Aye, you need to add a specific entry for it - it won't appear or be
detected automatically.. Your STB is being more intelligent about it
and 'hunting out' any PID that happens to have traffic.

Chances are it was always the other way round and I'm just
misremembering. After all it's been a couple of years :)

Well, once you can get the single video PID into something like
VideoLAN, you'll easily be able to pass it through a crop filter and
then re-encode for the LAN.

You're really that desperate to watch BBC PARLIAMENT? :)

Alternatively, if you have cable, get a DVB-C card since BBC PARL is
free-to-air and is a standalone channel, no trickery required.
