.SH DESCRIPTION
DVBlast is a simple and powerful streaming application based on the linux-dvb
API. It opens a DVB device, tunes it, places PID filters, configures a CAM
module, and demultiplexes the packets to several RTP outputs.

DVBlast is designed to be the core of a custom IRD or CID, based on a PC with
Linux-supported DVB cards.

DVBlast does not do any kind of processing on the elementary streams, such as
transcoding or remultiplexing. it does not stream from plain
files, only DVB devices. If you were looking for these features, switch to VLC.
.SH OPTIONS

.TP
\fB\-A\fR, \fB\-\-asi\-adapter\fR
Read packets from an ASI adapter (0-n). If support for Deltacast ASI cards is
compiled in, prefix the adapter number with "deltacast:" to select a Deltacast
input. Deltacast inputs are numbered as (100 * card number) + channel number.
