DVB-T2 playback on Android

There are now a number of devices on the market that include a tuner in an Android device, which is not surprising as Android is basically linux however exposing the bitstream up through the Android stack is a bit trickier than in linux as standard libs that people would use such as V4L are not present.

In our testing the Amlogic SoC stack and open linux platform provide a good basis for this and they have also made available a good reference library for implementing the DVB protocols (T2 and S2 for now).

Will be posting more on this topic soon but for now here is a demo of DVB-T2 working off an Android device and captured via my desktop.
