RpiDATV

RpiDATV is a software running on raspberry pi micro computer written by Evariste F5OEO. It encodes video and compute the QPSK baseband modulation.

History and updates

Latest version is now hosted on github. All instructions to build is there. Before that, complete SD image could be downloaded but size of download files is huge (1.2GBytes). Updates of image are also hard to maintain. In future, only some released versions could be built based on github sources.

Main output modes of operation

RF output (formaly named Ugly mode)

RF could be transmitted without any other hardware through a pin of the Raspberry pi header. It is mainly a test mode as QPSK spectrum is not filtered. By using harmonics it could be received directly by a set top box on L band.

IQ

I/Q modulation is provided out of 2 pins of the GPIO header. Hardware I/Q modulator is needed : RBMod, digilite, digithin, F4DAY, F1FAU , F1DJO, old broadcast modulators.

DATV Express

Send IP Transport stream to DATVExpress Server (G4GUO).
