If you send me a .diff that works against the dvbpatch I can put it in there and
we can get some feedback that way..

The non MPEGTS defined tables..

NIT (dvb) -> ??? (atsc)
SDT (dvb) -> TVCT/CVTC (atsc)
DVB-EIT (dvb) -> ATSC-EIT (atsc)

PAT/PMT/CAT are all defined by the MpegTS spec and are identical in dvb and

Once you read the data they all contain the same stuff but as raw tables they
are completely incompatiable..
