By "windows", you mean Microsoft Windows? I didn't know that the
MS Windows frontend was working.

DummyDTVRecorder.cpp contains a comment listing different ways to
generate streams. Can you also try breaking up the different commands
and run one at a time until you can find which one is failing and
then replying with the output of the particular command that failed?

It's meant to be unobtrusive, but if you can get the mkdummyts.sh
working you can generate your own streams. My cable provider for
instance uses a black screen with green terminal style text that
says something like "no signal detected." when their network feed
goes out.
