Kamaelia docs : Kamaelia.Device.DVB.Core.DVB_Multiplex


For examples and more explanations, see the module level docs.

class DVB_Multiplex(Axon.ThreadedComponent.threadedcomponent)

This is a DVB Multiplex Tuner.

This tunes the given DVB card to the given frequency. This then sets up the dvr0 device node to recieve the data recieved on a number of PIDs.

A special case use of these is to tune to 2 specific PIDs - the audio and video for a specific TV channel. If you pass just 2 PIDs then you're tuning to a specific channel.

NOTE 1: This multiplex tuner deliberately does not know what frequency the multiplex is on, and does not know what PIDs are inside that multiplex. You are expected to find out this information independently.

NOTE 2: This means also that producing a mock for the next stages in this system should be relatively simple - we run this code once and dump to disk.

Methods defined here


You should be using the inbox/outbox interface, not these methods (except construction). This documentation is designed as a roadmap as to their functionalilty for maintainers and new component developers.


Got a problem with the documentation? Something unclear that could be clearer? Want to help improve it? Constructive criticism is very welcome - especially if you can suggest a better rewording!

Please leave you feedback here in reply to the documentation thread in the Kamaelia blog.
