Intriguing. I already use OSCAM in my VU+ cable box with Virgin Media. What would would OSCAM as docker be used for? The intrigued part of me is imagining something using this Docker with Plex Media Server and a DVB-C card  (if such a thing exists), am I barking up the correct tree?

 

You can just use the VU+ as a server and connect to that one from a client. Not sure if there are any support for card clients in Plex though. 

If you move OSCAM and the card to the server you need a new card reader as well.

maybe it's only cosmetic, but that latest oscam update (you switch to another source for oscam, right?) shows as build version r0. which version actually is it? same as the last one from the streamboard source?

 

why i ask? you know my problems with tvheadend (posted on the tvheadend thread) since just a few days ago. in between i setup a complete new server (docker setup complete from scratch, incl. new usb stick in trial for unRAID) everything possible to think of (other destinations for recordings, etc.) – and now i'm struggling to find any other reasons, why my rock-solid tvh-docker has these super strange problems. and maybe, that would be my hope, maybe it's because of that new oscam build; that could explain alot and from the timeline would fit into this scenario.

 

question: could i please ask for that docker build before the change? i remember it was something like r11391. that would be awesome.

(i haven't found any tipps in regard of specifying a targeted version which to pull for the docker).

 

thx. alot saarg, i hope you can help me out.

I didn't make the change in build source, so not sure why it doesn't have a version number, but had the same issue before also. It's the same guys developing I think. 

 

You can go to docker hub and look at the tags and then try one by one of the latest until it works again (maybe). Just add the tag after the repository in the repository box. Use a colon in front of the number.

The change in source was made because currently streamboard site is dead.

This is the alternative chosen https://launchpad.net/oscam and the last update was in august of this year.

Yeah, strange thing. That site was up for years and suddenly it disappeared.

that works, indeed. i used :66 and am back to r11391 of oscam.
my very first impressions is, it works as expected. but i want to test a little bit more, to see, that it's not a placebo effect.

Hi,

I'm using the Oscam and the Tvheadend container from linuxserver.io on my unraid server. I'm running the latest builds and unRAID is also the latest build 6.5.0 RC5. My problem is that the Ecm times using the containers with unRAID are about 400 ms and sometimes causing glitches. This same config on openmediavault is running with Ecm times about 100ms.

The ping to my unraid server in the local network is 1ms. Using Oscam on my Vu+ receiver is also running with normal Ecm times.

Does any1 have an idea what I could try to solve my problem?

Thx in advance ;-)

I have no issues with ecm times here. It's around 170-180.

Do you use the same card reader on OMV? It's the same card? 

How is your network setup on unraid? Containers on a bridge or separate IP?

The Server I'm connecting to its hosted by my brother so I don't use a local card reader. The containers are running in bridged mode as I'm not able to connect from a container running in bridged mode to a container with a fix ip. I've tried that but didn't get it working.

Then I'm out. I'm not supporting card sharing.

It's more some kind of homesharing but it's OK when you say that's relevant for helping me with my problem. ;-)

Hi,

 

I'm struggling to make the connection between my usb reader and oscam.

 

This is from Unraid system device:

Bus 007 Device 002:

ID 076b:3021 OmniKey AG CardMan 3121

 

Added on Extra Parameters on oscam container:

--device=/dev/bus/usb/007/002

 

Device seems to be detected inside container:

lsusb

Bus 007 Device 002: ID 076b:3021

 

Now, i'm not sure how to configure the device on oscam configuration. Tried a few things with no luck:

- /dev/bus/usb/007/002

- 007:002

- 076b:3021

 

  • 2018/06/16 13:17:26 4F38FD8F r (reader) Reader-1 [smartreader] Wrong device format (/dev/bus/usb/007/002), it should be Device=bus:dev
  • 2018/06/16 13:37:38 4E9B8C36 r (reader) Reader-1 [smartreader] Cannot open device: 007:002
  • 2018/06/16 13:39:11 4E9B8C36 r (reader) Reader-1 [smartreader] Cannot open device: 076b:3021

Ok, now it's working. Device should be "0" on oscam and protocol should be PCSC
