Local Oscillator

The Local Oscillator (L.O.) control specifies the frequency of the LNB local oscillator. The standard L.O. frequencies for “C” and “Ku” bands are 5150MHz and 10750MHz respectfully although, some other variants are included. If the desired L.O. frequency is not listed, select either C: Manual or Ku: Manual and enter the L.O. frequency in the Manual L.O. field.

Manual LO

Allows manual entry of the LNB Local Oscillator frequency provided that either C: Manual or Ku: Manual is selected from the Local Oscillator pulldown menu.

Downlink

Allows the operator to enter the satellite downlink frequency. The value for the Downlink frequency is used with the Local Oscillator frequency to calculate the L-Band frequency. The Downlink and Local Oscillator frequencies can be used to determine if spectrum inversion occurs using the following rules. If the Downlink frequency is less than the Local Oscillator frequency, then spectrum inversion does occur. If the Downlink frequency is greater than the Local Oscillator frequency, then spectrum inversion does not occur.

Range dependent upon LO configuration

L-Band

Allows the operator to enter the L-Band frequency within the range from 950MHz to 2.15GHz. The value entered in this field is used with the Local Oscillator frequency to calculate the Downlink frequency using the following rules. If Downlink < Local Oscillator, then Downlink - Local Oscillator = │L-Band│. If Downlink > Local Oscillator, then Downlink - Local Oscillator = L-Band.

note: 2150MHz may not be available on older premium demods, 1750MHz maximum.

Modulation Type

Allows the selection of the mod type.

DVBS

CCM Mode*

When the Constant Coding and Modulation (CCM) option is selected, the same modulation mode and FEC is used for all physical layer framing. The advantage of using DVB-S2 in the CCM mode is the improved protection that is achieved by utilizing the new inner and outer codes. Another advantage is the 30 percent increase in capacity that is realized while using the method. If Auto-CCM is selected, the receiver will detect and configure the Modulation Mode, Pilot, and Frame Type.

Adaptive Coding and Modulation (ACM) is available for receivers with the appropriate hardware and feature key. In this mode, modulation and coding can vary on a DVB-S2 frame by frame basis. Auto-CCM is the preferred method to automatically detect modcod, pilots and frame type. **This configuration is not available via front panel at this time.

note: this field is not applicable for DVB-S.  Similar functionality (AUTO MODCOD detection) can be used in DVB-S by using QPSK_AUTO or 8PSK_AUTO modulation modes.

Modulation Mode

This control allows the operator to select the desired modulation mode and FEC code rate.

 

note: This is a configuration value.  When in DVB-S2 AUTO-CCM mode, actual detected modulation can be found in the Quick View status.  QPSK_AUTO and 8PSK_AUTO configurations are only valid in DVB-S.  See how to appendix for automatic detection instructions.

Symbol Rate

The number of symbols transmitted per second. The amount of data per symbol is dependant upon the modulation type, e.g. QPSK, 8PSK, etc.

Range can be determined by feature key.

Acquisition Range

Acquisition Range is defined as the range of frequencies that the tuner will scan in order to achieve carrier synchronization. Allows the operator to select the range of frequencies that the RF tuner will sweep through to acquire the carrier. e.g. If the desired carrier is at 1.080GHz and the Acquisition Range is set to 5MHz, the RF tuner will sweep through 1.080GHz ± 2.5MHz to acquire the carrier. Units are in MHz.

note: Actual acquisition range available is symbol rate dependent for advanced and premium demods. If symbol rate < 5MBaud, maximum range is 1.5 * symbol rate.  If symbol rate > 5Mbaud, maximum range is 7.5MHz.

0 - 7.5MHz

Rolloff

The rolloff selection will determine the shape of the input filter. The occupied bandwidth of the modulated signal is the symbol rate multiplied by (1+α) where alpha (α) is the rolloff factor (%). By using a lower alpha, carriers can be spaced closer together on a given transponder or an increased symbol rate can be realized for a given bandwidth.

note: 5%, 10%, and 15% rolloff is only applicable in DVB-S2 with premium demodulators.  AUTO is only available in DVB-S.  If required for demodulators, contact support for firmware upgrade.

