Ok , i get it now ,that i dont need to download anything.. I didnt start working on the laptop side of things tell just now.

you can probably open up the stream with vlc.
or open it with tsreader and re-stream to vlc.

my question is do we have to use a multicast address?  my switches are dumb (and cheap) and choke when all the ports are flooded.
another question is do we have to use SPTS?  while waiting for my dsr6000 to be shipped, been reading the manual and there is no mention of SPTS, just MPTS.

Ok step 9 on laptop completed. On both the laptop & 6050 i have Ip address 192.168.054.101 subnet mask 255.255.255.000 Defualt Gateway 192.168.054.100 on the Dsr 6050 only GiG-E SPTS address 239.100.100.100 port 08000 and on the laptop only, prefered DNS server 191.168. 0 . 1 so are we good at this point?

you cant give both the devices on the network the same ip address.
change the ip address on your laptop 192.168.054.102

next step is to download and install vlc https://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-windows.html

then open vlc and select "Media > Open Network Stream" from the top menu. 

then in the network URL type: udp://@239.100.100.100:8000

p.s. i am not sure if this is the correct way, just a guess.  hopefully @Mr_Uplink can confirm.

You are 100% correct Merkin!

As far as the SPTS, the 6000 can only output SPTS (Single Program Transport Stream) because the DSR can only tune and decrypt one program at a time.  Some other models of Motorola / Arris DSRs can do MPTS (Multi-Program Transport Stream).  These models would have -MD at the end of the model number (Such as the 4410-MD).  MD stands for Multi-Decryptor.  These units can decrypt or pass on an entire transponder over ASI or GigE from a single receiver.  Hope that helps.........

As far as your multicast question, the answer is yes.  You will flood the heck out of a "dumb" switch.  The Moto / Arris DSRs are designed with only multicast capabilities and not unicast. They rely on IGMP snooping capable hardware to avoid network congestion.  For testing purposes (such as what DC2 is attempting), I recommend connecting the DSR directly to the PC being used otherwise your network will grind to a halt.  If using it with a PC that you also require internet access, I recommend using a dedicated NIC and setting up the appropriate IP tables on the device. [thumb]

Yep! Merkin, you nailed it. I got it running just fine with both video and sound in HD. The IP addresses  above posted are not the same. But the change you made will most likely work too. That vlc program works for so many things and the best part is: IT IS FREE!
Roger

Edit: Seem we are all talking at the same time. Just wanted to add: HATS OF TO YOU TOO MR. UPLINK!  Your help was also outstanding.

Hey DC2,

So just to clarify, the IP settings on your laptop must be 192.168.054.102 and not the same as the DSR (as mentioned above by Merkin).

Once that setting is in place, we can proceed to test the stream using VLC.  This program (VLC) must originally be downloaded using the internet (you may have done that already, not sure).  It is available online at https://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-windows.html

Once it's 
installed, you will no longer require internet access for any further testing.

As Merkin posted above, open vlc and select "Media > Open Network Stream" from the top menu. 

then in the network URL type: udp://@239.100.100.100:8000

At this point, as long as your receiver is locked onto a valid DC2 (FP or ZK) signal, you should see and hear the output on your laptop.

Let me know how it goes..............................

J.J did you download the VLC program yet? Patch cable should work just fine. Also if you are blinking with the cable in gig-e, that is a very good sign (data streaming).

DC2,

The rapid blinking light is a VERY good thing.  That indicates that there is active traffic passing on the link.  It's a good indication that your firmware does actually support the GigE interface.  I'll check in periodically during the day tomorrow while I'm at work and see how you make out.  [comp]

thanks for the help.  the dsr-6000 was delivered. it was in broadcast control mode and i was locked out of the front panel, but a factory reset solved that issue.

it actually has four decryption lanes. in the decryption menu i can pair programs with decryption lanes. so i guess it is a 'multi-decoder'? (possibly firmware version dependent)
there is definitely not an SPTS mode. there are four modes:
1. MPTS
2. DSMCC
3. TS +DSMCC
4. Disabled

not sure what modes 2/3 are other than what google is telling me.

thanks for the confirmation.  i tried with a class C address, but it simply doesnt work unless i use a multicast address.  

so whats the deal with the FE port?  i was hoping this thing was running a web server, but i did a port scan with nmap and it doesnt look like any of the usual suspects are open (http/snmp/etc.) i do see 21 open (ftp).
i used to control the dsr-4800 via serial with tsreader.  sure wish i had a remote control option with dsr-6000.

here is the beauty shot:

this dsr-6000 was on ebay for $500, but i offered the seller $250 and he accepted (free shipping also)
the seller's name is itelements in case anyone else is interested.
