This is an application used to remotely access a DVB device over TCP/IP. To install it extract the archive content into your AltDVB’s directory.
The server is using one of the available interface libraries from .\Devices\ directory to access the DVB hardware. On network side, two TCP ports are used: one for commands (37000) and one for data (37001). You can change it by editing AltDVB_DevServer.cfg.

Warning: Be sure to stop the server if you want to use the same device directly in AltDVB !

To connect AltDVB to a remote server you have to manually edit Dev_Network.cfg. Please note that there is no autoreconnect feature: if the TCP/IP connection to the server is lost you have to restart the AltDVB.

Hello, Thank you very much for your software!! I use it by year 2000 or so. Best software for DVB ever made!
I am setting up a raspberry pi sat>pi server.
Is there a way to connect alt-dvb to a custom sat-pi server?
I tryed editing Dev_Network.cfg but it doesn't work.

In other simpler words I have a raspberry pi server running satpi software.
I'd like to connect to it with alt-dvb.

Thank you!
Massimo from Italy.

Hi Massimo ! Interface "Dev_Network" is useful to connect to AltDVB_DevServer, you cannot use it with an SAT>IP server.
I am working on an interface for SAT>IP but I don't know when it will be available, probably after AltDVB v2.4.