Pilot

DVB-S2 allows the option of inserting bursts of pilot tones that are very robust and prevents the carrier recovery system from failing prematurely. However, when pilots are enabled, the total data rate throughput is reduced by approximately 3.0%.

note: Pilot is not applicable in DVB-S or AUTO-CCM modes.

FEC Frame Type*

When operating in DVB-S2, the Frame Type options are either Normal or Short. The Normal 64,800-bit FEC frame provides better protection but introduces more latency compared to the Short 16,200-bit FEC frame. Therefore, the Short FEC frame type should be selected in applications where latency is critical and the longer frame type should be used to optimize protection.

note: FEC Frame type is not applicable in DVB-S or AUTO-CCM modes.

Latency

Multicast Latency sets the latency delay before the decoder begins playback from the multicast source and should be argued as a millisecond value.  

If the MULTICASTLATENT delay time is too large, and the internal delay buffer is about to overflow, the system will start the multicast playback early to prevent the overflow. A log message is generated when this condition occurs.

 

Multicast Timeout

Sets the timeout value for return to normal video playback after video multicast packets are no longer detected. The default timeout value is 300 milliseconds. If the timeout value is set too low, the multicast receive may timeout during normal reception if the packet transmission is bursty.

Chapter 2 - Getting Connected

Introduction to the Control Application

A web-based control software application comes pre-installed on the RD-60.  

Compatible browsers

Firefox (recommended)

MS Internet Explorer

Safari

Chrome

Ethernet Access

To begin, you will need to connect to your RD-60 via Ethernet directly, or by adding the RD-60 to your local area network. The default address for all Adtec devices is 192.168.10.48.

To connect directly to the device, make sure that your computer and the device have IP addresses within the same IP class range.

(ex. 192.168.10.48 for the device and 192.168.10.49 for your computer).  

If you need to change the IP address of the device, this can be done via the front panel, System > Network menu. Using a CAT 5 crossover cable, connect one end to your computer and the other to the Ethernet port found on the processor section of the back panel. (Some computers can auto negotiate the connection and a crossover may not be necessary.)

To add the device to a LAN, connect a standard CAT 5 Ethernet cable to your network router and then to the Ethernet port on the back of the device. If your network is DHCP enabled and you prefer that over a static IP, you can turn on DHCP for the device via the front panel, System > Network menu.

Zero Configuration Access

Adtec Digital has adopted zero-configuration networking technology, streamlining the setup and configuration processes for our products. The use of this technology enables automatic discovery of Adtec devices and services on an IP network. Used in tandem with the web-based control and configuration applications we can now provide 1-click access to any device.

By using the built-in Bonjour locater in Apple's Safari browser or the plug-ins readily available for IE or Firefox browsers, users can locate all of the Adtec devices on a network by referencing the serial number on the back of the device. Clicking on the unit in the Bonjour list will re-route you to a login page. If you do not wish to use Bonjour, you can reach the device’s web application by pointing your browser to the  IP Address of the device.  Ex. http://192.168.10.48/.

Login

Once you reach the default login page for the web-based application, you will need to login by pressing the login button. You will be prompted for a username and password. The default username is ‘adtec’. The default password is ‘none’.

The left-hand panel of the application will report current status in real-time while the right panel tabs will allow you to configure your device. As you navigate through the web application look for the ? icons associated with each parameter. By clicking on these question marks, you can view additional information about how the parameter is used.

Firmware Upgrade via Web User Interface

Periodically, we will provide firmware updates to our products via our website. (http://www.adtecdigital.com) To upgrade your device, download the firmware file from our website and store it locally. Login to the web-based application and navigate to the Upgrade > Firmware tab. Click on the upload button located at the top right of the application. Select the firmware file from your local machine and wait for it to upload. Once it has finished uploading, it will appear in the Available Versions list.

Click on the Install button associated with the new file. Wait for it to completely extract and become available in the Installed Versions List. Once available there, simply click on the Select button associate with the new firmware and wait for your device to reboot.

