thanks, that explains at least why there's nothing to find in the 
original specification. But it seems the paper is not available for 
free. Before i spend money on this (though its not much) id like to know 
a bit more about it. Also most of the iso standard papers do not include 
much info about the practical use.
So maybe anyone who worked with this can explain me some details:
- does this method require flow-control (kommunication with the server)?
- what are the requirements for a receiver to manage dsm-cc download 
sections ?
- is there support of this method in DVB? (since i only know of the 
DSM-CC caraousel being used in DVB)
