#4277 closed enhancement (invalid)

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

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 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.
