<br><br>My idea to hack the destination address was not needed, it is fine to configure the interface to promiscous mode (option promisc ifconfig) as you suggested. I also learned that an outgoing route can have a specific meaning for incoming multicast traffic.
<br><br>But: After doing all this I could still not receive anything. It seems that some (I still do not know which) kernel-options have to be set. At least I could not decode anything with vlc when running on Knoppix 5.2
(a livecd based on Debian) but I succeeded with Fedora 6 (Kernel <a href="http://188.8.131.52">184.108.40.206</a>). I also did a short test with a Gentoo live-CD, but that distribution did not even detect the USB-stick, so did no go ahead with it.
<br><br>Any idea which kernel-options are needed? My guess is that some multicast-routing options or protocols would be required but are not set by default on some distributions.<br><br>The current status is: I am able to receive DVB-H, all channels from the ongoing Vienna trial are in clear, so I can now receive ORF1,ORF2,ATV,ORF-Mobil,MTV,H3G1(aka 3Live), H3G2 (aka Urban TV) and the radio channels FM4, OE2W and OE3.
<br>There are a number decoding errors with interrupt the video/audio periodically, I am not sure if this is due to my weak signal, some problems in vlc or even problems on the encoder side. <br>From time to time reception locks up (especially when I zap aroung by removing and adding the network interface attaching it to different PIDs), and for some reason I only stay locked when tzap is running, when it is stopped the USB stick looses lock after a few seconds.
<br>If I can find a more stable solution I would now like to record and/or stream the multicast streams on my local network so that I could receive all the channels an any PC. But for the time being I'm not that far.<br>
<br>I've posted a short howto on my blog, just in case someone else is interested in receiving DVB-H:<br><br></div></div><a href="https://www.zlabinger.at/blog/2007/04/02/howto-receive-dvb-h-in-vienna">https://www.zlabinger.at/blog/2007/04/02/howto-receive-dvb-h-in-vienna
