Since everything is working now, including TV logos and EPG, the remaining problem has been the switching times. Which I learned is not caused by the buffering, but by the demuxing.

It looks that not only this solution is facing the slow zapping problem, which I learned from here:
http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=150887
But I'm glad that "margro" took care about and optimized the zapping.

I expected some speed up when I downloaded his XBMC version from here:
http://www.scintilla.utwente.nl/~marcelg...build.html
But what I've got was really amazing, the zapping takes now between 1-2 seconds, depending on the multiplex. Which is really amazing.

I'm also thinking about using SAT>IP. But current receivers don't seem to be that good. So I have a few questions about XBMC.

1. Can I record using EPG?
2. Can I just switch channels or do I always have to navigate through the structure to select a channel?
3. Are there any disadvantages with SAT>IP (in general and/or XBMC related)?

I think the only solution is still how I described above, there is no native support for SAT>IP protocol. So make sure to use a SAT>IP server with M3U support.

1. Didn't try that, but afaik should the addon support recording
2. Yes, works fine. Like with many other DVB clients, the zapping is quite slow in the current official XBMC version. With optimized demuxing it's aound 1 sec.
3. In my opinion mostly advantages. No need to run a PC server in parallel and other devices as tablets or Laptops can also receive the satellite signal.

Thanks for your reply.

1. Would it be possible that you test it?
I need to decide if I'm going to use SAT>IP or Unicable. At the moment SAT>IP is my favorit (replace all sat cables with lan cables) but recording with epg is something I want ;-)
Would be really great if you could test it.

@Fp__66S - I checked last weekend and recording is not supported. Maybe it can be somehow enabled, but I'm afraid it will not work.

Thank you very much for checking.
So I will probably buy a IP-Satelliten-Receiver. Maybe in a few month/years xbmc will have a better support for SAT>IP.

Thanks again.

Hi there did anybody try this:

http://code.google.com/p/satip/


if this really works there would be a good frontend for timeshift and recording.

perexg has started working on SAT>IP support for tvheadend (see https://github.com/tvheadend/tvheadend/pull/365). This guy has been pushing a lot of code recently so I have no doubts that this will actually become a reality sooner or later.
