DVB Network API
The DVB net device enables feeding of MPE (multi protocol encapsulation) 
packets received via DVB into the Linux network protocol stack, e.g. for 
internet via satellite applications. It can be accessed through 
/dev/dvb/adapter0/net0. Data types and and ioctl definitions can be accessed 
by including linux/dvb/net.h in your application.



What does this mean?  Is this just what it says, i.e. some ISPs can 
provision internet connection via satelleite?  If so, how does the transmit 

So /dev/dvb/adapter0/net0 could never be used by a DVB-T card?

Could you use this connection on a DVB-C card?  Bypassing the Cable Modem?
