TBS 6921: DD crashes on adjusting diseq positioner settings

Postby Homer » Wed Jan 12, 2011 2:58 pm

Hi,
I'm trying to get the software working with my new TBS-6921. Since I was replacing a Manhattan ST550 with the TBS card, I left the dish pointing at 28E to give the TBS card and DvbDream something easy to find channels on. I then had a lot of problems getting DvbDream to move my USALS diseqc motor but eventually found that I had to give each satellite a number in the DvbDream positioner options. I now have it working on two satellites - 28E and 5E, but every time I try to get it to move to another satellite by using the positioner settings menu, it crashes DvbDream.
I can't find a guide on how to set up diseqc motors in DvbDream, only the diseqc switches, so I have had to try everything to get as far as I have.
So, is there a guide for setting up diseqc motors, or is there a known problem with DvbDream and TBS cards ? Please help, as I like this software better than all the others that I have tried. It's only this motor issue that I can't solve (so far !!).

Hi,

The patch appears to have solved the problem. No more crashing of Dvb Dream when I alter positioner options. I am now able to move the motor, and am adding in satellites across the arc.

Thank you :-)

Having problems here also, although I have the TBS 8921 version, using raw DiSEqC commands to move my dish with 36 volt actuator results in freezing of DVBDream, works fine with other cards I have. I'm using the bda.dev for DvbDream that comes on the cd with the TBS 8921.