Demodulator Firmware Upgrade via Web User Interface

In some cases, Adtec may provide a modulator or demodulator firmware upgrade.  These are handled separately than standard product firmware upgrades because they can take longer than a product firmware update and should be planned during maintenance windows.  Adtec currently has several demodulator versions that include ADV, LB and PRM models.  Each demodulator hardware type has a unique demod firmware version and must be upgraded with a compatible version.

To upgrade, first determine the installed demodulator type and firmware version.  Visit the Upgrade -> Features tab.  The ‘BOARDS INFO’ table slot 99 will contain the installed demodulator version.

The above example shows a PRM demod running demod version 1.17.  In this case, a 7044AB firmware file name is required to update this demodulator.  If a demodulator firmware is provided for any reason, please make sure the firmware type provided matches the hardware type of the unit it is being installed on.  The demod firmware may be upgraded similarly to a product firmware upgrade.

Click on the upload button located at the top right of the application.  Select the firmware file from the local computer and wait for it to upload.  Once it has finished uploading, it will appear in the Available Demodulator Versions list.

The time required to update firmware varies on hardware model and should be accounted for during the maintenance windows.

Estimated Time required to update firmware:

LB Demod firmware update - ~6 minutes

ADV Demod firmware update - ~12 minutes

PRM Demod firmware update - ~26 minutes

Once the version is seen on the Upgrade -> Firmware tab, click ‘SELECT’ to start the upgrade process.  A status bar will appear and will progress as the firmware update commences.  When the firmware update is complete, reboot the unit and verify the firmware version again on the Upgrade -> Features Tab.

!!NOTE!!  It is only recommended to update during a planned maintenance window.  If a firmware upgrade fails for any reason, it is OK.  Just try the upgrade again by clicking on the ‘SELECT’ button.  The upgraded version can be verified by visiting the Upgrade -> Features tab after reboot.  It is recommended to delete the file after a successful upgrade by clicking the ‘DELETE’ button.  

Upgrading Via FTP & Telnet

For those times when using the web user interface is not convenient, you can upload the firmware file via ftp and then extract and select into it via Telnet.

File Transfer Protocol (FTP)

FTP connections can be made to the Adtec device using any ftp client.

Host: <ipa of the unit>

Default Username: adtec

Default Password: none

Port: 21

You will want to drop the firmware file in the media/hd0/media folder.

Telnet (standard 23 port)

To connect to your unit using a terminal session you will need to set the IP address of the unit. See earlier instructions on setting the IP via the front panel.

Using a terminal window, complete the following:

Step

Action

1

Type 'telnet x.x.x.x' in a terminal window, without quotes, where x.x.x.x is the IP address of the unit.

2

Press <Enter>.

3

When prompted for a username, enter adtec.

4

When prompted for a password, enter none.

Once you see "User 'adtec' connected", the session is open and you may issue API commands to the unit.

To extract and select into the new firmware version you have uploaded, issue the following commands.

*.sysd version search

Copy the line designating the location of the new file.

Then type:

*.sysd version extract “copied path to new file”

Wait for the extraction to complete.  Once complete, type the following command:

*.sysd version

Copy the line referencing the firmware version you wish to use and then issue the following command.

*.sysd version select “copied new firmware version”

Once you press enter, this will reboot your device into the new version.

In Field Feature Upgrades

Unit features can be upgraded in the field via the web user interface.  Keys can either be temporary (feature will stop working after a set amount of time) or permanent (key is good for the life of the product).  To purchase a permanent key, please provide your unit serial number and product ID from the Upgrade -> Features tab to your sales representative.  If a temporary key is required, the Temporary ID will also be required.

Permanent Key Instructions

A permanent unlock key can be provided via email or verbally if internet access is not available.  To enter the unlock key:

Step

Action

1

Click on the ‘Input Key’ button next to the desired feature.

2

Enter the supplied key into the pop-up dialog box and click OK.

3

The feature status should change from ‘DISABLED’ to ‘ENABLED’.

4

In some cases, a reboot of the unit may be required after a state change to ‘ENABLED’. Reboot unit if enabled feature does not function.

