Hello all,
        I’m hoping that perhaps someone can steer us on the right path. We’re a small Philadelphia-based TV station who wants to automate portions of our broadcast scheduler. I have purchased and built a SuperMicro server with a BlueFish444 SD|Lite Pro card. We have read the documentation on Mplayer in regards to driver support for using –vo switch options (from the command line), but we (the software developer and I) are not too clear on how we use the DVB Card/Hardware in conjunction with mplayer (e.g., stream an MPEG-2 out of the card using Mplayer). Obviously we’ve written automation to pipe out of the standard xv out, and it works beautifully—we just want it to go out of our new fancy BlueFish card. We're currently using the linux verson of mplayer (running on fedora core 8). Any help is much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
