A DVB Analyzer
DVB Inspector is an open-source DVB analyzer, written in java. It can show the logical structure of the DVB SI and PSI data. It also shows bit rate usage data. DVB Inspector can be used to analyse contents; MPEG Video structure, teletext, DVB subtitles, DSM-CC Object carousels.
DVB Inspector is a program to analyze captured DVB-streams. It is not a real time tool that can interact with PC-TV DVB hardware directly. You have to use another program, like Twinhan TS capture tool or TransEdit to record a Transport stream.
Why was it created ?
As many programmers I too suffer from the "not invented here" syndrome. Every available program on the market is just not exactly what I want/need, or to expensive. So the only solution is to make it myself. Also this is a great way to study different aspects of DVB, and some aspects of Java I don't get to use in daily life.
There are a lot of programs that offer similar functionality. Some of them 'inspired' me. Also I have used them to verify my own results. Most of these are able to connect to DVB cards directly, and show real time results. In that way they are better than my tool. I think it is only fair to mention them (as a credit), and let the user decide which one he likes best.
You need to have at least Java 1.6 installed on your machine. If you don't know where to find it, or how to install it give up right now. This program is not for you.
Also you will need a decent amount of memory. 2 GB is recommended.
Why choose DVB Inspector over other programs? This is a list of advantages it may have over some other programs, but for your purpose it may not be the right choice. You decide.
