How to configure multiple sources with the same channel configuration
What are the sources with the same channel configuration?
The sources are considered having the same channel configuration if they receive identical TV signal, e.g:
- Digital tuners of the same type (dvb-t/c, atsc, qam) connected to the same antenna cable
- Satellite tuners taking signal from the same/different LNBs facing the same satellite
- Analog tuners, connected to the same cable or antenna
- IPTV sources, using the same m3u playlist
How does it work?
DVBLink supports source groups, consisting of a master source and one or more linked sources. Master source defines the configuration of a group.
During channel selection process the channels of a source group are operated as a whole entity - e.g. added and removed for all included sources at once.
Which sources support this feature?
Currently combining several sources into a source group is supported for DVBLink TVSource, DVBLink for IPTV and DVBLink AnalogTV.
How to properly configure these sources in DVBLink?
When a new source instances is added, DVBLInk will present user with a dialog for master source selection:
Select one of the already existing sources as a master, optionally change the automatically generated source name and press Ok.
The new source will be added to the group of the master source that you have selected:
How to select channels for the source group?
The source group is represented as a single entity on the Channel selection page:
By adding or removing channels to/from selection you operate on all channels of all sources belonging to the group at once.