Temporary Key Instructions

If a temporary key is provided, it will be in the form of an email attachment. Temporary keys are not entered through the ‘Input Key’ button. Instead, they are transferred to the unit through the use of the file transfer utility via the ‘Upload’ button.  The ‘Upload’ button is found in the top right hand corner of the Web UI.

Step

Action

1

Download the temporary key file to your computer provided by your representative.

2

Click on the ‘Upload’ button in the top right hand corner of the Web UI.

3

Browse for the supplied ‘ASC’ file from the file browser pop-up and click ‘Open’

4

The page should reload and feature status should change from ‘DISABLED’ to ‘ENABLED’ with a ‘Days Left’ count.  This count determines how many days the key will function before returning to a ‘DISABLED’ state.

5

In some cases, a reboot of the unit may be required. Reboot unit if enabled feature does not function.

Chapter 3 - Operational How-Tos

DVB-S / DVB-S2 AUTO Modes (ADV and PRM)

The RD-60 Advanced and Premium demodulators support automatic modulation and coding mode detection.  The minimum amount of configuration required in auto modes is downlink frequency, symbol rate, and rolloff.  In DVB-S mode, selecting QPSK_AUTO or 8PSK_AUTO from modulation mode will automatically detect the coding scheme for DVB-S modulated carriers. For DVB-S2 modes, selecting AUTO-CCM from the CCM configuration will automatically detect the modulation and coding scheme for DVB-S2 modulated carriers.

DVB-S / DVB-S2 AUTO Modes (LB option)

The RD-70 with L-Band demodulator (LB) option supports automatic detection of modulation type and symbol rate on two RF inputs. In fully automatic mode, the minimum configuration requirement is L-Band frequency. The demodulator is running in fully automatic mode when the type is set to ‘AUTO’ and the symbol rate is set to ‘0’ or ‘AUTO’.

Notes about demodulator:

DVB-S2 - Recommended use of Pilots

The use of DVB-S2 pilots within the modulated carrier are recommended under certain conditions.  With the following configurations, Pilots are recommended:

How to use RF Profiles (LB option)

The RD has capability to create profiles from the current running RF configuration and load it at a later time.

UDP / RTP / FEC / TCP IP Rx

The RD-60 supports a number of IP based protocols for the reception of transport streams via private and public networks.  The RD-60 will automatically determine if an IP stream is UDP, RTP, or a SMPTE-2022 FEC stream.  TCP reception is a less common implementation for transmission of broadcast transport streams, but has recently been added to the RD-60.

UDP ( User Datagram Protocol ) multicast/unicast streams are commonly used for broadcast transport streams in local or private networks that contain little to no packet loss.  UDP offers no protection against dropped packets or packets received out of order (usually due to packets taking a different amount of time to traverse network devices).  Due to the low reliability of UDP, it is NOT recommended to be used over the public internet or in environments where the potential of packet loss, increased jitter, or out of order packets is high.  If packets are lost or received out of order, service anomalies will occur.  The RD-60 supports up to 100Mbps when a 7 DVB Packet payload exists for each UDP packet.

RTP ( Real-time Transport Protocol ) is another type of multicast/unicast stream that is better to use than UDP in some environments.  RTP is built upon the building blocks of UDP, but adds packet sequence identification.  Packet sequencing gives a receiver the information needed to detect and correct packets that were received ‘out of order’.  RTP is highly recommended when timely delivery of each consecutive packet may not be guaranteed.  The RD-60 supports up to 100Mbps when a 7 DVB Packet payload exists for each RTP packet.

RTP + FEC or SMPTE-2022 is an additional method used in dealing with lost packets, where RTP alone can only tolerate packets received out of order.  FEC ( Forward Error Correction ) streams add overhead to the overall data rate, but add protection in case of a lost packet.  FEC ( detection and correction of lost packets ) adds latency and data overhead as opposed to UDP where no protection mechanisms exist.  The amount of packet redundancy and overhead can be configured at the RTP/FEC transmitter.  Each multicast/unicast FEC stream is transmitted on base port N and two FEC streams are sent on N+2 and N+4 respectively.  When receiving FEC streams behind firewalls, please bear in mind that two additional ports ( N+2 and N+4 ) must be allowed through for proper error recovery to occur.  The RD-60 supports up to 45Mbps SMPTE-2022 when a 7 DVB Packet payload exists for each RTP packet.

