MiniTioune V0.9 beta optimised for QO-100

  • I do not need to use wide scan or for that matter do I need to use the low SR button although I generally have it ticked.

    If the offset for the LNB worked in Version 0.8 then it should be working in Version 0.9.

    It is a bit of a pain setting up the new minitiouneConfig.ini for version 0.9 but I had two editor windows open to make it easier to copy frequencies from minitioune.ini to the new config file.

    I can not remember having to do any special changes to the ini file to make it work, so a bit baffling why it does not work for you if 0.8 was OK. Hope you get it sorted soon.

  • Thanks to al

    I had also two editor windows open to make it easier to copy frequencies from minitioune.ini to the new config file.

    I did some change as suggested for the frequency and suddenly the video pops up

    That makes me a happy man.

    see the screen dump

    I hope the numbers for Carrier, Sr and so on are all OK

    Again thnaks to all

  • Searching for some documentation/Handbook/staterguide or similar.

    I get the first steps done and would be able to RX a stream via QO-100 but would like to go to next level, i.e. there a 4 green/red lights in the bottom right area and all need to be green but what does it mean if a specific light is on red, how to show the video on external PC, how to RX a second signal and what is needed for it, just a second USB cable seems not the only this need to be done.

    So there are lots of questions if you are new to this. I found a video from Jean-Pierre on youtube seems to be a good explanation for some of the questions but as I don't understand frensh it didn't help much (YouTube - Minitioune pour les débutants).

    Didn't found a document, all I found till now, i.e. here in the foru or on, helped me to get initially started, but how to get deeper into this. Maybe I just didn't look on the right place.

    So if there is something explain the features and how to use them please give me a hint where I can find them.

  • DD4YR,

    thank you for the link, but didn't get VLC on the local PC to connnect to the MiniTiouner, with Multicast to other PC works fine.

    When try the settings as described on the the batc wiki page I get nothing, even can't see any packets with wireshark, VLC just say can't connect. Even when I switch off the firewall to check if this will block something it won't work with VLC and MiniTiouner running on same PC.

    Hardware is a MiniTiouner Pro V2 and Laptop with Win10.

    As well found nothing how I can view a second stream which was one of the reason why I bought the Pro V2.

    Any hint is welcome

  • Hi,

    is there anyway to force the minitoune software to use a specific/correct USB to serial connector??

    I have the problem that I sometimes get the message an incompatible Hardware is used. When narrow it down to find out what is the cause of this message I see that my CAT interface uses as well a USB to serial FTDI device and when both are connected and the CAT isn't already used by an other application it seems that minitoune try to use that FTDI device instead of the one from the minitoune pro V2 hardware.

    If I unplug the CAT device or it is already in use by some other application it works as expected. Now I search for any solution where I don't need to start an other application or unplug the USB cable to CAT interface before starting minitoune.

    Any idea/suggestion is welcome



  • DG7YEO Elmar you should check with the FTDI Tool the ID of your devices. or using Windows System Manager. That could be the conflict. If the answer is yes then change the one in the cat cable to another one. Instead you can use a cheap usb to seriell adapter from e.g. Prolific. Good choice to buy is they have one with RTS/CTS an one without. I made my cat cables out of that.

  • DD0KP Heiner, thank you for the hints, I checked this already, they have different IDs, Names etc. is different, except of the vendor ID, even the chip type is different FT2232H in minitiouner and FT232R on the CAT interface.

    Swap the Adapter is no option, like in the minitiouner it is build in the device (Funkamateur BX-120 - USB-TRX-Interface One).

    Tried already to remove all devices and drivers and replug them in different order, first the minitiouner but windows device manager still show the CAT interface as USB Serial Converter and the minitiouner as the USB Serial Converter A and USB Serial Converter B even if the device internal Names are different.

  • After some further tests I found a solution, as soon as I connect the minitiouner with both USB ports it works even if the CAT interface is not used by another application. It was no problem to reproduce that, with only one USB Cable connected to minitiouner and CAT not used problem is seen, as soon as I connect both USB ports it works.



  • Sometimes you have nothing to share today since we are in 40ena, a test to understand if I receive TV signals with Minitiouner you see other videos outside OM, today made the internal research the TV frequency I find a SR 27500 Frequency 01510000 and set LNB 0000000, the search was fast with an 80 cm offset dish the thing that struck me video music I was shocked I managed .....

    thanks to the author Jean-Pierre F6DZP of his masterpiece
