[mythtv] Implementing SAT>IP

Hi guys,

for some time now, I'm working on receiving TV with my satip-router, but now 
I'm lost in getting the right data.

For now detection of the router works as expected, importing the m3u (I let 
the IPTV-recorder do that) works also, but now it comes to tuning, and that's 
the point I'm stuck.

I got told by stuarta on IRC, that satip is something like iptv, which was my 
first thought, too. But no I saw that this recorder saves it's m3u-address as 
videodevice in the database. This makes it easy to reuse the 
iptvchannelfetcher for importing the m3u for my satip-router, but tuning in 
satip works a bit different. I have to send a tuning request via rtsp in form:


So I have to set the tuner-number (my device has 2), and I have no clue how to 
get that. I know mythtv can use more that one tuner in parallell, but I can't 
find out, how this is managed.

I first tried to make the 2 tuners separate devices, but without setting the 
videodevice to contain the tuner, I had the same situation as before. After 
setting the videodevice to have the tuner named, I don't know where to save 
the address of the m3u.

So I want to ask here for some hints, how this should be solved.

MfG. usw.
