I'd be very interested to learn more of your setup....specifically, what
is in your capturecards table and possibly any hiccups you ran into
Right now, I have two problems:
1) I can view and save the stream using VLC or Xine, but I do not get
any sound. I copied the test file to a windows box and did get sound
when watching VLC. I have tried to compare the file with known good
files saved off my HD DVB card and cannot tell the difference -- both
have A/52 set as the audio codec and MPEGTS for video.
2) I have tried several variations of URLs in the Mythtv setup, and myth
tries to record something, but I always end up with an empty file.
Here is some info about my setup -- Gentoo on Mythtv ebuild 0.20_p11626.
I currently have the URL set as this:
udp://22.214.171.124:2001?multicast=1. I also tried without "multicast=1".
I don't seem to be getting any errors in the log. I have two network
interfaces on the box -- wlan0 connects to the internet and I took the
ethernet cable from the Amino STB, put it into a hub, then one line to
the STB and one to the myth box on eth0. I had to add some routes so
the multicast addresses would listen on eth0. When I do a tcpdump, I
#tcpdump -i eth0 -c 10 udp
tcpdump: verbose output suppressed, use -v or -vv for full protocol
listening on eth0, link-type EN10MB (Ethernet), capture size 96 bytes

Any help with either of the two problems would be greatly appreciated!
The raw video quality is much better than what comes off my PVR-150
through an SVid cable, so I'm very excited about this (and freeing up a
PCI slot would be great too)!