TCP ( Transmission Control Protocol ) support, a connection based protocol, has recently been added at an attempt to overcome some of the fundamental limitations of UDP and RTP.  UDP and RTP are ‘one way street’ types of protocols where the transmitter sends data and never knows if the data makes it to the destination.  TCP streams generally have higher latency ( takes longer to transmit data and verify data has been transmitted ), but are more reliable because each packet is accounted for by the receiver.  If a packet is lost, the transmitter will be informed to re-transmit the packet.  The transmitter and receiver continue to communicate about the quality of the reception and attempt to adjust packet delivery accordingly.  The TCP mechanism when combined with large IP receive buffers can be more forgiving with packet loss, jitter, and out of order packets.  The RD-60 supports up to 15 Mb/s when a 7 DVB Packet payload exists for each TCP packet.  Multicast is not supported with TCP streams.

The RD-60 supports both unicast ( point to point ) and multicast ( broadcast ) streams.  The RD-60 operates in UDP/RTP mode by default.  To setup an IP Rx session, first configure the IP Rx operation mode. A unit reboot is required (WebUI asks for confirmation when changing) when changing between UDP/RTP Rx and TCP Rx modes.

Multicast Reception - Address

To receive a multicast (UDP/RTP/SMPTE2022) stream, place the multicast address wished to view in the ‘Address’ field.  This address must match the same address used on the multicast transmitter.  Multicast IP address ranges are 224.xxx.xxx.xxx to 239.xxx.xxx.xxx, where 0 <= xxx <= 255.  If you are new to multicast and attempting a first time connection, 226.0.1.1 is a common address to start with.  Please verify transmitter address configuration.

Optionally, the source specific multicast address (The actual IP address of the sending device) may be entered for IGMPv3 applications.  Configuring the Source Address will allow multicasts to be received from the entered address and entered address only. This configuration is non-functional for Unicasts.  For IGMPv2 applications the source address can be set to 0.0.0.0.

Unicast Reception - Address

To receive a unicast (TCP/UDP/RTP/SMPTE2022) stream, enter 0.0.0.0 in the ‘Address’ field.  The unit will be ‘listening’ for any streams sent directly to it.  Refer to your IP transmitter documentation for proper configuration of the transmitter.

Unicast/Multicast Reception

Enter the port number in the ‘port’ field.  The port number must match the port number used on the transmitter where the range is 0 to 65535.  When 0, multicast is disabled.  If you are new to multicast and attempting a first time connection, 2000 is a common port to start with.  Please verify transmitter port configuration.

Choose the IP Rx ‘Connector’ dependent upon your network setup.  Adtec recommends using the GigE port for all IP receptions.  

Once IP Rx is configured, click Apply.

Visit the Input -> Service tab and click the ‘Select first found’ radio button to enable IP reception.  IP service names will populate in the service list.

‘Select first found’ is also available via the Front Panel -> Services Menu -> Select First configuration.  Use the left/right arrows to select [IP], press select, then press enter to start IP receiving.


Dolby E, Dolby D, LPCM, and Mpeg1Layer2

As of 1.07.01 firmware, the RD-60 supports 16 channels of SDI embedded audio output with support of up to two audio pass-throughs, up to 8 pairs (sixteen channels) of Mpeg 1 Layer 2 audio, and up to 8 pairs of Dolby Digital decoding. An audio pass-through consists of a Dolby E 20 Bit, Dolby E 16 Bit, Dolby Digital, or a Linear PCM stream that is preserved (not decoded) from the transport stream and embedded on the SDI output.  

Mpeg 1 Layer 2 decode support includes 48kHz 32 - 384kbps.  Interoperability support includes stream type 0x03 and stream type 0x04, PES aligned and unaligned audio, and also includes Mono ( with audio duplication feature ), Dual Mono, and Stereo decoding.

Dolby Digital decode support includes a stereo output pair for each Dolby Digital Audio PID assignment ( multi-channel Dolby Digital 5.1 for example is down-mixed to 2/0 ).

