dvbstream and TSReader under wine

For linux users.
Some notes on getting TSReader to work in linux, under wine,
using dvbstream to stream to localhost.

dvbstream binary available via ubuntu apt-get is too old, and won't work.
There's a newer dvbstream version 0.8 maintained here.
grab the source code here.

Since most anyone would be using the linux DVB_API 5.1 these days,
In tune.h change this line from
this will enable ATSC & QAM frontends.

compile with make
install to /usr/bin
sudo cp dumprtp /usr/bin
sudo cp dvbstream /usr/bin
sudo cp rtpfeed /usr/bin
sudo cp ts_filter /usr/bin
Now use dvbstream to tune to an ATSC channel, and stream the entire mux to local loopback using rtp unicast.

dvbstream -c 1 -f 586625 -vsb 8 -rtp -net 8192 8192

in another terminal session, run TSReader under wine
wine TSReader.exe -s
select the unicast RTP source, RTPUnicast.dll, and select the port ya used.
