EPG for Polsat 13E
Polsat uses OpenTV for feeding EPG to its users. It would be a nice feature to have TVH parse it and make use of that data.
After investigation I can say that chanel PIDs are definetly the same as for other platforms (pid 17). Where is send the rest of the data is somewhat unclear to me but IMHO it needs to be channel operated by Polsat and in regular DVB-S not DVB-S2 so all Polsat users have access to it. Trials I performed seem to point to channels from 11158 V http://pl.kingofsat.net/tp.php?tp=247 as those channels have several PMT pids including PIDs: 33,34,35,36,37,38,39,40,41,42,50,54,57
In bzip file I attach result of dvbsnoop -s pidscan for virtually all Polsat channels (TV/Radio/Data) listed in http://pl.kingofsat.net/pack-polsat.php
I aslo attach result of dvbsnoop -nph -n 500 0x11 done on few channels. Result for Nickelodeon is larger probably as it is not Polsat transponder and probably more data is being send there

How would one go about getting the right parameters using a DVB-S2 card on linux? Polsat currently has 6 different frequencies on Hotbird13, but all of them are DVB-S2. Also, is it even possible to recover the Huffman dictionary? I have access to a tv with working EPG, so i kind of know what is currently being broadcast.
