This would be a terrific change if you were to do it!

As a DVB-T user could you fill me in with the issues as to why it ends up being DVB-S specific?  Could you perhaps send me your dvbchannel patch to have a look at to at least understand what you did to make it faster?

Thanks Kenneth, I do really appreciate the time you have spent on this
