Review of the TBS MOI+ DVB S/S2 Satellite TV Linux Server – a bit like a HDHomeRun, but for Free-To-Air satellite signals

The reason I wanted to write this review
I’m a long time satellite TV hobbyist, having having had a large C-band dish for a couple of decades now (I’ve acquired a few additional C-band and Ku-band dishes since then). Some think that satellite TV as a hobby is dead, but it really isn’t. There are still many signals up there, but if you’re still trying to make an old analog satellite receiver work, you’re not going to see much. Sorry, my friend, but the world has gone digital, and now you need a digital satellite receiver to see all the free TV in the sky.
You could go out and buy a standalone receiver for the purpose, but in most cases you are limited to connecting it to one TV set. If you hook it up to the TV in your Living Room, then you’ll need extra wiring and maybe a switch to also enjoy it in your bedroom. If you want to be able to watch the satellite signals you receive in any of several rooms of your home, or on your computer, tablet, or phone, that’s going to be rather difficult with a standalone box.
A couple of years ago, I acquired a HDHomeRun Dual device, and discovered how nice it was to be able to stream terrestrial TV signals to anywhere in my home via my local network. I set up a backend system so that I could record programs and enjoy watching them at my convenience. I wondered if it was also possible to do the same thing with the signals I received off my satellite dishes. So earlier this year I attempted to build a backend system that could receive free-to-air satellite signals and stream them to the various computers around my home, including the home theater PC’s that are connected to my HDTV receivers. Let’s just say that the first attempts didn’t work as well as I’d hoped. There is a huge learning curve, particularly if you’re not a programmer nor otherwise particularly geeky, and sometimes the hardware and the backend software just won’t cooperate.

How to Watch Cable TV on Computer/PC

With a personal computer by your side, you have access to several sources of entertainment - right from music to games. The lengthy list of activities that you can do on your computer has just got better with the inclusion of Cable TV-on-PC option. With the facility to watch cable TV on your computer, you can enjoy all your favorite TV shows which you were not able to see due to some or the other reason; and that too in real time.
In order to watch cable television on your computer, you will require a  cable TV tuner card or a software, an updated computer and high speed Internet access. Another way, using broadband Internet will ensure that you get uninterrupted services, and enhance your cable TV experience.
How to Watch Cable TV on Computer?
Basically, there are two methods by which you can watch cable TV on PC- in the first, you can use simple hardware to gain access to the cable service, and in the second, you have to download particular software for the same. While the term 'hardware' here refers to the DVB-C Cable TV tuners, the term 'software' refers to programs which facilitate the use of computer to watch cable TV in real time. Such as DVBDream, MythTV, MediaPotable, ProgDVB and othe DVB software. As far as convenience is concerned, it is easy to execute both the methods by following some simple guidelines given in the user manual. Given below are the further details of each of these two methods.
Using Cable Tuner Card
If you intend to resort to a TV Tuner, which is slightly more convenient than the software downloading method, you will be able to buy one from the electronics store in your neighborhood or online store. Basically, there exist two types of TV tuners for PC - internal TV tuner (which comes in form of a PCI/PCIe card) and external TV tuner (which comes in form of a USB device.) While the TV tuner card (internal TV tuner) has to be plugged onto the motherboard of the computer, the external device can be plugged into the USB port. The TV tuners available today receive feed from cable service provider through the broadband network, and hence the picture quality is at par excellence even on the PC.
Both have their own pros and cons - while an internal TV card is relatively inexpensive and more stable, you are likely to have a tough time installing it on the motherboard. Similarly, the external device may be easy to connect, but the fact that it comes for some extra amount may make you give it a second thought. Depending on which of these two options you would prefer to go with, you will have to shell out something between US$50-$150. Brands like Hauppauge and TBS boast of some of  best usb tv tuner box, which are priced in the range of US$100-$150.
Downloading Software
If you are not keen on buying TV tuner, you can resort to software applications which facilitate live streaming of cable TV channels on the computer. This method will require a high-speed broadband connection, or else distorted picture quality and ruin your experience. You can inquire with your cable TV operator for the details of downloading the right software program for your PC. The entire process of downloading this software will take less than half an hour, and you will get access to thousands of TV channels on your computer or laptop. Though this method is not considered to be at par with TV tuners, the fact that it saves you the trouble of going through the technicalities of the hardware makes it ideal for some people.
With computers becoming an integral part of each and every American household, it isn't surprising that we now have the option of watching the television on our desktops today. Once you have installed the TV tuner or downloaded the required software, you can just sit back and watch your favorite shows with no disturbance whatsoever. At the same time, you would also get added benefits of recording live TV shows or watching previously recorded shows on your computer.
TBS6618 –It is a digital cable TV tuner card with PCI express slot for watching and recording digital cable TV on PC. With integrated CI slot, it can be used for watching clear QAM or encrypted Pay TV By inserting the correct CAM and subscription smartcard into the CI slot.

TBS5680-It is a digital cable TV Tuner external box with USB connection for watching and recording digital cable TV on PC. Built with Common Interface, This USB TV box allows insertion of CAM and smartcard for pay TV. It is a good choice for watching digital cable TV on laptop.


Window Media Center Edition MCE Remote Control

Media Center Edition (MCE) remotes are designed to control PCs running Microsoft Windows with Windows Media Center. MCE remotes come with an external infrared receiver that connects to a PC via USB. Newer PCs may have the IR receiver integrated in the case.

