Those tables is repeatedly written to various pid numbers. And they indicate
themself when they change!

I've come familiar with reading these tables/sections lately, so I'll write
up a filter, so you can access the data in it..

Can't see any reason for having to specify the PIDS unless there is some
transponders/service providers out there who won't send correct data?

We could have made a extra table in the db where users could map Program
Number (!chanid) to PIDS themself, if it's not there we do it automagically?
