    HI, i have question about this patchset :

    I also have Terratec cinergy box (rev.4) and i have request if it is possible to integrate this patches for this group of DVB cards with "montage 3103b" demodulator ...

    Hi chewitt ok , maybe this is right direction , not many users have multiple pc in home

    - 1 . that quastion to add "Desktop Mode" is for me only for future purposes for big tv screens where in center could be videos stream, and in not occupied area we have something like wheater data rss monitoring ipsecurity cams, home automation area etc

    -2. Exactly , skin is for that

    -3. Could be improwed, especially remote phone apps for remote viewing content in same network

    -4. Now i know...

    ad 5 . is it possible to watch content from Kodi plugins sections Video/Music/Photo/TV over DLNA/Upnp on compatibile dlna/upnp like tv, audio network players etc.

    ad 6. do you plan support HBBTV ? or parse streams and web content to be in equal sections like ip-tv rss vod ip-radio etc ??web/widget ? this must be tv-pvr-backend independend...

    in this way this could be some like other smart tv system's try to be, for big screen people need big format content but in most stations is only 1080 format so way not to use httpc and tv to web browsing, check content from providers in desktop mode where kodi plugins could be desktop apps or desktop widgets, other apps could be installable from packages /snap etc, i know this be some resource hungry and today SBC's especially some exotic model have some limitations... hm :exclamation::idea:

    use that file and rename it to dvb-fe-ds3103.fw


    the file was renamed at the kernel sources -> crazycat uses the old name

    pls report if this works, if so i push a fix

    this not fixed this problem with fec 3/4 symbolrate 27500000

    I found this :

    updatelee / v4l-updatelee / Pull request #4: some fixes for Linux 4.9-rc6 — Bitbucket

    • [media] ds3000: Extended chip ident check. Thanks crazycat.
    • [media] dw2102: Combine SU3000 (and OEM) support. Thanks crazycat. fixes Geniatech SU3000 v3.0 hardware, by providing a method to detect Montage ds3000 or m88ds3103 demod. Then attaching the proper demod module. SU3000 v3.0 hardware has ts2022/m88ds3103 chips on board and the ds3000 module previously wasn't working with this hardware. We now attach the proper m88ds3103 demod for rev3, and ds3000 for the older versions.

    but when i tried compile this kernel i have this

    updatelee / v4l-updatelee / issues / #10 - compiling error. — Bitbucket


    Method for firmware uploading

    1. create directory /storage/my-firmware/lib/firmware

    ssh [email protected] ENTER / PASSWORD "libreelec" //default password

    mkdir /storage/my-firmware

    mkdir /storage/my-firmware/lib

    mkdir /storage/my-firmware/lib/firmware

    2. create file

    nano /storage/.cache/kernel-overlays/90-my-firmware.conf

    with code:


    / save file with ctrl+shift (:wq)

    3. copy firmware from other computer to libreelec:

    scp /path/to/dir/with/firmware/file/firmware_name.fw [email protected]:/storage/my-firmware/lib/firmware/

    ENTER / PASSWORD "libreelec" //default password

    reboot libreelec

    check /lib/firmware

    4. ssh [email protected] ENTER / PASSWORD "libreelec" //default password

    5. ls /lib/firmware

    if firmware is listed you done all ok


    today i tested on debian buster build from here "" and in demsg i have also this message even firmware dvb-fe-ds3103.fw is placed in /lib/firmware/ direcotory

    [ 263.718208] dw2102: su3000_power_ctrl: 1, initialized 1

    [ 263.810176] ds3k_firmware_ondemand: Waiting for firmware upload (dvb-fe-ds3103.fw)...

    [ 263.810178] ds3k_firmware_ondemand: Waiting for firmware upload(2)...

    [ 306.254962] ds3k_firmware_ondemand: Waiting for firmware upload (dvb-fe-ds3103.fw)...

    [ 306.254965] ds3k_firmware_ondemand: Waiting for firmware upload(2)...

    i tried your method and i don't see this firmware in /lib/firmware folder after restart pc, before i tried firmware from openelec dvb-firmware repository with original name dvb-fe-ds3103.fw , if libreelec have specified DIR for firmware files in this location "/storage/.config/firmware this mechanism for firmware location not working in latest build... or something else is not this way...

    Perhaps this firmware >> dvb-fe-ds3103.fw file is missing in /lib/firmware/ in x86_64 build and even not uploading to this place from /storage/.config/firmware/ copied before via ssh/scp, in newest build from today and previous alpha, How to copy this firmware manually ??

    Hi, I have Terratec Cinergy S2 USB rev.4 and only with alpha 7 and newest dev build from Millhouse with Crazy Cat dvb drivers device almost properly working except some transponders with 3/4 FEC , same issue post #95, i don't tested this step by step transponder by transponder fec by fec symbol rate but channels with fec 3/4 and symbol rate 27500 have many errors "BER" and watching is immposible, i checked on dmesg output and device is attached but something is maybe with message "ds3k_firmware_ondemand: Waiting for firmware upload (2) "dvb-fe-ds3103.fw" and message "usb 1-2: DVB: adapter 0 frontend 0 frequency 0 out of range (95000..2150000), I tested this card on 3 antenas with diseqc and without, also maybe firmware or drive not supporting some features dvbs2 specification. I know driver for this card is fresh...also tested minisatip with no luck...
