That's interesting, because I've previously thought that the kernel 
demux didn't understand 144 (?) byte packets.

Does this actually work, and are the regular DVB tools giving you 144 
transport packets? Which applications do you use for analysis and/or 

The HVR4000 silicon supports DSS but I've never enabled it, if the 
applications and kernel support are maturing then I'll certainly do 
this. Why not, right?

Let me know.
