I have been looking at doing some experiments with Linux on standard set
top boxes leveraging off the existing Linux DVB API. I was wondering if
the document on the web is current
(http://linuxtv.org/downloads/v4l-dvb-apis/pt02.html) since there seems
to be some missing parts.
For instance in the frontend there is no distinction between DVB-S &
DVB-S2, and there are definitely some missing S2 values, i.e.
- FEC values: 3/5, 9/10
- Modulation: auto and 8PSK
- No roll-off spec
In the demux API there seems to be no support for configuration of
hardware exclusion filtering in sections
To be clear this is not a criticism. I am just trying to establish if I
have the latest documents or if - for the purposes of my experiments - i
need to extend the capabilities of the devices.
Also, reading through the documentation I saw the following comment:
... Linux DVB-API called "S2API" and now DVB API 5
Is this a different API? Still in development?
