Kamaelia docs : Kamaelia.Device.DVB.SoftDemux


class DVB_SoftDemuxer(Axon.AdaptiveCommsComponent.AdaptiveCommsComponent)

This demuxer expects to recieve the output from a DVB_Multiplex component on its primary inbox. It is also provided with a number of pids. For each pid that it knows about, it forwards the data received on that PID to an appropriate outbox. Data associated with unknown PIDs in the datastream is thrown away.

The output here is still transport stream packets. Another layer is required to decide what to do with these - to yank out the PES and ES packets.


  • control : We will receive shutdown messages here
  • inbox : This is where we expect to recieve a transport stream

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.
