 (In [11693]) Fixes #2579. Adds two new system information table types for
 MPEG streams, "mpeg" and "opencable".

 The problem with "OpenCable" is that it uses a different stream id for
 video 0x80 which is already being used for other data in DVB countries for
 other uses. We were remapping the 0x80 stream id to the standard video
 stream id unconditionally which caused problems when this was not in fact
 a video stream.

 With this change we mark a transport as being either a "dvb", "atsc",
 "opencable" or "mpeg" instead of just marking it as either "dvb" or "atsc"
 during the channel scan. This allows us to avoid this 0x80->video stream
 id mapping when in a DVB country, but still perform the remapping when the
 channel really is an "opencable" channel.
