Description

With the DXR3 plugin one can use DXR3/Hollywood+ cards as output devices for VDR. The bargain of a costly FullFeatured DVB card can be avoided.

Hardware requirements

  • DXR3/Hollywood+

Software requirements

  • em8300 driver
  • FFMPEG
  • Linux kernel sources

Installation

To install FFMPEG

cd $SOURCEDIR
tar -xvzf ffmpeg-<VERSION>.tar.gz
cd ffmpeg-<VERSION>
./configure --prefix=/usr/local \
            --enable-shared
make
make install
ldconfig

Now the kernel sources has to be installed for the em8300 driver which is installed after it. If a normal release is used

cd $SOURCEDIR
tar xvzf em8300-<VERSION>.tar.gz
cd em8300-<VERSION>
./configure --prefix=/usr/local
make
make install
cd modules
make
make install
make devices

if the CVS version (recommended) is used

cd $SOURCEDIR
cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/dxr3 login
cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous@cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/dxr3 co em8300
cd em8300/modules
make
make install

cd ../em8300setup
gcc em8300setup.c -o em8300setup -I../include
cp em8300setup /usr/local/bin

Patches

Before the plugin is installed after plugin installation, the plugins Makefile has to be adapted

- DVBDIR = ../../../../DVB
+ DVBDIR = ../../../DVB

- FFMDIR = ../../../../ffmpeg
+ FFMDIR = /usr/local/include/ffmpeg

Problems

  • There are incompatibilities in combination with ac3overdvb-patch and a channles.conf with DD-Audio-Pids
  • The em8300 driver release cannot be compiled under SuSE 9.1, the CVS version is no problem

CVS

cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/dxr3plugin login
cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous@cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/dxr3plugin co dxr3
