Tvheadend does scan mux failed

  • hey. I’m using a RTL2832U USB Tv tuner. Here’s what I already did.

    -DVB tools

    -crazy cat

    -w_scan (works)


    however, mixes scanning results is always fail. Is it my USB tv tuner that is not working?


    But if w_scan starts to scan does it mean my tv tuner is working?

    If it’s not working, I’ve downloaded a firmware (.gz) I’m not sure how to install.

    Help would be appreciated!

  • Probably it will be easier to say what tuner you are using then just RTL2832U...

    Usually if the scan fails is either because there are no TV channels on that mux or you have poor reception..

    So if your tuner is recognized by tvheadend...start with creating a network for your area from the ready made

    pre defined muxes...then go back to your adaptor and assign that network..then scan.

    If it will fail try the Generic pre defined list (takes longer to scan)but has almost all dvb-t muxes included so you can t go wrong with that.

    It is just a generic tuner. i got it from tv-card-usb-wireless-transmission-receiver-ads-b-tuner-audio-computer-video-capture-rtl2832u-r820t-dvb-t-i.64917281.6700767213


    Also my tuner appears on tvheadend, so does it automatically means my tuner is supported?


    My area does not have a ready made pre-defined muxes. And my area is using dvb-t2.


    Or maybe i have to install some sort of drivers for it but i do not know how to.


    Thanks for replying though. :)

  • That tuner doesn t look like it supports dvb_t2...it should work with libreelec tough..I m sure i v seen it around before on other threads.

  • Does anyone have tips on how to select a tv tuner that is compatible? Also most of them need a driver but i have no idea how should i install it. Pretty new to Linux.


    :)

  • Depends on your H/W. If RPi2/3/4 then the RPI TV TV Hat is a no brainer and works out of the box.


    I also have a MyGica DVB-T2 which works on RPi's but cannot comment on other devices. Try searching the forum for known tuners.

  • I have a similar problem with my DVBSKY S960:


    On Raspberry pi 4 (9.1.502 fresh installation) the following happens:


    1) after boot everything works fine and the tuner scans muxes and services are found.

    2) after some time all scans fail with the following error msg:

    Ths happens for _all_ muxes from that point on.


    Any ideas?

  • I have Rpi 4 with libreelec and DVBSKY s960 and it also happens to me with an FTA mux

    in this mux there is only one channel if you scan it but only partially and it does not lower the channel

    only this mux gives me this probeam

    did you fix it?
