Some Googling suggests that Sky do use MHEG, but I can't find anything 
definitive - I'll have to have a play with the "Red Button" utilities and 
see if I can convince it do do anything.  Is there a good way of finding 
out what's actually in a transport stream?  dvbtraffic will tell me what 
PIDs are there and their data rates but AFAIK nothing about what sort of 
content they are carrying.
