AFAIK, OpenTV standard is "closed". We can't get specifications for it,
so it is basically reverse engineering. Same for MediaHighway.
Still, for MediaHighway, JC Repetto developped a small program to be
able to get EPG and put it in the epg.data (http://jrepetto.free.fr/). I
don't know if it still works, but was 1 year ago when I tried it.
Sure that EPG decoding for both standards included in a plugin will be a
major breakthrough for VDR users that have poor standard EPG support
from their broadcasters. Anybody? :)
The future will probably be MHP/Multimedia Home Plateform (www.mhp.orgh)
which proposes an opened standard. But I don't know if any broadcaster
uses it at the moment (some pilots in Finland).
