I would like to stream a DVB-S2, H264 channel over my network to an STB.

I an using the TT 3200 DVB-S2 card with multiproto drivers from Igors repository.

So faar I have tried 3 different solutions:

1. Using szap2 & dvbstream

# szap2 -r -p 'ASTRA HD'
# dvbstream -udp -i -r 1234

2. Using szap2 and VLC

# szap2 -r -p 'ASTRA HD'
and setup VLC using the GUI to read from
/dev/dvb/adapter0/dvr0 and stream to

3. Use Windows with ProgDVB and stream to

Basically only the solution using Windows is working.

The streams from linux are all broken.
The video and audio stops every 5 seconds for 1 second.

So I can imagine 2 scenarios:

1. The stb0899 driver is broken and is producing a bad stream
2. The network streaming of VLC and dvbstream is broken

Do you know any other methods to stream a DVB-S2 channel over network?

Thanks, Artem
