Easy BlindScan Integration with DVBDream

Postby Cjcr » Tue Oct 04, 2011 1:41 pm

Hi @rel

I will like to integrate DVBDream with my software, Easy BlindScan. Actually the integration with VLC/TSReader is partially ok, but, I like to integrate also with DVBDream... ok, here is the idea:

I send command line arguments, with SatID (0192), frec, pol, sr, mod, fec and also a BDA device name if is needed..

When this happens, dvbdream do a scan of this frequency in the background and create a special channel list for this purposes (blindscan)...

if in the channel list only appear one channel, reproduce it by default.

Best regards,
cjcr. :)

TeVii S470, TeVii S660, Prof 7500, TBS6980, TwinHan BlueCard 1020, AverMedia007 DVB-T... and more...

Command line arguments will be added to start scan from command line in the next DD version v1.6, it will take time, but the way you suggested. :-)

For now, I can suggest, sending a window message to start the scan on DD, if you would like.

Here is how you can do this, you can test this as I am not sure if it will help or not. This will need DD to be started already.

#define WM_MODULE_MSG WM_USER + 321

#include "moduleapi.h"

TSetTunerParams stp;
stp.wSatPos = 0130;
stp.tpi.dwSize = sizeof(stp.tpi);
stp.tpi.dwFreq = 11766000;
stp.tpi.dwSr = 27500000;
stp.tpi.pol = POL_VERTICAL;
stp.tpi.dwModulation = MOD_DVBS_QPSK;
stp.tpi.dwFec = FEC_AUTO;


// needs DD v1.5g

Decsription : Opens up the manual scan dialog with the given TP parameters
Parameter Type : PSetTunerParams structure
Decsription : Opens up the manual scan dialog and starts the scan
with the given TP parameters
Parameter Type : PSetTunerParams structure

good idea.

Does DVBDream support Auto Symbol Rate?
Decoder Chip VP310 in Skystar 2 rev 2.3 supports Auto Symbol Rate.

Let me know if I can help you. I prefer programming in pascal.
