MK802IV and Picuntu 4.5
Just a quick picture of DATV-Express running on a Rikomagic MK802IV quadcore
ARM device. The picture is of the device running Picuntu 4.5 and sending DVB-S at
12 MSymbols/sec with an FEC of 7/8 (which equates to 16 Mbits/s video).
I left it running for over an hour to check for stability. The DVB-S encoding was
being done in the FPGA so all the MK802IV was doing was reading the
program stream from the capture device, generating a valid transport stream and
sending the stream to the DATV-Express board.
