If the pids of a given service change quite often (unusual), you will have to 
regularly parse PAT/PMT to retrieve the new pids and set the demuxer 
Another option, if your device support that, is to get the whole TS from the 
current mplex (dvbstream <options> 8192) so that you wont have to set the 
demux on each change.
