Portsdown to drive DVB-T Dongle

Hi, all,
I wonder if the transport stream that is generated by the Portsdown software could be fed into a HIDES DVB-T dongle like the UT-100C to allow for a "Multimode" DATV transmitter. Has anybody tried this? How would I go about it? Or am I on a wrong track all together?

It might be possible using the TS Out function of the Portsdown. However, you would have to configure this through ssh using the console menu, as I have not made provision for this mode on the touchscreen. Neither have I tested it for over a year, so some bugs may have crept in.

I'd be interested to hear if you make it work.

Hi, Dave, and thank you for the hint,

are you referring to the UDP output of the TS? Ok, that could be received at localhost and piped to the IT95x driver, but I was hoping to grap the TS at where it is generated from whatever input comes out of the other pieces of the software.

I am going to fork the project and set up a dev environment to do some experiments. I shall report here...

Thanks for a great project; looks like you spent a lot(!) of time on it.
