Thats all that i know, i started with dvb about 2 months ago and your
card is supported unlike my TT Connect S2-3650 CI, but some how i
managed it to work.

output to a file this two command should work.
as always run szip2 first.

cat /dev/dvb/adapter0/dvr0 > test.mpg
or
dvbstream -o > test2.mpg

dvbstream v0.5 - (C) Dave Chapman 2001-2004
Released under the GPL.
Latest version available from http://www.linuxstb.org/
Output to stdout
Streaming 0 streams

works 100% here Streaming 0 streams i thinks because we are using
output to file instead of streaming over network.

to stream i use:
dvbstream 8192 -i 192.168.0.103 -r 1234

dvbstream v0.5 - (C) Dave Chapman 2001-2004
Released under the GPL.
Latest version available from http://www.linuxstb.org/
Setting filter for PID 8192
Using 192.168.0.103:1234:2
version=2
Streaming 1 stream


8192 means stream the whole TS stream, -i your ip address and -r is port number.

then run vlc (mine is in Swedish so I'm guessing here) File-> Open
Networkstream or press Ctrl+N. The first option UDP/RTP enter port
number press OK.

or from command line: vlc udp://@:1234

Don't worry if nothing shows as i said before you are streaming the
whole TS stream. you can select the channels you wanna watch.
To select channels click on (in swedish Navigering) translates
Navigation -> Program-> you should see list of channels.
