  1. Hi! How can I configure for 18 disk ports? My 3617sx 1.03 works fine with synoinf.conf: esataportcfg="0x0" usbportcfg="0xc0000" internalportcfg="0x3ffff" maxdisks="18" but with the 1.04b 918+ loader it doesn't show more than 16 slots? Thanks!
  2. Hi! I'm trying to compile dsm 6.2 for broadwell with the drm intel graphics (goal is to get intel quick going for hardware transcoding on plex). The build is failing though, any ideas anyone? The output where it fails: CC [M] drivers/gpu/drm/drm_drv.o drivers/gpu/drm/drm_drv.c: In function ‘drm_stub_open’: drivers/gpu/drm/drm_drv.c:861:2: error: implicit declaration of function ‘replace_fops’ [-Werror=implicit-function-declaration] replace_fops(filp, new_fops); ^ cc1: some warnings being treated as errors scripts/Makefile.build:308: recipe for target 'drivers/gpu/drm/drm_drv.o' failed make[3]: *** [drivers/gpu/drm/drm_drv.o] Error 1 scripts/Makefile.build:455: recipe for target 'drivers/gpu/drm' failed make[2]: *** [drivers/gpu/drm] Error 2 scripts/Makefile.build:455: recipe for target 'drivers/gpu' failed make[1]: *** [drivers/gpu] Error 2 Makefile:800: recipe for target 'drivers' failed make: *** [drivers] Error 2 Cheers!
  3. Just checking as thinking of switching from 3617 to 918 😀
  4. Hiya bearcat, Yes indeed I do have a Plex pass...
  5. Booted with the D918 loader with a couple of spare disks and checked that h/w transcode in plex does work on my hardware: msi eco h97 mboard haswell i3/4150 All seems ok, hw transcode does work (confirmed by dev/dri present, (hw) symbol present and cpu usage minimal) D918 loader 1.04 with dsm 6.2 supports my onboard nic, sybase 4port sata and sas 8 port controller. Are there any restrictions with D918? Software that won't work or other hardware restrictions? Can it support more than 16 drives (I currently have 18 ports) ? Is Vbox ok on it (forgot to try!) ? Thanks!
  6. Have you got the dev/dri folder? No H/W transcode without it... Also, there should be "(hw)" in the converting box in the screenshot above?
  7. Cheers Have just come across the Hauppauge WinTV-quadHD card which at 109euros is a fair bit cheaper than the tbs6205 @ 165euros.. Chips look similar according to linuxTV: Silicon Labs Si2157 (tuners, 4) Silicon Labs Si2168 B40 (demodulators, 4) Conexant CX23888 (PCIe Interfaces, 2) Pericom PI7C9X2G304 (PCIe switch, 1) These all seem to be included in the open source zip (and firmware available from openelec git) so wondering if this might be a cheaper alternative..
  8. Hi! A few months on now and still working great - apart from the usb tuner side of thing! Are there any usb tuners (HD) which are reliable with the open source drivers?! Thinking of getting a tbs6205 quad to replace my 6281 dual. How's yours going as I've read some reports of over heating? Will be using it for dvbt/2 only. I assume I'll just need to amend my script to include the different modules required for the 6205's chips? currently used modules for dual tbs card: MODULES_START1="media.ko dvb-core.ko si2157.ko si2168.ko cx24117.ko tas2101.ko saa716x_core.ko" MODULES_START2="saa716x_budget.ko" Cheers!

  10. Hi JMRR, Just a quick follow up a week or 2 on. The TBS card is working great with tvheadend 4.1.2190.. The Afatech usb has stopped working after a few days a couple of times, requiring either pulling out/reinserting or unloading modules and tvheadend etc. I think that's down to the usb drivers though.. Many thanks again, considering getting a tbs quad dvb-t2 card to replace the 6821 as I've had the dreaded 'no cards free' message a few times Your help has allowed me to shutdown my tv server box and only run my main synology box - actually saving me money (on electricity) for once besides being 'cool' lol
  11. Success! Using a different directory for the modules worked. Also got the alfatech USB tuner going at the same time - didn't realise the open source release had all the needed modules for it Happy to use the si firmwares too.. Many thanks!
  12. OK cool have managed to get the drivers working by this method: delete the backports_dvb dir reboot recreate the backports_dvb dir copy over the files (using your latest open source). Problems remaing to be solved: When I reboot however the files are overwritten due to the upgrade file check - i see the checking/updating going on during the boot. I also need to also get a usb tuner going - An alfatech AF9033 ITE9035. I'm currently trying to sus which modules that uses but i see it uses some duplicate ones - dvb-core for example.. So far: media.ko si2157.ko rc-core.ko dvb-core.ko dvb_usb_v2.ko dvb-usb-af9035.ko af9033.ko it913x.ko Does this mean that it will be impossible with linux? Is it possible to recompile the alfatech af9033 with the same shared source as the tbs drivers to make them compatible? Cheers!
  13. About the open source: Some of those (e.g dvb-core) already exist. Do I overwrite duplicates? Do I insmod only these in the same order as shown: media.ko dvb-core.ko si2157.ko si2168.ko cx24117.ko tas2101.ko saa716x_core.ko saa716x_budget.ko int_type=1 Also, does it matter that I'm using another usb tuner (I guess this is why dvb-core etc are already loaded) Hmm i've noticed that when i reboot the box it checks the upgrade file and then recopies si2157 & si2168 over it.. Noticed some messages in dmesg: [ 96.646010] SAA716x Budget 0000:02:00.0: irq 44 for MSI/MSI-X [ 96.654167] DVB: registering new adapter (SAA716x dvb adapter) [ 96.654174] vmalloc: allocation failure: 18446743755033046016 bytes [ 96.654176] insmod: page allocation failure: order:0, mode:0xd2 Thanks - as you can tell i'm a linux newbie...
