Ugh. Stupidly wide pages (in both Browse and Netsurf) - too wide for this 15"
monitor. Yet it looks reasonable in Firefox, though there's an assumption
about the window width...

That's not possible without allowing some channels' PIDs to be updated and
preventing others from being updated.
BBC Parliament and 303 (formerly 703) have VPID=0 according to the broadcast
data, but share PID 202 for video (there are three sub-pictures); this
_should_ be acquired via MHEG-5.
