USB Tuner Not Found on New NAS

Postby paul608085 » Tue Oct 04, 2016 8:29 pm

I have recently bought a new NAS, a Netgear ReadyNAS 214 to replace a ReadyNAS 104. The 214 is running the latest OS, (v6.5.2), with DVBLink Server and TV Source both v6.0.0 build 13314. My SAT>IP server is detected and works well, however the Hauppauge WinTV-Nova-TD dual DVB-T USB tuner is not being detected in Sources > TV Sources. I have tried stopping and starting DVBLink and also rebooting the ReadyNAS. I am aware that the 214 does not appear on the DVBLink "Supported" list, but I used the same installation file on the 214 that I had used on the 104, so it should work shouldn't it? I notice that the RN104 has one USB2.0 port, (front), and two USB 3.0 ports, (rear), - whereas the RN214 three USB 3.0 ports, (ie no USB2) - is this relevant? I have tried both rear and front USB ports.

This tuner was definitely working on the old ReadyNAS 104, but that has now been completely wiped in preparation for sale, so I cannot confirm that it is still working, (any way to test on desktop PC running Linux Mint 18?).

If this USB tuner is incompatible with the RN214 because of the USB3 only port issue, can anyone suggest a work around or a USB Dual DVB-T tuner stick, (DVB-T2 even better if possible), that is compatible with my new set up?

Thanks,

Paul

The Hauppauge Nova-TD USB Tuner is definitely still working - I tested it on a Raspberry-Pi.

The TVButler (DVB-C/T/T2) is a good option in your case, but it is a single tuner.

PS. Please attach a log files, i'd like to check the issue with the tuner you do have. To be sure that it is a drivers issue.

Log attached as requested.

I have since also confirmed that the USB ports on the ReadyNAS are working using a Flash drive.

I had considered the TVButler, but as you say it is only a single tuner. I am sure that I read in a DVBLink review online somewhere recently that a dual tuner version of TVButler was under development - any news on this? I'm not in a great hurry, the British pound isn't doing too well against the Euro at the moment :(

Please, make a repair of the TVSource, then go to Source tab and after a minute attach a new log file.

legacy USB tuners are not supported on ReadyNAS 2xx models. Only TVButler is supported from USB tuners.

OK, Thanks.

So, any news on a dual tuner version of TVButler - as mentioned in an online review?

I have purchased a couple of TVButler 100tc - only using one to set up tonight, but so far all good. I have just noticed that the ReadyNAS is offering its firmware OS v6.6.0 for download. If I install this will it "break" the TVButler as each firmware upgrade did previously with the Hauppauge USB tuner?

Should I still wait for DVBLink to be upgraded before upgrading ReadyNAS OS to maintain service?

TVButler is immune to NAS firmware changes.
