Analogue TV transmitter for the HackRF
-[ HackTV - Analogue TV transmitter for the HackRF ]-
WHAT'S IT DO
Generates a PAL, NTSC, SECAM*, D/D2-MAC video signal from a video file, stream or test pattern. Also supports older 819, 405, 240 and 30 line standards, as well as the NASA Apollo video standards, both colour and mono.
Input is any file type or URL supported by ffmpeg.
Output can be to a file, HackRF, fl2k-supported VGA adaptors or any SDR supported by SoapySDR.
It also supports:
Analogue Copy Protection system, similar to Macrovision
SECAM support is very basic and won't produce a good image
WHAT'S IT NOT DO (yet)
WHAT IT WON'T DO
Depends on libhackrf and various ffmpeg libraries.
For Fedora (with rpmfusion) yum install hackrf-devel osmo-fl2k-devel SoapySDR-devel ffmpeg-devel
For Debian and related apt-get update apt-get install libhackrf-dev libavutil-dev libavdevice-dev libswresample-dev libswscale-dev libavformat-dev libavcodec-dev
On Debian (sid) apt-get install hacktv
The hackrf is not designed to be connected directly to AV equipment and could be damaged by, or cause damage to, your receiver. Please ensure no DC voltages or control signals are sent back into the hackrf, and that the RF power levels out of the hackrf are not too high for your receiver.
