ICD2 programmer adapted for 64-bit Windows

April 21, 2020 Comments off

Microchip made major changes to the 64-bit driver for the ICD2 compared to the 32-bit one, so it took me a while to adapt the application. Now it works OK regardless of the driver used.
I also added the -V option to the command line in order to program the microcontrollers powered from another voltage source. (default is to set VDD = +5V). More command line options here

AltDVB Device Server

April 20, 2020 Comments off

This is an application used to remotely access a DVB device over TCP/IP. To install it extract the archive content into your AltDVB’s directory. The server is using one of the available interface libraries from .\Devices\ directory to access the DVB hardware. On network side, two TCP ports are used: one for commands (37000) and one for data (37001). You can change it by editing AltDVB_DevServer.cfg.

Warning: Be sure to stop the server if you want to use the same device directly in AltDVB !

To connect AltDVB to a remote server you have to manually edit Dev_Network.cfg. Please note that there is no autoreconnect feature: if the TCP/IP connection to the server is lost you have to restart the AltDVB.

AltDVB non-BDA interfaces

Comments off

Here are some interface libraries to a non-BDA DVB devices. Use them only if the BDA version of the driver for that device is not available. Please note that I cannot test them from various reasons: missing PCI interface from new motherboard or I don’t own the device anymore.

  • Dev_DvbWorld.int – v2.3.0.198
    – access the hardware using vendor’s DwUsbApi.dll which must be present in AltDVB directory
  • Dev_Pinnacle.int – v2.3.0.200
    – for older Pinnacle PCTV Sat/ PCTV 400i / etc.
  • Dev_SkyStar2.int – v2.3.0.770
    – fixed DiSEqC command when using driver >= 4.4.0
    – config dialog built without VCL
  • Dev_TTBudget.int – v2.3.0.294
    – need WDM drv. 2.19h (28.11.2006)
    – you have to copy “ttlcdacc.dll” (ver. >= 2.19.8.1) into ..\AltDvb\Devices\
    – tested with S2-3200
