Yes, no, almost there. Don't draw your conclusions yet.
dvbloop provides the fake module.
What I am looking for is a fake source for a dvb multiplex with 3 
channels or better.
The vlc approach, I assume, means that some other PC has to send out 
their received stream to this test-PC as well. Right?
If so: I suspect that this job might be too much for the EN12000.
I not: So you *are* proposing a standalone `fake` DVB-source?

Please let us know.