The RD-60 automatically configures the audio engines upon acquisition of a program when engines and sdi matrix are configured to ‘AUTO’.  The audio is automatically output based on ascending audio PID order from the selected program.  The left hand status panel of the Web UI shows current active SDI audio output.  The current left hand status panel audio type codes are as follows:

MU - Configured for Mpeg1Layer2 decoding ( stream type 0x03 / 0x04 )

DD - Configured for Dolby Digital decoding ( stream type 0x81 / 0x06 )

DP - Configured for Dolby Digital pass-through ( stream type 0x81 / 0x06 )

LP - Configured for LPCM pass-through

DE - Configured for Dolby E pass-through ( 16 / 20 Bit support )
AA - Configured for AAC decoding (AAC-LC)

Advanced configuration is available via the Audio tab to users that need to select custom PID’s, disable audios, and duplicate audio pairs.  

Dolby E line placement is handled automatically to meet Dolby Labs specification. Some users may need custom line placement. If the customer Dolby E line placement is out of specification, the RD will revert line placement to the automatic in range value.  Please see table in notes for Dolby E line placement recommendations.

AFD - Active Format Description

Active Format Description (AFD) contains aspect ratio and handling information utilized to aid in picture presentation of downstream devices. This is used most often by down-converters and set top boxes.

AFD carriage can be carried within a transport stream as a unique ANC PID (ancillary pid), within the video elementary stream as SEI data (H264), or user data (MPEG2). The RD-60 does not support AFD via an ANC PID at this time.

The RD-60 AFD implementation preserves the native AFD code from the video elementary stream and is inserted into the SDI ancillary data output.  SDI line number for AFD carriage is configurable via the VBI tab.  The DID/SDID, AFD code, and aspect ratio flag can be seen in the VBI Output table via the VBI tab.

 


Genlock System

The RD-60 can synchronize its SDI and CVBS outputs to an external sync signal using the SYNC IN input and the Genlock control system. The SYNC IN input signal's frame synchronization is used to generate SDI and CVBS output pixel clocks, frame synchronization and audio clocks that are locked to the SYNC IN reference. The video decoder will automatically skip or repeat video frames as needed to adjust to differences between the SYNC IN clock and the decoder source clock (which is synchronized to the stream's PCR data). The audio system uses a sample rate converter to adjust to differences between the decoder source clock and the SYNC IN clock for the lower four pairs of audio output.

The Genlock system will automatically cross lock for all resolutions within the 60 HZ standard, all resolutions within the 59.94 Hz standards or all resolutions within the 50 Hz standards. It does not cross lock between 50 HZ, 60 and 59.94 Hz standards at this time. This allows the SYNC IN signal to be valid for compatible decoded streams (EG: An NTSC black burst SYNC IN signal can be used to Genlock a 1080I59 feed).

The Genlock system can be configured in two modes. Genlock SLAVE mode is used when the SYNC IN signal is synchronous with the decoded stream (both signals are using the same 27 MHz source clock). This mode allows two RD-60's to be used for receiving 3D signals, or when the decoded source is using the same clock base as the SYNC IN. This mode bypasses the need for the audio sample rate converters. Genlock REMOTE mode is used when the SYNC IN signal does not use the same 27 MHz clock source as the decoded stream. This mode enables the audio sample rate converters for the lower four pairs of audio output. The upper four pairs can still be used, but there may be an audible artifact as the clock phase differences are resolved.

The SYNC IN input will accept standard analog video sync for NTSC, PAL, 480I/P, 576I/P, 720P, and 1080I/P from Composite Video (CVBS). The input can accept Bi-level and Tri-level sync signals. The signal is processed to create synchronous audio and video clocks and to frame align the SDI and CVBS outputs with the input sync signal. Generally, the output will be automatically aligned within a few pixel clocks of the input.

If the Genlock system is locked, and the SYNC IN is removed, the system will attempt to maintain the clocks and frame reference with the last known locked frequency. There may be some clock drift over time. If the decoder is stopped and restarted in this mode, the Genlock system will use the decode source clock and operate in a 'free-run' mode until the reference is re-applied. The video and audio will be lost for a short time when the SYNC IN reference is restored.

