Hi Mauro,
Can you please give me some guidance as to how to discover
what format is output from the v4l-dvb driver.

The DVB-T standard is, as I understand it, MPEG2,
however with kaffeine, me-tv, mplayer if I record to a file,
(dump from the raw data stream),
it appears to be stored as a MPEG1 file.
If I use GOPchop, it will not open any of these files,
as it will only open MPEG2 files.

How can I find out if what is being broadcast is in fact MPEG2.
and then if what is ouput from the v4l-dvb driver is in fact MPEG2?
