Geniatech Mygica HDStar DVB-S2 USB HD not working

  • ds3k driver is better than ds3000 but still it is not same quality like windowz driver

    tested with su3000 v2.1

  • Hi,

    Vendor sent to me new driver and there is support for DS3103B

    I don't have V3.0 hardware i can't test for it

    But still I can't watch high bitrate channels with v2.1 board

    i think it is related to usb bandwidth problem of linux

  • when I checked ds3000_firmware.h I found ds3103 firmware have completely different from old ones

    old firmwares(ds300x/ds3103) header starts with 0x83, 0x01, 0x00, 0x30

    new one header starts with 0x8a, 0x11, 0x11, 0x28

    if the problem is caused by the wrong firmware loading but I dont know

    does vendor driver upload firmware from ds3000_firmware.h or /lib/firmware/dvb-fe-ds3103.fw(old header)

  • Hi CvH,

    I have a Geniatech HDStar device which I bought around March 2018. I've failed to get it working with Linux. I think it probably has the 3103B chip, but I'm not certain (see my earlier post here). I ran your build with the crazycat drivers and have attached the log. I couldn't see the adapter listed in TVHeadend, but I'm not very familiar with that software, since I normally use MythTV.



  • The dev build above, with CrazyCat drivers enabled in add-ons->services, and a "B" chip mygica HDStar is working for me! Watching DVB-S on LibreElec for the first time.

    CrazyCat, CvH - thanks so much for your hard work on this one!

  • I can't wait to go back home and try it. Once I put my hands on my Technotrend I'll report back here. But I'm afraid that because on my device the chip is different (B version) but has the same device ID as the old one it will cause a problem. What do you think CvH?

  • Looks like ds3103 B revision use same firmware from m88rs6000

    Maybe ds3103b is alike from m88rs6000 but without built-in tuner

    Modifying in kernel m88rs6000 code may can work

    and if it will work we will get mainline kernel support
