View Full Version : Serial Connect to RCA DTV
05-12-2003, 10:48 AM
Could someone who has done the serial connection to a DTV sat box please give a brief ďHow ToĒ description. Iíve downloaded Girder the dll files, and all other plug in files needed. Does Sage control this directly or does it go through Girder. The enclosed txt files didnít give a very clear instruction. Iím sure I could figure it out but some who already has could save me ton of time. Thanks:D

I did the initial Girder implementation of RCA DSS Serial control.
I have it working with SageTV using the EXETuner SageTV plugin.
First step is to ensure that you have serial control of the DSS working with DTVCon.
Second step is to ensure that you have Girder working without DTVCon and with the Generic Serial Plugin along with the RCA DSS Tuner ini file and GML file.
Third, ensure that event.exe is properly triggering Girder commands for the tuner.
Finally, have SageTV configured to send the events to Girder via the EXETuner plugin.
Ask a more specifc question about where you are having trouble and I will try my best to help. :)

Second) Location for INI file and GML file is at http://www.girder.nl/serial.php?Link=471
There is a discussion of what it took to get it to work and multi receiver support at http://www.girder.nl/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=3574
