very configurable.
As a backend I find DVBViewer superior of all but it does not have good clients as TV Mosaic. Actually Kodi or MrMC is the only option on platforms other than Windows.
On the other hand TV Mosaic does not want to work with this Hauppauge tuner.

I can't speak to iOS clients but NextPVR does have an Android client:

I use the same tuner but only for OTA and didn't have to change anything. I ditched my cable company completely.
