- Fix: If several DVB devices share one LNB, only the first of these devises will send signals like 22kHz. See README.LNBshare for details - README.LNBshare: Include warning about 1.3 FF cards with buggy Loop-Through that might result in destruction of LNBP-Chips if the Loop-Through is used - Fix: Log file: Numbering of 'LNBs' not connected to a SAT DVB card

+Warning
+- At some 1.3 FF-Cards a voltage at the Loop-Through will destroy the LNBP-Chips of these cards. Please check the manual. If you are unsure or your card is affected, don't use the Loop-Through! Even if this patch avoids switching on the voltage in such a case, the patch might be buggy or wrong configured or ...
+
+Required hardware:
+- sat splitter like SVE 2-01 (reichelt.de). Make sure to have a sat splitter with built in diodes preventing any current in case of different voltage on the connected DVB cards.
+
Settings (OSD)
In VDR, if you select Settings -> LNB and have two or more devices that can recieve SAT channels, you can set the 'LNB Nr.' for each of these devices. Note:
- All devices with an identical 'LNB Nr.' share the same LNB
- The patch assumes that a device has always the same number. If you have more than two devices, you must make sure to load the drivers in a given order to make sure that each of the listed devices belongs always to the same card. If during setup, for example, your first DVB-S card is device 2 and your second DVB-S card is device 4 (device 1 and 3 are, for example, DVB-T cards) you must make sure that after reboot these stay the same: your first DVB-S card is device 2 and your second DVB-S card is device 4.
+- Signals (like DiSEqC, 22kHz, Voltage) are only sent by the first device if several devices share the same LNB. VDR will even switch on the LNB Voltage only on the first device. Note: This is not guarantied: If you use a Loop-Through, please see the warning in the README and make sure that the FF Card is the first card.
-DISEQC Support:
-Diseqc is supported, including the feature added in VDR 1.7.13: Added device definitions to the diseqc.conf file format, so that certain satellite positions can be limited to a given list of devices
+DiSEqC Support:
+DiSEqC is supported, including the feature added in VDR 1.7.13: Added device definitions to the diseqc.conf file format, so that certain satellite positions can be limited to a given list of devices
Note: Please ensure in diseqc.conf that all devices sharing one LNB have exactly the same satellite positions. The system will not check this, but, otherwise, the patch will not work correctly. This is not a restriction: obviously, if two devices share the same LNB, they can also receive the same satellite positions.

- Such intelligent scheduling is generally missing in VDR and would be also useful for 'mixed' systems with DVB-S and DVB-T cards as well as systems in which not all DVB-S cards can receive the same satellites.
