TransEdit is a transponder list editor, scanner and analyzer for DVB-S, DVB-T, DVB-C, ISDB and ATSC. As an add-on for DVBViewer Pro/GE it provides extended channel search capabilities. TransEdit supports TechniSat cards (SkyStar2/S2, AirStar2, CableStar2) with WDM driver and DVB devices with BDA driver (Broadcast Driver Architecture).
Christian Hackbart, who initially supported this project by providing source code,
Crypto, Derrick, Oliver, halalev, hdv and Tjod for beta-testing and inspiration
...and particularly Lars, who contributed the source code for the TS Analyzer.
Store the files TransEdit.exe and
Huffman.dll in the DVBViewer installation folder (where DVBViewer.exe
is located). TransEdit requires DVBViewer Pro 4.5 or later, or
DVBViewer GE 3.0 or later. Without such a DVBViewer installation some
functions are not available.
Create a shortcut on your desktop or in the start menu, if you like, by dragging the TransEdit.exe file with the right mouse button to the desired location.
Additionally download the TransEdit manual (TransEdit_Manual.zip) and store the files TransEdit.chm and TransEditHelp.ini in the same directory as TransEdit.exe, thus enabling a context-sensitive help: Pressing F1 opens the manual section for the currently selected window or control element.
The Transponders directory in the downloaded TransEdit ZIP file contains up-to-date transponder lists for Astra 19°/23°/28° East and Hotbird 13° East as INI files. If you want to use them for scanning, do the following:
Open an Explorer Window showing the content of the DVBViewer configuration by selecting „Info/ Configuration Folder“ in TransEdit.
Store the new transponder list files in the Transponders sub-directory of the configuration folder.
TransEdit is a free add-on for purchasers of DVBViewer Pro exclusively. You use it at your own risk. It is provided "as is" without any warranty.

TransEdit uses the FastMM Memory Management Unit and the Virtual Treeview Component for Delphi, both released under the Mozilla Public License 1.1 (MPL 1.1, http://www.mozilla.org/MPL/MPL-1.1.html). The source code is available from http://sourceforge.net/projects/fastmm/ resp. http://www.lischke-online.de/VirtualTreeview/
TransEdit consists of five functional units:
Transponder List Editor: The main window provides a convenient way to create, edit and update transponder lists, that enable fast and accurate scanning. They are stored as INI files and contain all frequencies that are used for broadcasting, including polarization, symbolrate, bandwidth, modulation and other data.
Scanner: TransEdit allows to easily scan certain frequencies (transponders) or the whole frequency range for channels. It performs a high-speed search and displays the results in a detailed list, that can be sorted in different ways. Interesting findings can be selected and directly exported to the DVBViewer's channel list.. TransEdit marks channels that are already present in the channel list so that you can see what's new. If a channel's characteristics turn out to have changed, you can update it with a few mouse clicks.
TS Analyzer: This part gives a deep insight in what is broadcasted on a DVB transponder. It reads the Service Information Tables (SI) bit by bit and translates them into a tree structure, thus providing all available information about networks, transponders, services, bouquets and events. Additionally it lists all streams that are present on a transponder, even those not intended for the public. For each stream the TS Analyzer displays the Packet Identifier (PID), the stream type and data rate, and allows to record an arbitrary selection as TS (Transport Stream) file. Furthermore the Analyzer allows to examine the content of TS files, as if broadcasted live.
Pre-Viewer: A simple built-in viewer can be used to immediately play the channels, video- and audio streams that have been detected by the Scanner or TS Analyzer.
Positioner Console: Provides commands for setting up and adjusting a motorized dish
TransEdit is able to use two or more DVB
devices resp. tuners at the same time. For example, if the scanner
occupies device A, the TS Analyzer or Preview can work simultaneously
with device B, and vice versa.
If you are interested in what's going on in the satellite sphere, TransEdit is exactly what you need. Frequently new channels appear or are switched off, some pay-TV channels are temporarily broadcasting „free-to-air“, non-public channels (feeds) are used for internal transmission... TransEdit enables you to keep track of it.
