[smile]  Not quite.  I didn't realize that they had come out with the new model until I read these threads yesterday.  Then I immediately pulled up the raspberry sales pages, and decided that I have to get one of those.   Only problem is that I have too many items on my wish list right now, and may have to decide which to spend money on. 



and JOWSKI, yeah couldn't remember her name, but never trusted her.  [smile]

I deleted my preious post involving this subject.

All I have here to check with is my kernel 4.1.0-v7 on the tuner-xc2028.c getting patched. I had not deleted any of the install files.

I checked that the medial_build / v4l-updatelee patch had the diff for the tuner-xc2028.c and it did.
I checked that the patch was applied in v4l media_build and it was.
re-ran sudo make install in media_build and dates changed to today's date changed on tuner-xc2028.ko and md5sum stayed the same.

I stll scratching my head. Majortom did you do the testing on 4.1.0-v7?
There looks like some flakyness of some sort going on in the patch file. Looks like it is removing the line in the middle of a comment but seems ok when the file is patched and the line numbers seem to be out of wack Have to study that some more.

Pic #1 is the patch that was created between v4l media_build and v4l-updatelee
Pic #2 is the patched tuner-xc2028.c in v4l media_build

From what little I've seen, the 4.1 kernel uses a different tree than the 4.0.x's.  Not sure why Linus did that but patching becomes a problem with 4.1.

A guy would hope that v4l medial_build would be in tune with it since it has reached the stable level.

ADDED:

A little leary of putting a link  for the new image but I guess it needs to be tested and go from there. Just put it on another sdcard to test with.

ray@ray-LX6200-01 ~/image $ md5sum rpi2b-clean_06-30-15.tar.bz2
a377295b2c9508b5b7edf366a8f57958  rpi2b-clean_06-30-15.tar.bz2

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B-hVZ4SWSiuKbTRsd1FrTHZYMmc/view?usp=sharing

Directions:

Have a fresh fat32 formated sdcard ready in desktop
Run md5 sum on the tarball and verify
tar -jxvSf rpi2b-clean_06-30-15.tar.bz2

Find out where the sdcard is mounted:

ray@ray-LX6200-01 ~/Desktop $ df -h
Filesystem      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda1       339G   59G  263G  19% /
none            4.0K     0  4.0K   0% /sys/fs/cgroup
udev            3.8G   12K  3.8G   1% /dev
tmpfs           774M  1.6M  772M   1% /run
none            5.0M     0  5.0M   0% /run/lock
none            3.8G   68K  3.8G   1% /run/shm
none            100M   36K  100M   1% /run/user
/dev/sda6       178G  116G   53G  69% /media/ray/FILES
/dev/sdd1        15G   15G     0 100% /media/ray/3165-3137

Here mine is mounted on /dev/sdd1 so:

sudo umount /dev/sdd1
sudo dd bs=2M if=rpi2b-clean_06-30-15.img of=/dev/sdd    --no partition # here. This takes a while; wait for prompt
sudo sync

Eject the sdcard in file manager and remove it and then reinsert it to expand the file system. The upgrade from wheezy to jessie broke the resize feature in raspi-config. I have not figured out why yet. I have had issues in the past with raspi-config resizing and have never trusted it since even though the issue is supposed to be fixed so I always use gparted on my desktop to resize.

open up gparted and find the sdcard in the drop down window in the upper right hand corner
right click on the dos and ext4 partitions one at a time and choose unmount
right click on the ext4 partition and choose Resize/Move
In the box that comes up drag the arrow on the right hand side all the way to the right. Be sure it is arrow on the right
click Resize/Move button
click Apply All operations arrow in upper middle of gparted window
close out gparted
eject drive in file manager window
remove sdcard and put it in the pi and hook up all cabling and save the power cord for last

Login: pi
password: raspberry
FYI: root password is raspberry also

updatedvb:

In the settings window set up your devices. If you have a mpeg licence:
sudo nano /boot/config.txt
scroll down to the bottom and find this and enter you licence data and remove the #:
# decode_MPG2=00000000000
ctrl-x to exit and y to save
reboot

open up updatedvb and go to settings ---> General ---> Play cmd box:

Match omxplayer play area to you screen so it will not fill the whole screen with a 1.77 ratio. An example my monitor is 1680 x 1050:
1680 / 1.77 = 949.15 so 1680 x 948
The 40 drops omxplayer down below the top task bar

I would Put this command in the Play cmd box:
xterm -e /usr/bin/omxplayer -o hdmi --win "0 40 1680 948" /dev/dvb/adapter{}/dvr0

click the save button and exit settings

This is a crude way to launch omxplayer but it lets you have use of omxplayer keystrokes which only works when omxplayer is launched from a terminal.
leave xterm open. If for some reason it gets unactive click on it's icon on the top taskbar
To kill use ctrl-c which kills xterm and omxplayer

After a while screen areas will go black outside of omxplayer. This is normal; wiggle mouse to get it back

Andy found that tune-s2 does not work. There was an upgrade on the modules it has to be recompiled:

open up a terminal
cd src
git clone https://bitbucket.org/majortom/tune-s2
cd tune-s2
make
./tune-s2 will run it. You can "sudo cp ./tune-s2 /usr/local/bin" if you want it in your path
remove old tune-s2 in /usr/local/bin if you did not copy as mentioned in previous line

The link on the desktop to updatedvb goes to /home/pi/src/updatedvb. If udl does an upgrade on updatedvb:

open up a terminal
cd src/updatedvb
make distclean                ---Most of the time not necessary instead of make clean just clearing everthing out
git pull
/opt/qt5/bin/qmake .
make -j4

The desktop wallpaper I made is the size for my Monitor. Right click on the desktop --> Change Desktop Background
From there you can expand crop or whatever to fit your screen.

I think media_build is of the church of 4.0.x's persuasion.

At 13:10 I've got 51M downloaded. I'll try and make hourly updates just for any other
down loaders sake.

Maybe it will not take long. The image is 100M larger than the a raspian image.

Loaded the new image and ran it.  Yes, there are issues with the rainbow in the upper right corner.  Mostly when playing with the inDtube, but we now know there are power problems.  Here's the screenshot of the scan.  Still have false signal levels but life isn't always fair.  Thanks for the images.  I'm looking forward to spending more time with them as the support toys arrive.

Glad to see the image loading and working. My one rpi2b I use a lot the power socket is starting to get worn and is not as tight as my other one from constantly plugging and removimg. Some times I see the rainbow square and I shut it down and plug back in harder and it goes away. You would think they would install a power switch. I have started unplugging at the power strip.

I do not know but as mentioned previously there is something that looks a little strange about the patch file to me but I am no programer. I am will try to do something else and recompile. I have tried to change things in the past in media_build and the changes disappear into thin air.

Yeah that power switch is an issue, I too plug the adapter into an extension cord and unplug from the wall or power strip.

You don't want to see my bench; my wife don't want to see my bench; in fact......bye

Fellow Members, your posts are welcome here! Do not worry about posting everything perfect. Different receivers and LNB's will give you different Frequencies and Symbol Rates. Some set top boxes, PCI cards and USB receivers, Do Not Require all of the same information that others may need. It is not Required to post everything that others may need to tune in a feed. It is just most important to share the find. We can always adjust the Frequency and Symbol Rates and try the various Modulations and FEC's on our own receivers until we get a lock and then give a polite reply with what works for your receiver, as that information might help others as well. We all appreciate the efforts and energy of the Posters!
