Forget what I said above. I think tsid may not be useful useful for what
I need. Because UK DTT only uses one original network id for all of the
uk multiplexes it cannot guarantee the consistency of version numbers in
"other" tables. So I need to separately track the "other" table version
numbers for each multiplex in a local transmitter group. So what I am
really looking for is a way from inside eithelper to distinguish between
Once again. Anyone got any ideas?
