That's nice!

OK

I don't remember whether I tried this. I tried dumping the stream to a
file with dvbzap, which should work. By the way, I guess we should be
comparing the output to this

$ ffmpeg -f lavfi -i sine=frequency=1000:duration=5 -ac 2 -c:a s302m
-strict -2 out.ts

Since it produces a playable transport stream file that actually sounds
like a sine tone.

Inspecting ffmpeg & vidtv output side by side in dvbinspector, you'll
see that they're mostly the same. I have a separate PID for the PCR and
some other minor differences.

Sure. This is fun, sign me up for it.



As I said in a previous email, I think the buffer in vidtv_s302m.c is
not exactly what we want. It sounds like noise.

I got it from here:
https://www.daycounter.com/Calculators/Sine-Generator-Calculator.phtml

I will just copy what I had in a previous email here:

By the way, after some time trying out stuff, I guess this is actually
what we need in vidtv_s302m_write_frame:

static u32 vidtv_s302m_write_frame(struct vidtv_encoder *e,
				   u16 sample)
{
	u32 nbytes = 0;
	struct vidtv_s302m_frame_16 f = {};
	struct vidtv_s302m_ctx *ctx = e->ctx;

	/* from ffmpeg: see s302enc.c */

	u8 vucf = ctx->frame_index == 0 ? 1 : 0;

	f.data[0] = reverse[sample & 0xff];
	f.data[1] = reverse[(sample & 0xff00) >>  8];
	f.data[2] = (vucf << 4)  | (reverse[(sample & 0x0f)] >> 4);
	f.data[3] = reverse[(sample & 0x0ff0) >>  4];
	f.data[4] = reverse[(sample & 0xf000) >> 12] >> 4;

	nbytes += vidtv_memcpy(e->encoder_buf,
			       e->encoder_buf_offset,
			       VIDTV_S302M_BUF_SZ,
			       &f,
			       sizeof(f));

	e->encoder_buf_offset += nbytes;

	ctx->frame_index++;
	if (ctx->frame_index >= S302M_BLOCK_SZ)
		ctx->frame_index = 0;

	return nbytes;
}


i.e. see: https://docplayer.net/37828038-For-television-mapping-of-aes3-data-into-an-mpeg-2-transport-stream.html
Figure 5, page 4.




Lastly, I am somewhat new to C, so a few things might look odd here and
there. If you come across something that's too verbose tell me and I
will try to tidy it up.


--thanks
