|Configuration over a LAN|
|Express Server Box|
I continue to work on my remote TV system. DATV-Express and Odroid-C1 fit
nicely into a standard Hammond box (as can be seem in the bottom picture).
Above that is a Techno-Trend Connect S2-3600 DVB-S/S2 satellite receiver
which is now fully supported in the distribution of Linux that the Odroid runs.
Unfortunately the S2-3600 is no longer on sale but that is what happens in
the consumer electronics business. PC Linux tends to be behind the curve on
the devices it supports and ARM Linux is behind PC Linux.
The top picture is the configuration screen viewed on an iPhone 5. Before you
ask why the iPhone is so fat, it is because it is plugged into a FLIR IR camera body
I have yet to install a opto-isolator board into the server so I can do TX/RX and
band switching remotely. Also I have to add support for the receiver so I can
stream video across my LAN to various devices. I have some example code to
work from for the receive streaming so it shouldn't be too long before I have that
I am awaiting arrival of a Black Magic HDMI capture card. I finally got around to
reading the manual for my Cannon Legria HF-S30 Camcorder so I now know how
to stop it going to sleep every few minutes.
I am hoping to get this all done so we can re-start TV activity in the Worthing area
soon. I would also like to start trialling HEVC (h.265) transmissions now that
the codec in ffmpeg has started to mature.
