if you mean DVB-T modulator stand alone (with ASI input), there are
plenty outside and they are all "linux-agnostic" so i'm not going to

if you mean DVB-T modulator PCI card, the situation is a bit messy, but
there are 2 cards we are focusing on:

dektec dta 110t:


alitronika at2800PCI:


and now about the mess:
we own a sample of the dektec and we were promised that a linux driver
should have been available RSN, BUT up to now, we didn't get it; i have
been told it's a problem of thirdy party algorithms (soft modulation?)
with a linux porting on-going..

WRT alitronika, at last IBC they told us the linux driver is ready and
open (because the card is fully "active") and the driver is very light
because is just a simple TS feeder to the device.

So, we are waiting for a sample card to test if these statements are true.

BTW both are not linuxdvb API compliant anyway.

and now about the IP encapsulator, if you want and have some technical
skill, you can use our free software JustDvb-It:


sadly, i have to say that you need to work a bit on it, because the IP
encapsulation module was present in an ancient release (0.3) but
recently this feature has been removed because it was a "proof of
concept" since we are focused more on the interactive television stuff
(DSM-CC, MHP etc..)

this is all i can tell you, for now. let me know if you want to work on it.