When the Genlock mode is changed, the Genlock system will automatically be reset. This will cause a brief disturbance of the video and audio outputs.


TS Out Decrypt

TS Out Decrypt is a new feature of the RD product line that determines how BISS encrypted transport streams are processed. This configuration provides end users flexibility in how the RD is used. The TS Out Decrypt configuration determines if the ASI output should mirror the selected input (OFF), thus preserving any encrypted streams or if it should be decrypted / free to air (ON).

TS Out Decrypt should be set to OFF, the default configuration, if the IRD is to be used in a confidence decode / turn around application. A confidence decode / turn around application can involve the IRD being used a turn around device ( IP to ASI or RF to ASI ) where the user wants to preserve encryption on the ASI output, but also wants to decode one of the programs coming. This configuration also allows the RD to ingest encrypted MPTS streams that may be over the 120Mb/s limit. A sample diagram of how the transport stream is passed to the ASI output through the system is shown below.

If the user wants to use the IRD as a decoder and decrypter, the TS Out Decrypt configuration should be set to ON. All programs will be decrypted with the user supplied BISS key and transported to the ASI output. This application is useful for users that want to redistribute the stream to other non-BISS devices, such as transport stream analyzers or third party decoders. Please note that when in this mode, total transport stream throughput must not exceed 120Mb/s at this time.

Appendix A - GNU General Public License

Version 2, June 1991 Copyright (C) 1989, 1991 Free Software Foundation, Inc.

59 Temple Place, Suite 330, Boston, MA 02111-1307 USA

Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.

Preamble

The licenses for most software are designed to take away your freedom to share and change it. By contrast, the GNU General Public License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free software--to make sure the software is free for all its users. This General Public License applies to most of the Free Software Foundation's software and to any other program whose authors commit to using it. (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by the GNU Library General Public License instead.) You can apply it to your programs, too.

When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it in new free programs; and that you know you can do these things.

To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights. These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it.

For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that you have. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the source code. And you must show them these terms so they know their rights.

We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and (2) offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy, distribute and/or modify the software.

Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free software. If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we want its recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original authors' reputations.

 Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software patents. We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the program proprietary. To prevent this, we have made it clear that any patent must be licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at all.

The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and modification follow.

GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION

0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed under the terms of this General Public License. The "Program", below, refers to any such program or work, and a "work based on the Program" means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law: that is to say, a work containing the Program or a portion of it, either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another language. (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in the term "modification".) Each licensee is addressed as "you". Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not covered by this License; they are outside its scope. The act of running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program is covered only if its contents constitute a work based on the Program (independent of having been made by running the Program). Whether that is true depends on what the Program does.

1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program's source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any warranty; and give any other recipients of the Program a copy of this License along with the Program. You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a fee.

2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion of it, thus forming a work based on the Program, and copy and distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1 above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:

a) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices stating that you changed the files and the date of any change.

b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in whole or in part contains or is derived from the Program or any part thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third parties under the terms of this License.

c) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively when run, you must cause it, when started running for such interactive use in the most ordinary way, to print or display an announcement including an appropriate copyright notice and a notice that there is no warranty (or else, saying that you provide a warranty) and that users may redistribute the program under these conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy of this License. (Exception: if the Program itself is interactive but does not normally print such an announcement, your work based on the Program is not required to print an announcement.)

  These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole. If identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Program, and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those sections when you distribute them as separate works. But when you distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it.

Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or collective works based on the Program. In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program with the Program (or with a work based on the Program) on a volume of a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under the scope of this License.

3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it, under Section 2) in object code or executable form under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:

a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable source code, which must be distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,

b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three years, to give any third party, for a charge no more than your cost of physically performing source distribution, a complete machine-readable copy of the corresponding source code, to be distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,

c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer to distribute corresponding source code. (This alternative is allowed only for noncommercial distribution and only if you received the program in object code or executable form with such an offer, in accord with Subsection b above.)

The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for making modifications to it. For an executable work, complete source code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used to control compilation and installation of the executable. However, as a special exception, the source code distributed need not include anything that is normally distributed (in either source or binary form) with the major components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the operating system on which the executable runs, unless that component itself accompanies the executable.

