I don't think it's *that* bad to add.  In any case, I only supported dvb-compliant devices and not the HDHR because

1. I don't have an HDHR.  If I did, I probably would have put support in from the get go.
2. Someone told me that the HDHR guys are putting in support themselves.
3. I also patched dvbsnoop to read the tables.  HDHR users can probably use the mode where it can input from a file.

It'll take a bit more work, but dvbsnoop output can conceivably be processed using a shell script.

The patch can be found here:
