Only 4 PCTV461e on Synology 216+II NAS ?

Postby mhoppe1 » Fri Sep 01, 2017 9:42 am

I am running DVBLink on my DS216+II NAS with 4 PCTV461e Sticks attached.
Due to a HW-failure I had to exchange the NAS to a new one (same type) with unfortunately the latest DSM version.
Reinstalled DVBLink Server and Source and everything worked as expected - except the fact that all(!) ZDF - HD channels and most other HD channels now show discontinuity errors if there is more than one channels received on each single PCTV461e stick (seems there is some USB issue on the Synology side).
So changed the max channels (FTA/encrypted) to 1 for each source but now be in need of a 5th Stick for recording.
So added the 5th Stick, DS recognizes it but not the DVBLink Source software. Tried different Ports, Different types of USB - Hubs - I can't get it to work.

Anyone a good idea ?

The 4 usb tuners are limitation by NAS.
I may suggest you to sell all these usb tuners and buy some kinda of sat2ip receiver, which usually have 2-4 or even 8 and more tuners inside one box.
