Support for DVB-S channels with no SDT / NIT tables

Description

There are some DVB-S services on Optus D1 that don't have any SDT or NIT entries on their TS stream. For details see 12643V at http://www.lyngsat.com/optusd1.html. This impacts MythTV users in Australia and New Zealand. Users of other Linux PVR projects and users with STBs are not effected.

danielk suggests the following enhancement:


Just set the sistandard to 'avpid', and then stick the pids in the pidcache with a bogus tableid. This way multiple audio and video pids can be supported. All you have to do to TVRec is extend SetupDTVSignalMonitor with the new tuningmode. Implementing a signal monitor and streamdata classes should be relatively simple.


This fix would be a great benefit to the MythTV Australia and New Zealand communities.
