NAME
rtpfeed - Feed a DVB-S card with an RTP unicast/multicast/broacast stream SYNOPSIS
rtpfeed [ --group group ] [ --port port R] [ --vpid vpid ] [ --apid apid ] rtpfeed --help rtpfeed --version DESCRIPTION
rtpfeed takes a unicast, multicast or broadcast RTP stream from a network (typically generated by dvbstream running on a server) and feeds it to a DVB-S card for decoding and display. As an RTP transport stream from dvbstream can contain multiple (up to eight) video streams and audio streams, the streams to display may be explicitly named on the command line. OPTIONS
-g, --group addr The IP address of the RTP stream. By default, this is 224.0.1.2. -p, --port portnum The IP port of the RTP stream. By default, this is 5004. -v, --vpid vpid The Video PID of the video stream to display. If none is specified, all present are fed to the DVB card. -v, --apid apid The Audio PID of the audio stream to display. If none is specified, all present are fed to the DVB card. --help display this help and exit --version output version information and exit SEE ALSO

NAME
dvbtune -- command-line tuning application for DVB cards SYNOPSIS
dvbtune -f frequency -p h|v -s symbol_rate -v vpid -a apid -t tpid DESCRIPTION
dvbtune is a simple tuning application for DVB cards supported by the Linux DVB driver (www.linuxtv.org). This is still very experimental - especially the XML output. The latest version can be found at www.linuxstb.org. You can contact the author at dave@dchapman.com. OPTIONS
The following options are understood by dvbtune: -c [0-3] Use DVB device [0-3] -f freq Absolute Frequency (DVB-S in Hz or DVB-T in Hz), or L-band Frequency (DVB-S in Hz or DVB-T in Hz). -p [H|V] Polarity (DVB-S only) -tone [0|1] 0 = 22 kHz off, 1 = 22 kHz on -I [0|1|2] 0 = Spectrum Inversion off 1 = Spectrum Inversion on, 2 = auto (Default) -S N Symbol rate (DVB-S only),e.g. 27500 -D [0-4] DiSEqc ("Digital Satellite Equipment Control") command (0=none) -V vpid Set video PID (Full cards only) -A apid Set audio PID (full cards only) -T ttpid Set teletext PID (full cards only) -pnr N Tune to Program Number (aka service) N -i Dump SI information as XML -x Attempt to auto-find other transponders (experimental) -m Monitor the reception quality -n dpid Add network interface and receive MPE on PID dpid --help Print help message --version Print version string EXAMPLES
For simple tuning, you can just use dvbtune -f 12188000 -p h -s 27500 -v 163 -a 104 -t 32 to tune to a satellite transponder and set the video, audio and teletext PIDs. dvbtune can also support DVB-T reception (currently for the UK only). In this case, you just need to specify the frequency: dvbtune -f 48183300 To get the DVB SI information for a multiplex, you can use the -i option. The output of dvbtune needs some addition lines before it is a valid XML file. To get the DVB SI information for a multiplex, you can use the "-i" option. The output of dvbtune needs some addition lines before it is a valid XML file. e.g. use a script containing echo '<?xml version="1.0"?>' > test.xml ; echo '<satellite>' >> test.xml ; dvbtune -f freq -s srate -p pol -i >> test.xml ; echo '</satel- lite>' >> test.xml to dump the SI for a satellite transponder. This was done to allow you to write scripts to scan multiple transponders and write the output to the same XML file. See the "scripts" subdirectory for examples. NOTES
dvbtune depends on the appropriate device nodes in /dev being present. These are either provided automatically by devfsd or udev, or must be made using /sbin/MAKEDEV dvb. The Debian package automatically runs MAKEDEV if necessary on install. SEE ALSO

dvbtune was written by Dave Chapman dave@dchapman.org. Hilmar Linder added the Switch -n that adds a network interface and switch -m that monitors the reception quality. Changed the tuning code. Added command line parameters for spectral inversion. Changed code to allow L-Band frequencies with -f switch. John Williams Added -D diseqc support, and made the 22kHz tone automatic again.
