I'm looking for a way to provide tv signals to HDHomerun from an encrypted DVB-C tv source. My cable vendor encrypts all their signals, and they provide CAM-modules for anyone who doesn't want to use their set-top box. Unfortunately the HDHomerun Expand doesn't have a CI-slot for the CAM-module, so I have to figure something out to decrypt the signal before it arrives at HDHomerun. Any help at all would be much appreciated.
I'm thinking that the first step of the solution is to decrypt the signal. OpenELEC maintains a list of compatible tuners and the CT2-4650 looks like the most decent one with both CI-slot and DVB-C support.
Now that I have the decrypted MPEG-2/4 stream, I'm a bit stuck
- I can take the signal in on a raspberry pi, but how do I transmit it to the HDHomerun? Is it possible to provide the video signal through the http interface? Alternatively, how would I go about to write the signal to a Coax-cable?
- Is there any way to take the USB-input directly to HDHomerun and skip the raspberry pi all together? Can I force the tuner to use that input somehow?
