I am trying to "hack" the ADB-3800 IPTV Box.


I have managed to "inject" my own H264 streams (1080i, HP at L4) into the box,
and the box played them without problems on my FullHD TFT using the HDMI
output. AC3 Audio worked also over the SPDIF/TOSLINK interface.

According to the specs the box can also decode VC1, but I don't have a
software which can stream a VC-1 TS stream to the box.

Any ideas on what software I can steam VC-1? I have used VLC for h264
streaming, but it does not work with VC-1.

This box can be obtained from eBay, starting at 40 Euro.

Maybe this can be a good alternative for the eHD card.
