Within the Digital Video Broadcasting (DVB) family of standards, DVB-SH (satellite to handheld devices) is the first standard for a hybrid system offering parallel reception of satellite and terrestrial signals. In this paper, we discuss the architecture and implementation of a full-featured DVB-SH receiver. In addition, a laboratory test bed including a DVB-SH signal generator that can be used for DVB-SH system validation and receiver characterization is presented. We provide some key results of receiver performance measurements in typical channel conditions. Finally, we highlight the advantage of a multi-frequency network configuration in case of a hybrid reception scenario.
