the pmt_pid is the pid that contains the PMT; it's listed in the pat.
if you dump the whole stream to a file with
dvbstream -f ... -o 8192 > dump.ts
you will get a list of programs->pmt_pid
At this point you just have to add the pmt_pid that you want to see
to the list of pids in ~/.mplayer/channels.conf, e.g.
(notice the + between consecutive pids)
(i you run mplayer dump.ts (maybe adding -tsprobe 5000000) -vid 1502
you will see H264).
P.S. notice this line:
VIDEO MPEG2(pid=1502) AUDIO A52(pid=1505) NO SUBS (yet)! PROGRAM N. 0
program n.0 means that no program was found, so no pmt was available.
@all maintaners: several months ago I posted a patch to scan to add this
to the broken channels.conf, but it was completely ignored.
Since questions like these are so often recurring I think it's the right
time to commit it.
