We can use a USB TV tuner card to watch TV on Laptop or PC. Actually TV tuner has an RCA connection that takes the TV signal to the TV. We took that RCA cable and put in a TV capture card.
We can use some Software/Middleware i.e TVHome Media3, Beetel USB TV Tuner Card, Honestech TVR 2.5 TV tunner card.
1. Satellite Signal –>> RCA Cable –>> USB TV tuner –>> Red5/Wowza 🙁
DVI -> HDMI Satellite Signal splitter can’t split the signal into channels.
2. Satellite Signal –>> DVB-S Card –>> Mumudvb Software –>> Red5/Wowza 🙂
We must have satellite receiver which is capable of decoding the signal and output to TV in form of HDMI cable. The output signal to TV is then able to be moved from 1 channel to another on the TV.
MumuDVB is the software needed to catch/scan satellite signal and restream it to Media Server Like Wowza or Red5. MumuDVB use Multicast4 protocol for different channel frequencies and assign each stream to particular IP and Port. Those stream URLs can be used further for Re-Streaming.