Note: Originally there were two modules lirc_mceusb and lir_mceusb2. These were later merged into a single lirc_mceusb driver. More recently (2.6.35 kernel and lirc-0.8.7) the module was known as just mceusb. You need to adjust all the configuration examples below depending on exactly how the module is named.
MCE Remote
*IR transmit and receive are supported on all generations of mce transceivers, as of lirc-0.8.6.
*Some newer devices may require post lirc-0.8.6 cvs for full functionality
*Historically, there were separate 1st-gen and 2nd-gen drivers, lirc_mceusb and lirc_mceusb2. They were merged into a single lirc_mceusb driver as of lirc-0.8.6, which as noted above, supports transmit and receive on all devices.
MCE Keyboard
*Keyboard is supported as a USB HID device
*IR Receiver is supported
*IR Transmitter is supported with lirc_mod_mce > 0.1.3
MCE Remote alternative
* Based on the mod-mce project
* Version 1 & 2 Receivers supported as a USB HID device
* LIRC not required
You can click here Download kernel module source
Installation guides
Be sure your kernel has support for USB. Most default kernels will. You will only need the USB 1.1 driver (OHCI or UHCI) and USB 2.0 (EHCI) is not required. There is no kernel module specific for this device. Before continuing, be sure your device is recognized by your USB host controller:
# lsusb
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0471:0815 Philips
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Windows Vista MCE Remote
The new version MCE remote control now responds with the following when you type lsusb:
# lsusb
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 0609:0334 SMK Manufacturing, Inc.
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
This window vista remote requires an updated lirc_mceusb2 driver (newer than current lirc-0.8.2 released: 9-Jun-2007) Download just the updated driver (version 1.30 of the file and newer has support) from LIRC CVS or follow the instructions below for a complete CVS checkout.Use the default mceusb2 lircd.conf file and all of the remote's keys work without modifying the example mceusb2 lircd.conf file.
Download a lirc CVS SnapShot
Generally the latest cvn snapshot from the official LIRC website should work fine. As of writing, the latest snapshot available is lirc-0.8.7pre1. Download and extract it either manually from the previous link or using the following code.
cd /usr/src
wget http://lirc.sourceforge.net/software/snapshots/lirc-0.8.7pre1.tar.bz2
bunzip2 lirc-0.8.7pre1.tar.bz2
tar -xvf lirc-0.8.7pre1.tar
cd lirc-0.8.7pre1
Users of the very latest linux kernels may find they have problems compiling or running code from the svn snapshot. If you have problems with the above install, or just want to run the latest and greatest lirc version, download the latest cvs lirc code using the following method. If that still doesn't work, please report your issues to the lirc mailing list.
Downloading using CVS
  1. Make sure you have the cvs, autoconf, automake and libtool packages installed (rpm package manager users search for them and install their rpms).
  2. 2. Type the following on a command line and ignore what it says about not finding /root/...:
cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@lirc.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/lirc login
3. Type the following: cvs -z8 -d:pserver:anonymous@lirc.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/lirc co lirc
4. Type the following:cd lirc./autogen.sh
5. Continue with the following Install section, starting with "./setup.sh".
You now have two choices, you can either run the Lirc Setup script and accept it installing itself where it wants to, or you can carry out a manual configure. Using the setup script is easier, but it means that the various binararies and configuration files aren't placed in the normal Gentoo locations.To use the automated setup process:
Menu Option # (1) - Driver Configuration (enter)
Menu Option # (8) - USB Devices (enter)
Menu Option # (o) - Windows Media Center Remotes (new version, Philips et al.) (enter)
Menu Option # (3) - Save your configuration and run configure (enter)
make install
Important.png Note: If bash returns 'dialog not found' when running ./setup.sh, install the dialog packageThis will also create a /etc/lircd.conf file which should work. If it complains about missing fedora source files use "yum install kernel-devel" and rerun ./setup.sh.
To perform the manual configuration:
./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc/conf.d --with-x --with-driver=all
cp remotes/mceusb/lircd.conf.mceusb /etc/conf.d/lircd.conf
If you get errors during the compile, try to change the .configure step to be./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc/conf.d --with-x --with-driver=mceusb2 instead of -with-driver=all. You should change mceusb2 to mceusb if you are using the old version of the remote.
If you get an error message that the "kernel source is required", it actually means the kernel headers. On my system this Ubuntu package was linux-kernel-headers-2.9.12-9-386 to match the version returned by the uname -a command. Installing the right version of the headers to match your kernel version is esssential. You may also need to install the gcc compiler.Load the module and Start lircdTest it with the irw utility. irw will output the commands received by the IR receiver that match your lircd.conf file. So start irw, point your remote and start pressing buttons.
# irw
000000037ff07bfe 00 One mceusb
000000037ff07bfd 00 Two mceusb
000000037ff07bfd 01 Two mceusb
000000037ff07bf2 00 Home mceusb
000000037ff07bf2 01 Home mceusb
If everything works, then autoload lirc_mceusb2 when your computer loads (how to depends on your distro) and start lircd as well (also depends on your distro).One note, I'm running a late-model Gentoo and I have to load lircd with this option:
# lircd -d /dev/lirc/0
Otherwise it fails, as it defaults to /dev/lircd. You will also need to install an lircrc file (note no dot at the front of the filename in the ~/.mythtv directory so that when the frontend starts up it can see the mythtv configuration settings for your remote control buttons.
