Hi Bevan,

You might want to try using WireShark to look at the TS
as there is an issue with it sending zero length UDP packets which FFMPEG does not like.

Play also with my lkv373A.
Transport stream output is not workable "as is" as it is not a constant bitrate. Need a process to extract video PID and reprocess entire TS (as mention by Charles).
The encoder is probably a ITE IT9919 which is used in HV320E from Hides.
No parrallel output is possible but a serial one is written in the datasheet.

Video is quiet constant so working with this module seems a good option at least with a software job for post process.

I have been having a bit of a play and still needing to get on top of which firmware version is best, even in VLC at them moment I don't get a stable picture so I need to do more experimenting there.
I also used ffmpeg to replaced the pids within the rpidatv code (thinking that the process behind Vmix to RPIDATV works okay), but until I get stable video this process is not going to work either.
My current method is to receive the stream with your MNC code into a new rawvideots pipe, then ffmpeg this pipe into a mpegts setting pids etc and then piping back into videots for rpidatv's use. There is a little degradation of the stream via this method but at least the pids are manageable.
