DVBStreamExplorer is an application to explore SI information in MPEG2 transport streams.
It supports most common DVB cards for PC, such as TechnoTrend Premium, Bugdet and USB families, Hauppauge Nexus/Nova, B2C2 Broadband4PC devices like SkyStar2, Sky2PC and Cable4PC, Air2PC and Twinhan VisionPlus DTV.
The intended audience for this application is mostly developers working with ISO13818-1 defined transport streams, or users who like me are simply curios about the content of these transport streams. A understanding of the transport stream defined in ISO13818-1 would improve the usefulness of this application. As a good starting point for users who want to know more about the DVB standards I would recommend "A guideline for the use of DVB specifications and standards" reference TR 101 200 which can be downloaded from www.etsi.org. From here you will find reference to most important standards which DVB is based on.

Display SI information in tree/list view.
Most descriptors from ISO13818-1 and EN 300 468 are displayed

One of the DVB cards/USB boxes supported.
