Now you can do a full test before using Tutioune

Postby F6DZP » Sun 3 Nov 2013 08:01

Hello,
with the new version : CheckMatos V4.1 you can check all your PC installation.
There are 5 groups of Tests:
1 - Check your tuner PCI card and driver installation.
2 - Check if you have Directshow filters installed and your QSL card is in the Directory
3- Check if your computer can play a TS file - mpeg2 encoded - so check also for Audio and video Codec installation
4 - Check Network availability for UDP sending ( to VLC, TSreader ...) and for WEB-XML sending to your TiouneMonitor.
5 - Check if the TS data coming from your PCI card can be sent to the Directshow graph for decoding.

I just down loaded the CheckMatos V4_1 and ran it. Everything seems fine with the exception that I do not have green lights on the DMA and the Buffer. Do I need this for the S2-1600 board? Windows 7, 32 bit. This was just a dry run with out the antenna hooked up to the High Sierra down converter. If I do need it, what does it do and how can I fix the problem?

Please cancel the above. As an update...after install the V4.1 worked as above. We powered down and walked away knowing I would report this problem. Seems, that perhaps it was not a problem. Upon 100 mile return home with the truck and getting it set back up to the dish that it just needed to power down and reboot. I would presume that after down loading that perhaps a reboot/restart of the computer is in order. I am not sure but it worked for me.

Thanks Bob kb3pmr

Error Message

Running CheckMatos V42.2 all is green with the exception of:


Play TS from file.
Error message ($80040265) "Cannot play back the file. The format is not supported"

The enclosed F6DZp_Test file plays fine with Windows MediaPlayer.

Thoughts?

I think you forgot to install LAV directshow filters as I explain in the download page:http://www.vivadatv.org/viewtopic.php?f=60&t=261
You can read :
If you want to read the TS file you must first install LAV directshow filters.
You can find them here:
http://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?t=156191
By clicking on "Version 0.59: Installer (both x86/x64)" download and install file : LAVfilters-0.59.exe ( click right to run as Administrator under Win7)
this will allow to read TS files and give you many codecs: mpeg2, AC3 ...

Thanks!

It worked for the CheckMatos. Now, is this necessary also for the T-Software?

If yes, it would be helpful to modify the installation instructions. Let me know and I can help.

Hello Stephan,

No : LAV gives principally 3 tools (Directshow filters):
- mpeg2 audio decoder -> no need for win7 but useful for win XP that don't have
- mpeg2 video decoder -> no need for win7 but useful for win XP that don't have
- TS file reader/splitter that allow Win XP and Win7 to read TS file format.
( VLC and mediaplayer have their own reader- they don't use windows capacity for that)
As in CheckMatos we want to test if a PC is able to decode a TS, we need a test file and we need to read it and decode it.
If we use Win7, Tutioune doesn't need LAV reader/splitter filter as Tutioune doesn't have to read a TS file from disk.
If we use Win XP and don't have already installed mpeg2 audio and video decoder, LAV installation can be a solution to get them.

Thank you for your remarks.
