linuxserver/minisatip
Minisatip is a multi-threaded satip server version 1.2 that runs under Linux and it was tested with DVB-S, DVB-S2, DVB-T, DVB-T2, DVB-C, DVB-C2, ATSC and ISDB-T cards.

Supported Architectures

Our images support multiple architectures such as x86-64, arm64 and armhf. We utilise the docker manifest for multi-platform awareness. More information is available from docker here and our announcement here.
Simply pulling lscr.io/linuxserver/minisatip should retrieve the correct image for your arch, but you can also pull specific arch images via tags.
The architectures supported by this image are:
Architecture
Tag
x86-64
amd64-latest
arm64
arm64v8-latest
armhf
arm32v7-latest

Application Setup

Best used in conjunction with tvheadend
There is no setup per se, other than adding your cards for passthrough.
You can then use your cards as DVB inputs in apps such as tvheadend.

Usage

To help you get started creating a container from this image you can either use docker-compose or the docker cli.

Additional runtime parameters

In some cases it might be necessary to start minisatip with additional parameters, for example to configure a unicable LNB. Add the parameters you need and restart the container. Be sure to have the right parameters set as adding the wrong once might lead to the container not starting correctly. For a list of minisatip parameters visit Minisatip page.

Parameters

Docker images are configured using parameters passed at runtime (such as those above). These parameters are separated by a colon and indicate <external>:<internal> respectively. For example, -p 8080:80 would expose port 80 from inside the container to be accessible from the host's IP on port 8080 outside the container.

Ports (-p)

Parameter
Function
8875
Status Page WebUI
554
RTSP Port
1900/udp
App Discovery

Environment Variables (-e)

Volume Mappings (-v)

Configuration files and minisatip data

Device Mappings (--device)

Parameter
Function

Miscellaneous Options

Parameter
Function

Environment variables from files (Docker secrets)

You can set any environment variable from a file by using a special prepend FILE__.
As an example:
1
-e FILE__PASSWORD=/run/secrets/mysecretpassword
Copied!
Will set the environment variable PASSWORD based on the contents of the /run/secrets/mysecretpassword file.

Umask for running applications

For all of our images we provide the ability to override the default umask settings for services started within the containers using the optional -e UMASK=022 setting. Keep in mind umask is not chmod it subtracts from permissions based on it's value it does not add. Please read up here before asking for support.

User / Group Identifiers

When using volumes (-v flags), permissions issues can arise between the host OS and the container, we avoid this issue by allowing you to specify the user PUID and group PGID.
Ensure any volume directories on the host are owned by the same user you specify and any permissions issues will vanish like magic.
In this instance PUID=1000 and PGID=1000, to find yours use id user as below:
1
$ id username
2
uid=1000(dockeruser) gid=1000(dockergroup) groups=1000(dockergroup)
Copied!

Docker Mods

We publish various Docker Mods to enable additional functionality within the containers. The list of Mods available for this image (if any) as well as universal mods that can be applied to any one of our images can be accessed via the dynamic badges above.

Support Info

    Shell access whilst the container is running:
      docker exec -it minisatip /bin/bash
    To monitor the logs of the container in realtime:
      docker logs -f minisatip
    Container version number
      docker inspect -f '{{ index .Config.Labels "build_version" }}' minisatip
    Image version number
      docker inspect -f '{{ index .Config.Labels "build_version" }}' lscr.io/linuxserver/minisatip
