Linux receivers - help ! 2 Years, 10 Months ago Karma: 213
Just got a SAB Unix triple tuner box.

Scanned Sat channels okay. Went to look at other functions, Cool TV Guide epg, how to connect etc

IPConfig section appears to have gotten me an IP address, DHCP set to No, Gateway populated, Mask populated, DNS was empty but i set it to Google (8.8.8.8). And it's wired direct to my UPC modem.

But, can't use any of the Youtube etc, i can't ping the IP i received from laptop on the network

I have a tech background but not in Linux/Unix. But, this receiver is already pissing me off.

All i want to do is connect to the Network !! And it's a wired connection. Why is it not straight forward ??

Can anyone tell me what might be wrong ?

TIA
Rob

Sounds like you are missing the default-gw
netstat -rn
look for 0.0.0.0 X.X.X.X 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 eth0

if you have a gw do traceroute to 8.8.8.8

Ta for that.

Last night just before i went to bed, i found that i was booting with Spark and not Enigma2.

So, reset box and selected Enigma2 on boot.

Whole new splash screen, ui etc - so, knew i was on the right track. But was late and so left it.

Will check net settings later this evening.

Hey Rob, I was helping Bren set up a Raspberry Pi over xmas (also Linux) we hit similar issues even though my IP connectivity was working. The fix was to set it to DHCP and then reboot with a Cat 5 cable connected. It picked up a DHCP then brought the interface up and everything was golden then.

I know that's a pretty simplistic fix but assuming you have DHCP in your router give it a go and see what happens. Maybe B4ss has some suggestions also he's quite techy?

If you're suffering from lag, you're either in the wrong gear or the wrong car!

Raspberry Pi - something i also want to tinker with, as well as Arduino, building robots etc !

I had selected DHCP and rebooted a few times. Didnt check the cable but its only a year or so old. So, would assume its min cat5. Maybe the image was corrupted. New image is on it now.

Will check it later. I was just happy to see the ui i was expecting - so, i went to bed ! Fingers crossed dhcp is working now

hope so

I don't think the cable will make much difference, unless you have mistakenly used a cross over cable. But then you would not normally have one of those unless you actually went looking for one sometime in the past.

The other thing with Linux is that it seems you can issue a command to turn your network port off or on. So it's possible your network settings and everything is right but your port is shutdown. Just something to watch out for. I'm not a Linux guru though, I spend all of my time in Windows with the oddbit of Vmware thrown in!
