    Many thanks for your response.


    I was using a RPi3 with 8.2.4 (linux 4.9.80) which was using the dvb-demod-m88ds3103.fw (the B frmware). I upgraded to 9.2.4 and lost the HD channels.


    Thanks your advice. I have download various nightly image for the RPi2. The 2020 10 03 and worked with my TV via HDMI but would not connect to Wifi, but works fine on Ethernet. I use tvheadend, downloaded from the nightlies, 9.80.6.123 (4.2.8-36) worked fine but did not find any channels on the muxes. Showed a reasonable signal.


    I tried the RPi2 images for 4,5,6,7,8,9,10 October. On the RPi 3B connected via HDMI to a Samsung TV but none got beyond the basic boot screen. I did not connect to Ethernet to see if it was just an HDMI problem. Happy to try again with these or other builds if this is useful.

    The Chris Lee Update on Unbuntu x86 gives slightly different output on dw2102 but seams to work ok for both std and HD channels.

    Many thanks for the reply. Thats where I started from I used this firmware with 9.2.4 libreelec but it would not work with the HD channels. It only worked with the crazycat TBS driver but not HD. Which is why I was looking for a way around this. Hopefully libreelec this will be addressed in a later release of libreelec. I may see if I can build a libreelec with the UpdateLee DW1202 driver.


    I have compared the firmware with md5sum and it is the same. So comfortable I am using the same stuff.

    Thanks for the reply,


    It is still work in progress as I want to test with the x86 before seeing what I can do to get the RPi to work with HD.


    Overnight, I compiled the ChrisLeeUpdate , built the kernel and modules, this is running on the Unbuntu with 5.4 kernel. I think his build was probably built for debian as that is what the Readme for the build suggested.


    It runs with HD channels working. Reports

    "Montage Technology M88DS3103"

    firmware version 3.B


    I will delete it and install from scratch and maybe just build the module I need and not the whole kernel and tree.


    No decided whether to go with unbuntu, raspbian or Debian for the RPi, but will probably try ChrisLeeUpdate first.

    I decided to get unbuntu working on an x86 laptop first and then once thats working try the RPi.


    I installed Unbuntu (kernel 5.4) on x86 and added Brad Loves ppa and installed the tvheadend.


    I had to add dvb-fe-ds3000.fw


    Ubuntu kernel + LinuxTV media tree + Hauppauge patches : Brad Love


    Install tvheadend on Ubuntu 18.04 server | LinTut


    Runs and recognised the HDSTAR DVB S2 the device, tvheadend recognises the device and scans showing signal but does not find any services.


    I suspect I am not doing this correctly


    I think I should try re-instaling Unbuntu and using the CrazyCat media instead. This works on RPi Libreelec 9.2.4 (dvb-fe-ds3103.fw) except for the HD channels.


    After a virgin install of unbuntu, how should I add and build Crazy Cat's media, I assume its ok to install tvheadend server as above.

    I have a RPi 3B, Libreelec 9.2.4 (Kernel 4.19.127 July 2020) enable Crazy Cat TBS drivers in Add-ons and add TVheadend server 4.3 9.2.0.122


    I added the dvb-fe-ds3103 firmware from firmware.zip


    Scan (Freesat 28.2 Astra) and works ok on standard channels.


    However HD channels do not work.


    What is the consensus is there a solution using libreelec or do I need to move to Unbuntu?


    Is there a patch for the Crazy Cat TBS or V4L media drivers add-on in libreelec 9.2.4 Rpi3


    Use media_tree dw2102.patch.txt (m88ds3103) dvd-demod-m88ds3103b.fw and Brad Love patches?


    Use Updatelee's drivers from Chris Lee / v4l-updatelee with a Kernel 5.4.30?
