New client for controlling the DVB cards

I am proud to announce the first public release of a new client for controlling the DVBs cards from Technotrend/Hauppauge/Siemens, which are supported by the DVB driver of Ralph Metzler. This client is called 'dtv' and focuses on the correct interpretation of program information sent through the DVB-SI datastream. It tries to do its best in serving as a replacement of commercial set-top boxes like the D-Box. There is no function to record/replay broadcastings at the moment, but you can do with it (hopefully) nearly all things beside that. 'dtv' owns the following features:
Other features are on my list, suggestions or improvements are always very welcome. The program should be pretty stable, because I use it for quite half a year now as my primary and only satellite receiver box without major problems. WARNING: As 'dtv', especially the Videotext part of it, uses the OSD code as it was a few weeks ago, I would recommend to use a driver, which is not newer than mid of may, at least until the OSD memory becomes as big as it was at this point.
I release this code under Gnu GPL, the project is hosted by SourceForge.Net with the Name hesdvb. The first release of DTV can be downloaded from:
