       zvbi-atsc-cc - ATSC Closed Caption decoder


       zvbi-atsc-cc [ options ] [-n] station name


       zvbi-atsc-cc  captures  ATSC  TV transmissions using a Linux DVB device
       and decodes the enclosed Closed Caption data. It can record  both  NTSC
       caption (EIA 608-B) and DTVCC caption (CEA 708-C).


       -? -h --help --usage
              Print a short usage message.

       -q --quiet
              Suppress all progress and error messages.

       -v --verbose
              Increase verbosity.

   Device options
       -a number
       --adapter-num number
              Select   a   different   DVB   device   to  capture  the  signal
              (/dev/dvb/adapterN). The default is adapter 0.

       -i number
       --frontend-id number
              Select   a   different    frontend    on    the    DVB    device
              (/dev/dvb/adapterN/frontendM).   Most   devices  have  only  one
              frontend.  The default is frontend 0.

       -d number
       --demux-id number
              Select   a   different   demultiplexer   on   the   DVB   device
              (/dev/dvb/adapterN/demuxM).   Most   devices   have   only   one
              demultiplexer.  The default is demultiplexer 0.

       -r number
       --dvr-id number
              Select  a  different   DVR   interface   on   the   DVB   device
              (/dev/dvb/adapterN/dvrM).   Most   devices  have  only  one  DVR
              interface.  The default is DVR interface 0.

       --ts   Decode an MPEG-2 Transport Stream on standard input  instead  of
              opening  a  DVB  device.  This  option  is  mainly  intended for

              Since Transport Streams can contain multiple programs  you  must
              still specify one or more station names, which zvbi-atsc-cc will
              look up in a channel configuration file to determine the Program
              ID  of the video elementary stream or streams it should extract.
              You should also add the --atsc option to clarify that this is an
              ATSC   TS   and  the  program  should  expect  an  azap  channel
              configuration file, which is otherwise  inferred  from  the  DVB
              device capabilities.

   Tuning options
       -e file name
       --channel-conf file name
              To   tune   in   a  TV  station  zvbi-atsc-cc  needs  a  channel
              configuration file. We use the config file of  the  azap  tuning
              tool  from  the linuxtv-dvb-apps package. You can create it with
              the scan tool from the same package.

              The azap channel configuration file is a text file  which  lists
              one station per line. Each line contains six fields separated by
              a colon: The station name, the transponder frequency in Hz,  the
              modulation used (8VSB, 16VSB, QAM_64, QAM_256), the video stream
              PID, the audio stream PID, and the service ID. Empty  lines  and
              lines starting with a number sign will be ignored.

              This option selects a different channel configuration file.  The
              default is

       -L --list
              List all stations in the channel configuration  file  and  their
              transponder frequency.

       -n station name
       --station station name
              The station to tune in. Usually the -n can be omitted.

              zvbi-atsc-cc  can  record caption from multiple stations at once
              if they share a transponder  frequency.  Just  specify  multiple
              station names on the command line to enable this.

   Caption options
       With  the  caption  and XDS options you specify which data zvbi-atsc-cc
       should extract. If multiple station names are given these options apply
       to  the succeeding station name. You must specify at least one of these
       options for each station.

       -c --cc
              Print any received caption on standard output.

       -C file name
       --cc-file file name
              Append any received caption to the specified file.

       -l number
       --channel number
              Print NTSC Closed Caption channel 1,  2,  3  or  4  on  standard

       -1 ... -4 file name
       --cc1-file ... --cc4-file file name
              Filter  out  NTSC  Closed Caption channel CC1 ... CC4 and append
              the text to the specified file. CC1  is  the  primary,  CC3  the
              secondary  caption service. If both services are transmitted CC1
              usually carries English, CC3 Spanish caption.

       -5 ... -8 file name
       --t1-file ... --t4-file file name
              Filter out NTSC Text service T1 ... T4 and append  the  text  to
              the specified file.

       -9 ... -0 file name
       --s1-file ... --s2-file file name
              Filter  out  DTVCC  service  1  or  2 and append the text to the
              specified  file.  Service  1  is  the  primary,  service  2  the
              secondary  caption  service.  If  both  services are transmitted
              service 1 usually carries English, service 2 Spanish caption.

              Digital TV stations are supposed to transmit language codes  and
              other information about the available caption services but these
              are not presently  evaluated.   zvbi-atsc-cc  filters  out  text
              which  does  not  appear  to  be  caption,  such  as  tickers or
              vertically printed text.

       -b --no-webtv
              Do not print WebTV links.

       -m --timestamps
              Prepend timestamps (YYYYMMDDHHMMSS) to caption lines.

       -s --sentences
              Print caption one sentence at a time.

       -j type
       --format type
              When type is "plain" zvbi-atsc-cc prints caption  and  XDS  text
              without   any   markup.  When  type  is  "vt100"  it  faithfully
              reproduces the caption foreground and background  color,  italic
              and  underline  attributes  by inserting VT.100 terminal control
              codes. With type "ntsc-cc" it mimics the output of  the  ntsc-cc
              and zvbi-ntsc-cc tool. The default is "ntsc-cc".

              zvbi-atsc-cc  supports  all  Closed  Caption  character sets and
              converts to the encoding of the current locale, usually UTF-8.

       -p --plain
              Same as -j plain

   XDS options
       -x --xds
              Print all received XDS data on standard output.

       -X file name
       --xds-file file name
              Filter out eXtended Data Service  data  (station  name,  program
              name,  program  rating  etc.)  and  append  it  as  text  to the
              specified file.

       -f type[,type]*
       --filter type[,type]*
              Filter out specific XDS information:  all,  call  (station  call
              sign),  desc  (program synopsis), length, network, rating, time,
              timecode, timezone, title. Multiple -f options  accumulate.  The
              default is "all".


       zvbi-atsc-cc -c NJN-HD

       zvbi-atsc-cc --cc1-file wnyw.txt WNYW-DT --cc1-file wwor.txt WWOR-DT

       (NJN-HD, WNYW-DT and WWOR-DT are TV stations in New York. WNYW-DT
       and WWOR-DT can be captured simultaneously because they share a
       transponder frequency.)
