The command
    tcpdump -i dvb0_0

will show you all traffic (also IP) that is received on the network 
interface dvb0_0. So, if everything is setup correctly, and there's 
actually some data transmitted on the PID you should see it.

If you can't see any traffic, test if there are actually transmissions 
on the PID. You can use 'dvbsnoop' for this:
    dvbsnoop -s ts -hexdumpbuffer -npd -sync 512
with 512 being the PID.

If there is data on your PID, maybe you can post the output of dvbsnoop 
(the dump of the data).

Best regards,