If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering access to copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent access to copy the source code from the same place counts as distribution of the source code, even though third parties are not compelled to copy the source along with the object code.

4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program except as expressly provided under this License. Any attempt otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License. However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under this License will not have their licenses terminated so long as such parties remain in full compliance.

5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not signed it. However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or distribute the Program or its derivative works. These actions are prohibited by law if you do not accept this License. Therefore, by modifying or distributing the Program (or any work based on the Program), you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so, and all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying the Program or works based on it.

6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the Program), the recipient automatically receives a license from the original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to these terms and conditions. You may not impose any further restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein. You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties to this License.

7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues), conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not excuse you from the conditions of this License. If you cannot distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you may not distribute the Program at all. For example, if a patent license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Program by all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to refrain entirely from distribution of the Program. If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under any particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to apply and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other circumstances. It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any patents or other property right claims or to contest validity of any such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the integrity of the free software distribution system, which is implemented by public license practices. Many people have made generous contributions to the wide range of software distributed through that system in reliance on consistent application of that system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he or she is willing to distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot impose that choice. This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to be a consequence of the rest of this License.

8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the original copyright holder who places the Program under this License may add an explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding those countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or among countries not thus excluded. In such case, this License incorporates the limitation as if written in the body of this License.

9. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions of the General Public License from time to time. Such new versions will be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to address new problems or concerns. Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the Program specifies a version number of this License which applies to it and "any later version", you have the option of following the terms and conditions either of that version or of any later version published by the Free Software Foundation. If the Program does not specify a version number of this License, you may choose any version ever published by the Free Software Foundation.

10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free programs whose distribution conditions are different, write to the author to ask for permission. For software which is copyrighted by the Free Software Foundation, write to the Free Software Foundation; we sometimes make exceptions for this. Our decision will be guided by the two goals of preserving the free status of all derivatives of our free software and of promoting the sharing and reuse of software generally.

NO WARRANTY

11. BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. EXCEPT WHEN OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES PROVIDE THE PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS WITH YOU. SHOULD THE PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR CORRECTION.

12. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR REDISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES, INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER PROGRAMS), EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.

END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS

How to Apply These Terms to Your New Programs

If you develop a new program, and you want it to be of the greatest possible use to the public, the best way to achieve this is to make it free software which everyone can redistribute and change under these terms.

To do so, attach the following notices to the program. It is safest to attach them to the start of each source file to most effectively convey the exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least the "copyright" line and a pointer to where the full notice is found.

<one line to give the program's name and a brief idea of what it does.> Copyright (C) <year> <name of author>

This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by the Free Software Foundation; either version 2 of the License, or (at your option) any later version.

This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful, but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. See the GNU General Public License for more details.

You should have received a copy of the GNU General Public License along with this program; if not, write to the Free Software Foundation, Inc., 59 Temple Place, Suite 330, Boston, MA 02111-1307 USA

Also add information on how to contact you by electronic and paper mail.

If the program is interactive, make it output a short notice like this when it starts in an interactive mode:

Gnomovision version 69, Copyright (C) year name of author Gnomovision comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY; for details type `show w'. This is free software, and you are welcome to redistribute it under certain conditions; type `show c' for details.

The hypothetical commands `show w' and `show c' should show the appropriate parts of the General Public License. Of course, the commands you use may be called something other than `show w' and `show c'; they could even be mouse-clicks or menu items--whatever suits your program.

You should also get your employer (if you work as a programmer) or your school, if any, to sign a "copyright disclaimer" for the program, if necessary. Here is a sample; alter the names:

Yoyodyne, Inc., hereby disclaims all copyright interest in the program `Gnomovision' (which makes passes at compilers) written by James Hacker. <signature of Ty Coon>, 1 April 1989 Ty Coon, President of Vice

This General Public License does not permit incorporating your program into proprietary programs. If your program is a subroutine library, you may consider it more useful to permit linking proprietary applications with the library. If this is what you want to do, use the GNU Library General Public License instead of this License.
