Comment (by fe31nz):

 I have been recording SAT>IP with MythTV for several years now by manually
 putting URLs into the database using IPTV (FREEBOX) tuners as per

 It is good to see real SAT>IP support arriving for v32, and I thought I
 had better test it to make sure it was going to work for me.  I have set
 up a new PC using the old motherboard from my mother's MythTV box, put
 Xubuntu 20.04 on it and installed v32 from the PPA.

 For my current production system I am using minisatip on the same box as
 my main MythTV system, which has a TBS6909 8 tuner DVB-S2 card and a
 TBS6209 8 tuner DVB-T2 card.  Mythbackend directly uses 5 of the TBS6209
 DVB-T2 tuners for the 5 DVB-T muxes available here in New Zealand, and my
 MHEG5 EPG gathering uses one more of the DVB-T2 tuners, leaving two DVB-T2
 tuners for minisatip.  One of the TBS6909 DVB-S2 tuners is used for OpenTV
 format EPG gathering and the other 7 DVB-S2 tuners are used by minisatip.
 Minisatip uses my Sky NZ satellite card to decrypt my pay TV channels via
 Oscam.  My mother's MythTV box also connects to minisatip to record Sky NZ

 On the new test PC, I created two sources, one for DVB-T and one for
 DVB-S2.  I created two SAT>IP tuners, one for each source, and tried
 channel scanning.  Scanning on the DVB-T tuner worked fine and I was able
 to record from the channels it put in the database.  However, when I try
 to scan using the DVB-S2 tuner, I immediately get a popup error message
 "Error parsing parameters".  I used Wireshark to check for traffic to
 minisatip, and the error was occurring before any packets were sent.  I
 tried a number of different combinations of scan settings to see if that
 would help, but I got the same error each time.  Then I deleted all
 sources and tuners and started again with only one source for DVB-S2 and
 one DVB-S2 SAT>IP tuner.  But I got exactly the same error message.

 Klaas: If it is any use for your testing, I should be able to make my
 minisatip available for Internet connections - but that would require that
 connections came from static IP addresses that I could whitelist in my
 router.  Leaving completely open ports to minisatip would not be a good
 idea.  I have a fibre connection with 1 Gbit/s downstream and 500 Mbit/s
 upstream and my ISP's international bandwidth is good.
